    Smashing Magazine

    This one is a real good one. This article from Smashing Magazine gives you a very high level view of what jQuery can do. A real good starter for those who want to try out the possibilities of jQuery in their projects.

    Every aspiring Web developer should know about the power of JavaScript and how it can be used to enhance the ways in which people see and interact with Web pages. Fortunately, to help us be more productive, we can use the power of JavaScript libraries, and in this article we will take a good look at jQuery in action.

    How-to: Write web services using Axis2 (Part 2) 

    In my previous post I wrote about writing a web service provider using axis. But I did not mention a few things in that post.

    1. How to make the service accessible to the outside world
    2. How to write a Java client to avail the services

    1. How to make the service accessible to the outside world?

    As we are using the axis2.war as the way to deploy the services, we don’t really need to do anything. The deployment descriptor (web.xml) of axis2.war is equipped to handle it. But we need to make some URL mapping and stuffs like that.

    • Add appropriate URL-servlet mapping  in the web.xml
    • Add the name of the AAR in the service list

    a. Deployment descriptor changes:

     <servlet>
       <servlet-name>AxisServlet</servlet-name>
       <display-name>Apache-Axis Servlet</display-name>
       <servlet-class>org.apache.axis2.transport.http.AxisServlet</servlet-class>
      <load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
     </servlet>
    
     <servlet-mapping>
       <servlet-name>AxisServlet</servlet-name>
       <url-pattern>/servlet/AxisServlet</url-pattern>
     </servlet-mapping>
    
     <servlet-mapping>
       <servlet-name>AxisServlet</servlet-name>
       <url-pattern>/services/*</url-pattern>
     </servlet-mapping>
    

    b. Add the name of the AAR in WEB-INF/services/services.list.

    2. Writing a Java client to access the services

    We have several ways to create the client stubs – JiXB, ADB etc. I followed ADB – Axis Data Binding. Axis provides a WSDL2Java tool to create client stubs from an existing WSDL. We can get the WSDL from http://localhost/services/SampleWs?wsdl.

    WSDL2Java -uri SampleWs.wsdl -p subin.rnd.ws.client -d adb -s -o clientStubSrcDirectory_name

    This will create the stub in the specified directory with name SampleWsStub.java. Once the stub is ready, we can write a client module which tries to access the deployed services.

    WsClient.java

    package subin.rnd.ws.client;
    
    import subin.rnd.ws.client.SampleWsStub.WsInput;
    import subin.rnd.ws.client.SampleWsStub.WsOutput;
    
    public class WsClient
    {
     public static void main(String[] args)
     throws Exception
     {
       SampleWsStub stub = new SampleWsStub("http://localhost/services/SampleWs");
    
       // Send the request
       SampleWsStub.DoSomething request = new SampleWsStub.DoSomething();
       WsInput anInput = new WsInput();
       anInput.setName("subin");
       request.setAnInput(anInput);
    
       // Get the response
       SampleWsStub.DoSomethingResponse response = stub.doSomething(request);
       WsOutput anOutput = response.get_return();
    
       System.out.println(anOutput.getResponseString());
     }
    }
    

    And that’s it !!!
