In the past I've shown how to use Ant
and the JWSC
task to build a JAX-WS web service
, well I've moved onto Maven
now and started to use the Oracle WebLogic Maven plugin
to build services. This is an example on how to build a JAX-WS
web service using that plugin, specifically the wsgen
It should be noted that even though the plugin still provides the ws-jwsc
goal, it has been deprecated and should not be used. I found that ws-jwsc
was full of bugs when I used it in the past, wsgen
is much more reliable.
Since I am using Maven
, I have a standard folder structure for my service, which looks like this...
All of the above files are available from GitHub
Below is the configuration for the plugin. The most significant part is on line 15
where I specify the service endpoint interface (SEI
), which is my web service implementation class.
That's pretty much all there is to it. As long as you package your project as a WAR
takes care of the rest.
Once you run 'mvn clean package'
, you will get a target/WsExample-1.0.war
file which can be deployed to WebLogic. Once deployed the WSDL
should be accessible at a URL similar to: http://localhost:7001/WsExample-1.0/WsExample?wsdl
