Just wondering about a particular problem...
We have external servers/suppliers of information which will push information to us by having us implement a wsdl they provide which they then use to push us data....
Current solutions appear to allow creating a server from pojo/ejb...or to generate a standalone server from wsdl...
However, we would ideally want a solution that is integrated with app server (jboss) via servlets or similar such so that:
1. new ports are not required
2. easily makes use of app server frameworks
I am currently investigating several solutions:
1. WebServiceProxyServlet which just forwards requests to a
service implemented in something like Axis...this way additional ports
would only need to be seen by aforementioned servlet which would
listen on the jboss http port
2. integrate servlet with existing solutions by having it call code for
deciphering xml to objects, blah, blah, blah...although it looks like it
might be difficult to inject a servlet into this for something like Axis
3. take pojo objects generated by vendor wsdltojava and see if
webservicing them via pojo @WebService annotations would work
Ideally would just have a wsdltojava which generated servlet code or allowed plugging servlet code...rather than some standalone server like in axis....
Anyone done something similar to this or have any hints ?
