Hi all,

I am new to web service. I have couple of doubts if you could help me out with i'd be thankful

1. to create web services in eclipse there are two ways : 1. install WTP 2. install axis2-eclipse-codegenerator plugin. IS that right what I understood? If not completely, please throw some light on it.

2. how can I make eclipse ganymede to act like WTP ? do I have to install any plugin? if yes, what plugins and where to install them ? If no, then is WTP is totally different IDE then ganymede ?

Hi!
Strictly speaking, you do not need to install any particular plugin to develop JAX-WS web services. I imagine the WTP tools are helpful, because you will probably want to create a Dynamic Web Project in Eclipse when developing a web service. The simplest form of a JAX-WS web service is a @WebService annotated Java class, nothing more is required - no deployment descriptors etc. The (dynamic web) project in which the class resides is then simply deployed to, for instance, GlassFish.

Regretfully, I don't know about Eclipse Ganymede and WTP - I guess it may depend on the Eclipse package (for instance, if it was the JavaEE package or the JavaSE package).
Best wishes!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
