Subject Re: New Howto: Defining Contract first webservices with wsdl generation from java
Date Wed, 20 Aug 2008 11:13:44 GMT
Hi Adrian,

first thanks for your comments. I apreciate your help. I know it is 
possible to configure these things and I will add the description of how 
to do this. But I myself are not using endpoint, service and binding on 
the client and server side. I only use the porttype to get my code. That 
is because we use SOAP/JMS and this is not possible to describe in a 
compatible way in WSDL so it can be used across the main platforms we 
use. (Java, Tibco BW and .Net).

The other thing with service endpoints is that we have different servers 
for develop, test and production. So one address in the wsdl would be no 
help. Do you have any idea how to handle this? Currently we configure 
the jms or http server address in a config file for the deployment so 
the admin can adjust it at runtime.

Best regards,
