When I go through a simple NetBeans tutorial to develop a web service, I end up with code like this:



And I can relate the above code to annotations like @WebService, the message handlers, etc. which is consistent with the web service certification objectives. Using Axis 2 (and probably also Axis?), all I do is supply a class:

And lo and behold! it generates the web service (Spring WS also does this), including bindings for SOAP 1.2, SOAP 1.1 and HTTP/REST! Amazing! However, with Axis, there is no additional generated code where I can see annotations like @WebService, @WebMethod, etc.

Two questions:

1. Is development using Axis just a different way to develop web services that is not compliant with JAX-WS (but compliant with SOAP, etc. nevertheless)?
2. My experience is with Spring web services, where I provide the XSDs with the request and response element names as expected by Spring WS, and it generates the WSDL. In other words, the WSDL is generated using a supplied schema. But with Axis 2, the WSDL is generated from the Java code. So is Axis 2 the same as JAX-RPC?

Or am I completely and thoroughly confused with all this? LOL

Please help. Thanks in advance!

Ok. Got it. It is all explained here: http://ws.apache.org/axis2/1_5_1/jaxws-guide.html

Thank you.
