I tried to publish a web service similar to the one described in the tutorial below. I did not use the out-of-the-box Ivy WS process as each of the WS have many methods (and decided to build them in Java instead).


Using Endpoint.publish() I specified the location for the WS. However, this requires me to run the class containing this method in the java console, and then run Ivy. I tried tying Endpoint.publish() to a "Start Process" in Ivy but it did not work.

public class SOAPPublisher {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Endpoint.publish("http://localhost:8888/ws/depotWS99", new WSDepotShopImpl());

Is there a "best practices" method to building a SOAP WS via Java in Ivy, and how do I get the WS published in Ivy? Thanks!

I don't see any value in building a plain JAX-WS service in Ivy without using ivy...

The Ivy way is:

  • create a new Process of type 'Webservice Process'
  • define a signature (in/out parameters)
  • implement business logic in the process that handles webservice invocations and return a result. You can do this in plain Java, but don't have to. You can use all the rich APIs and ProcessElements that speeds up the development time.

Behind the scenes ivy will generate a normal JAX-WS endpoint with everything you need. And it will provide monitoring, logging, authentication and deployment life-cycle handling out of the box.

...and if there is really something missing. You still can modify the generated JAX-WS service descriptor and implement it with anything you like in plain Java.

Hey Reguel, thank you for your reply. I tried building the WS this way, but I am stuck trying to figure out how to build multiple methods for one Webservice (without building a separate WS for each method). It is a requirement for me to use one WS only. How would you suggest to do this? Thanks!

You can add further methods to the same WebService by adding another 'WS Start' event to the process.
