Hi all,
I just started working with the jwsdp tutorial using ant to to build/deploy a web service. And before I get too involved, I Have some questions:
1) For those who have used both jwsdp/ant and Axixs, which one do you prefer in terms of ease of web service creation, client invocation, ease of iterative development (i.e., is it a total pain just to add a comma to a returned string?), etc?
2) IF you've ever worked with CFMX, you know that creating and invoking web services is SUPER EASY. Has anyone used anything in java that even remotely resembles CFMX's ease of web service use?
3) Same question as no. 2 applies to c# and .net: it doesn't get much easier than that. Any java equivalents? I'm thinking along the lines of a web services tag lib that, as a client, would allow me to do something like this:
<ws:invoke url="blah.wsdl" method="getName" returnvariable="name">
...and then simply...
<%= name%>
I guess my main question is this: other languages (CFMX and C#/.net) make web services quite palatable and make better use of my time (and thus, more $). How can I achieve the same results in java?
Thanks for your thoughts.
Marc

In terms of an easy Java based web service technology, I hear a lot of good things about GLUE - I think the URL is http://www.themindelectric.com/
