Hi,

What is the difference between a simple jws and standard web service (one which has wsdd etc.)?

What are the limitations of jws?

Thanks.

Well, the major difference is there is no WSDD, so any functionality set up in one is not available. That includes custom type mapping, configuring handlers and security, controlling which methods get published, etc. You also need the source code, and I think Axis doesn't create WSDLs for JWS-based services.

Note that Axis 2 no longer supports JWS, because the new JAX-WS API makes it rather easy to take a Java class and expose its methods using the @WebService and @WebMethod annotations.

Seriously, don't use JWS in a production setting.
