Subject Re: Questions for Axis2 folks re: JAXWS
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 18:09:35 GMT
Hi Jeff,

Yes I totally agree that the tool needs to be for axis2 only and handled 
during deployment time!  Basically, during deployment of the module, 
we'll invoke the tool on the fly and generate the .wsdl file for the 
user, and set the PortInfo's wsdlLocation property.  Then the code will 
be executed as if the .wsdl is provided by the user, which we know works 
right now.   I was just trying to run the tool stand-alone first to make 
sure it is good for our need.:-)  I'll investigate if there is any 
license issue.

Also, this doesn't cover the second scenario, when .wsdl file is 
provided  but the location of the .wsdl file is specified in annotation 
but not in webservices.xml.   In this case, we 'll need to figure out 
the location of the .wsdl file from annotation (not sure how to do that 
yet) and set the PortInfo's wsdlLocation property.
