    Consuming WSDL Web Services in JBoss Portal

    Amol Desai Newbie

      Hello there,

      1. Can JBoss Portal consume WSDL web services? how? any samples?
      2. What are the steps to get it working. Assume, I just have base JBoss Portal installed and a provider WSDL.
      3. Which JBossWS should I download? jbossws-native?

      Any help on available online resources is appreciated.
      Thanks for your help.

          Portal does not consume web services per se (apart from WSRP that is)... Your portlets do. Anything you want to do with respect to web services has to be done in the context of portlets as Portal is only an environment to manage portlets. What is your use case?

          A portlet is a specialized web application. Almost anything you can do with a web application you can do with a portlet. In particular, this includes accessing a remote web services. Portal forums won't help you there as it's not a Portal topic, rather a web service development topic. In essence, you would need to create a web service client that could be accessed via your portlet and possibly interacted with.

          JBossWS is bundled with JBoss AS. If you run JBoss Portal, JBoss WS is already installed on your application server.

            Thanks for the answers, Chris. Yes, I meant to say, Portlets and not Portal. My bad!
