    JBossWS vs Glassfish, do we a 'Tester' ?

    ingimar erlingsson Newbie


      Using JBoss frequently, checked out the features for WS
      in Glassfish and saw that they have this Tester-feature in the AS.
      This gives me the opportunity to test the WS without writing a client.

      Does JBoss have something similar ?

      I am running JBoss 4.2.1 now, do I need any addition to that
      regarding WS ? And I am running mysql as my rdbms.

      regards, i

          JBoss currently lacks something similar to the Glassfish ws Tester, however we're working on this. For further information, take a look at http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=121127
          Feel free to comment!

          In the meantime you might evaluate Wise http://www.javalinuxlabs.org/wise/, a tool to test ws through a web interface almost like the Glassfish tester.

            have a look at soapUI (http://www.soapui.org), which is an extremely popular free open-source desktop app for invoking, testing and simulating any web-service. It even has built-in support for the jbossws wsconsume toolset and there are plugins for eclipse, netbeans and IDEA..

            Previously there was also a dedicated plug-in for JBossIDE, put it has not yet made it into the new JBoss Tools stack..

            Good Luck!

                Hello Alessio,

                Trying the WISE.
                Using JBoss 4.2.1.
                Did not install JBossWS though - is that necessary ?

                When surfing to:

                I get the following error in the JBoss-console:

                When using 'MySQL Administrator' and going to 'Server Connection'
                Then I am able to see all the connection made in my mysql-ds.xml within JBoss but not the connection in 'wise-ds.xml'

                I am not able to register a new user ....

                I am running on a windows vista at the moment, that is
                my working machine - the installation-routine for JBossWS seems
                a bit complicated.

                Could you give me further advice.

                regards, i

                  My mistake with Wise, sorry for that.
                  changed the login in 'wise-ds.xml' and able to create a new user and to log in ( shame that I cannot erase the last post )

                  Adding a WebService which I have tried out in Glassfish:
                  It is this small one:

                  public class ProjectManagerWs {
                   public String version() {
                   return "ProjectManager version 0.1";

                  Surfing to:

                  I am able to see the WSDL.

                  But adding it to wise and clicking the link which I have created gives me the following error:

                  16:47:48,421 INFO [WSDLManagerBean] *** Beginning conversation, savedWsdl = null
                  16:47:48,426 ERROR [WSDLManagerBean] An unexpected exception occurred while selecting the wsdl.
                  java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jboss/wsf/spi/tools/WSContractConsumer
                   at it.javalinux.wise.seam.actions.WSDLManagerBean.selectWsdl(WSDLManagerBean.java:116)
                   at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)

                  Am I forgetting something ?
                  the mysql says:
                  mysql> select * from savedwsdl;
                  | idSavedWSDL | wsdlLink | wsdlText | savingDate | idUserInformation |
                  | 2 | | tt | 2007-10-21 | 3 |

                    I'm sorry, this is not the right forum for Wise issues. Please post your requests for assistance (including any follow-up to this thread) here:
                    Anyway, you need of course to upgrade the JBossWS that ships with JBoss 4.2.1 and this is most likely the cause of your problem.
