This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See 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 ?
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).
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
