In DetailWeb services are applications that use open, XML-based standards and transport protocols to exchange data with clients. In the book Developing a JAX-WS Web Service using the wsimport clientjar Option, we shall create a JAX-WS web service with Java 7. We shall discuss the new clientjar option in the wsimport tool or the wsimport ant task which is used to generate JAX-WS portable artifacts from a service wsdl. Subsequently, we use the web service artifacts to invoke the web service from a web service client.ApproachThis book takes a practical approach for building JAX WS web services with Java 7. Plenty of sample code and screenshots are used to help you apply these concepts in a real-world scenario.Who this book is forThis book is targeted at developers who want to create web services with Java 7. If you use NetBeans-Glassfish for Java EE development you would be interested in how the new wsimport clientjar option may be leveraged to simplify web service development.
