Creating SOAP Web Services with NetBeans 6

In this blog i will show you, how easily you can create Web Services with NetBeans 6. In further postings i will discuss how to manipulate the SOAP Message before the Web Service Operation is called.

For this example i am using JAX-WS 2.1 with NetBeans 6.0 .

Web Services Description Language (WSDL)

There are many ways how to get starting with Web Services. One variant is beginning with the creation of the WSDL. First, you must know what the Web Service should do. You have to consider what is the input and output of each Web Service Operation. In our example we have only one Operation, named as “getcalculateValues“. The input are two numbers, the result is only the sum of both.

Hibernate with Guice – Part II

Welcome back to Part II about using Hibernate with Guice. If you just stepped in, i recommend first to read Part I here.

Part II – Adding Guice to the Hibernate-Application

This application uses Guice’s Dependency Injection to create the HibernateConnection-instance and the OrdersDAO-instance. You can see that HibernateUtil don’t need STATICs anymore. Access to HibernateUtil is wrapped through a HibernateConnection which is created in a ConnectionProvider as a Singleton. Providers are acting as Factories in creating and returning Objects.
