I'm trying to develop a test webservice without the sun-jaxws.xml, I'm using Tomcat 7 as is, adding the jaxws-rt 2.2.7 dependency in the eclipse project by maven. The dynamic web module facet is the 3.0.
The SEI is
It works without the web.xml file, but not without the sun-jaxws. The request always have a 404 response, only works with the sun-jaxws.xml.
Of course, with the use of jax-ws annotations, even configuration sun-jaxws.xml can be made optional making it completely descriptor free, but that requires specifying a default url-pattern like in JSR-109 or custom pattern like in Jersey REST services, in the JAX-WS specification.
but I don't know how to specify the url-pattern by annotation.
