Subject Re: New Howto: Defining Contract first webservices with wsdl generation from java
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2008 22:40:31 GMT
Hi Christian,

Thanks for the contribution! Usually I stay away from code-first, but  
I do see the value in using the Java interface as a DSL. I think  
though that your page should include notes on how to use the JAX-WS  
attributes to do more, like:

* specify the portType name
* specify the kind of binding
* specify the name of the endpoint
* specify the name of the service

.... for me, good naming in the WSDL file makes for better reusability  
and a more aesthetic foundation for a service.
