    Seam 2.0, Eclipse IDE - Problem creating Webservices

    Enrico Stahn Newbie

      Hi guys,

      I try to create a simple webservice without success. I hope someone can point me to a solution. I created a seam project with Eclipse IDE (JBoss Tools) which work like a charm. I can drag&drop JSF components into pages, deploy them via Eclipse [url=http://in.relation.to/3388.lace][1][/url] and so on.

      The webservice functionality should be tested with the following classes, inspired by the seambay example and this Howto [url=http://www.mail-archive.com/jboss-user@lists.jboss.org/msg58851.html][2][/url//www.mail-archive.com/jboss-user@lists.jboss.org/msg58851.html][2][/url].

      package org.domain.Test.entity;
      import javax.jws.WebService;
      public interface TestServiceRemote {
       boolean login(String username, String password);
       boolean logout();

      package de.ventasoft.services.Test.entity;
      import javax.ejb.Stateless;
      import javax.jws.WebMethod;
      import javax.jws.WebService;
      @WebService(name = "TestService", serviceName = "TestService")
      public class TestService implements TestServiceRemote {
       public boolean login(String username, String password) {
       return true;
       public boolean logout() {
       return true;

      The classes are located in src/model/.... I put the standard-jaxws-endpoint-config.xml in every seam-META-INF directory i could found. The deployment runs without any errors but unfortunately nothings happens. There is also no endpoint registered at http://localhost:8080/jbossws/services.

      Any advice how to do this would be highly appreciated.

          I got it working on 2.0.0.CR1.

          The interface should have @Remote instead of @WebService

          standard-jaxws-endpoint-config.xml should be in your deployed
          proj.ear/proj.jar/META-INF directory.

          That should do it.

            Thanks, looks like the deployment will try to publish the webservice. Is it possible to do the same with an war file?

            I get the following result with JBoss AS 4.2.2.GA and JBoss Seam 2.0.0.GA:

            org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentInfo@e66bd1cd { url=file:/C:/Users/stahn/Desktop/Downloads/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/default/deploy/SoapTest4-ear.ear/ }

            Any hints on that?
