JAX-WS Tutorial

jaxws tutorials

Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS), is a set of APIs for creating web services in XML format (SOAP). JAX-WS provides many annotation to simplify the development and deployment for both web service clients and web service providers (endpoints).

In this tutorials, it provides many step by step examples and explanations on both JAX-WS 2.0 and JAXWS 2.1.

Happy learning JAX-WS :)

web services with in few lines of codes.

Dear Mkyong, your examples are simple and helpful but I have a problem with a web-service – this service is on the .NET and it returns a DataSet result. what do you recommend to consume it in java?

big thanks

I see it excite anyone else, my solution was: I read structure of returned result from provider site and then I created Jax-B object and parse into it. cbrRequest() is just a method that takes current date and sent it to the provider and gets a block of information that then is parsed. I take a block that I need from it and unmarshal in my object of created class – ValuteCursOnDate. I also used some logging and parsing result from provider to find out format of the result xml there is a class to do it: https://github.com/vsuslov/tutorials/blob/master/cbr.txt and ValuteCursOnDate:… Read more »

I am developing JAX-WS SAOP webservice and it’s wroking fine. My another requirement is to get / capture the reguested xml from client side and needs to store in the Database.
From your example i am using SOAP handler to intersept the incoming message and trying to get each element/node in the incoming message and it is very diffcult to get each element/node.
Is there any other way to get the requested saop XML.

Thank,

I have a litle problem that i hope you can help me to undenstand the best way to resolve it. The problem is about WAS 8.5.5 and JAX-WS RI. I read your article about WAS 7 and Metro (that I find it very interesting), but the question is a little bit different. I try (like IBM say at http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v8r5/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.websphere.base.doc%2Fae%2Ftwbs_thirdparty.html) to run a stupid example that expose a webservice that throw an exception in… Read more »

Is the SOAP supports only XML streaming? As the REST supports differents streaming of data(like JSON,XML) What is required to SOAP to support JSON streaming Data

Ravi
Guest
Ravi

I came to know data stream nothing to do with SOAP or REST Every data stream can be sent through these protocol(REST is not protocol It is architectural style Still we compare both) Only mechanism of binding to java object put into place.Binding to objects provided automatically by the webservice framework like CXF and AXIS
