Hi,


I need to create a web service using Java Implementation.
The Web service aim is to import the data from another application and map each field/column to the required XML output.


Here are my Version specs,
- JRE 1.6
- Eclipse3.4
- Type of webservice - Document literal.


I'm new to webservices. I've configured my eclipse environment. Please help me out how to proceed with it. Also need to publish this webservice on a server.

Thanks & Regards,
Vidhi

Hi Vidhi,

Welcome to Ranch.

I would like to know your deployment server.Its an application server or simple Servlet container like Tomcat. Which web services stack are you using Axis, JAX-WS or something else?

Hi Vijay,

Thanks for your reply.
Currently I'm using tomcat configured with my eclipse. The deployment server would also be the same.
My client is BMC remedy that will supply data fields to Java webservice, and that web service would result in XML.

I've never worked on Webservices earlier, just read documents/tutorials on internet. I'm not clear also which direction should I proceed with, whether JAXB or JAXWS or JAXP? According to my understanding, JAXP is used for Document-oriented webservices but their is limitation to transfer XML. Also please suggest me what should I go with.

Thanks & Regards,
Vidhi

Hi vidhi,

If you are using Tomcat (JSP/Servlet) container then you can use Axis2 for web services.See this url Axi2.

JAXB or JAXWS or JAXP?



JAX-WS - is latest web service stack its use JAXB internally to bind XML data mapping with JAVA and JAXP is use to process of XML document. JAXP vs JAXB

you can use document oriented web service using Axis2(JAX-WS). First you need to create schemas (.xsd) files which will be used for data binding and data validation for send and received from BMC remedy client. Then you need to create a WSDL file which will define your web service and the use axis2 runtime for creating web service.

Hello Vijay,

Thanks a lot. You showed me a path how to proceed further.
I've created .xsd files. While creating wsdl file using Axis2, I am encountered with the following error:

[ERROR] The service cannot be found for the endpoint reference (EPR) http://localhost:8080/ws4/services/AdminService
at org.apache.axis2.engine.DispatchPhase.checkPostConditions(DispatchPhase.java:65)
at org.apache.axis2.engine.Phase.invoke(Phase.java:333)
at org.apache.axis2.engine.AxisEngine.invoke(AxisEngine.java:264)
at org.apache.axis2.engine.AxisEngine.receive(AxisEngine.java:163)
.........and a huge stacktrace



What should I handle this?

Regards,
Vidhi.

Hi,

I believe you are using JAVA2WSDL utility to create your web service using GUI of eclipse.

[ERROR] The service cannot be found for the endpoint reference (EPR



It should come after developing the web service. You can also post your WSDL and xsd file and also tell me how did you expose your webservice. It will help me to understand your problem clearly

Friends,

I need a clarification from the link provided in the previous posts : http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/community/tutorials/TopDownAxis2WebService/td_tutorial.html

I am unable to proceed with the article as I could not find the "Axis Preference" sub preference under the "Web Service" preference.

I have attached the screen shot of the Windows --> Preference page for "Web Service".

I tried all the WTP plugin releases available in the Eclipse website but could not make "Axis Preference" to show up.

Could anyone please point me to the URL where I can find the relevant plugins for this.

Cheers,
Bala
