These APIs can be used b y a J2EE application server to integrate JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 for hosting JAX-WS services
Tightly integrated with Glassfish
Supports EJB and Web endpoints
109 based deployment support for better portability
JAX-WS RI specific deployment descriptor support
Light weight HTTP server
Bundled with JDK 6
Any other container that supports Servlet 2.4, such as Tomcat, Jetty, Geronimo, JBoss, Resin, ... You name it!
This release brings in the highly pluggable framework through abstractions such as Tube and Message. This architecture document is a glorified javadoc which includes all the JAX-WS RI specific APIs. JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 has many bug fixes made for interoperability with .NET 3.0. This is made mostly possible due to WSIT, which uses JAX-WS plugabble architecture to plug in support for WS-Metadata, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Transaction, WS-SecureConversation and WS-Security.
If you wish to use JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 in a Java EE container in a Java EE portable manner you need to use the standard Java EE 6 deployment descriptor; please refer to the Java EE 6 or Glassfish documentation/samples. The majority of the documentation included with JAX-WS is valid with Java EE 6 as well.
3. Online Documentation
The documentation for JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 as well as the sample applications will be periodically updated in the JAX-WS project.
The architecture document describing the latest JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 can be found here .
Please go to http://jax-ws.java.net for the latest documentation and samples.
4. Required Software
Requires JDK 6 or later
Requires Ant 1.6.2 or later
Tested to work with GlassFish v3.1 and Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
5. Installation Instructions
The following applies to the JAX-WS standalone bundles.
Extract JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 bundle
To install on GlassFish v2
If you want to use the JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 overriding the one with Glassfish v2, Download Metro 2.1 bundle from http://metro.java.net and follow the instructions in that bundle
To use with GlassFish v3.1
GlassFish v3.1 has JAX-WS RI 2.2.7, so there is no installation step.
To install on Tomcat
CATALINA_HOMEto your Tomcat installation.
This essentially copies
lib/*.jarfrom the root of JAX-WS RI extracted bundle to
If you are running on top of JDK6, run
for detailed information.
If you intend to only invoke an already existing Web service,
then alternatively you can use the wsimport and
wsgen scripts in the
directory of the JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 bundle.
6. Running on top of JDK 6
JDK 6u4 includes JAX-WS 2.1 and JAXB 2.1 API and RI.
JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 includes RI of JAX-WS/JAXB 2.2. In order to run
JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 you would need to specify ONLY
jaxb-api.jar jars using the Java
Endorsed Standards Override Mechanism
7. Jar dependency
Table 1. Jar dependencies summary
All the runtime jars +
If you run JAX-WS RI 2.2.7 with IBM JDK, there are two options:
to add Oracles's JAXP implementation jars along
to remove the saaj-impl.jar from the libraries in order IBM SAAJ implementation to be used
First approach is recommended.
8. Current Limitations
java.util.Collectionclasses cannot be used with rpc/literal or document/literal
BAREstyle due to a limitation in JAXB. However, they do work in the default document/literal
9. Bugs Fixed in this release
10. Known Bugs/Issues
Although JAX-WS customizations are portable across implementations, the names of WSDL and schema files generated are not specified. Therefore each vendor may and most likely will generate different names. Therefore, when switching between implementations of JAX-WS, it may be necessary to modify your customization files to reflect different WSDL and schema file names.
This holds true for different releases of the JAX-WS RI. The JAX-WS RI may in each release change these file names to resolve bugs. If and when this does occur, a developer would need to change the filenames in their customization files to match the new file names.
A bug in apt ant task makes it not work by default. Workaround is to use
fork="true"option in the apt task.
