JIRA Soap Service deprecated on JIRA 7.x

Recently JIRA 6.x is upgraded to JIRA 7.x. One of the web application is accessing JIRA 6.x using SOAP Service but in JIRA 7.x SOAP service is deprecated and no more we can access it through wsdl.

Can you provide a better example on how to connect to JIRA 7.x and create a login token to access the JIRA functionalities.

We have used a web reference - jirasoapservice-v2.wsdl

Thanks in advance.
