    deployment descriptor for @WebService

    ws ws Newbie



      I have successfully deployed a JAX-RPC Webservice at jboss 4.2.2 using EJB 3.0 and java 6. I am using the @WebService annotation and a web.xml entry for the corresponding Servlet. After deployment the wsdl file was generated automatically and correctly.


      The Bean I have written:

      @SOAPBinding(style = SOAPBinding.Style.RPC)
      public class HelloBean {
      public String echo(String input) {
      return "Hello " +input;

      The web.xml:

      <web-app ...>



      I will be using the class HelloBean in different war-archives: archive1.war, archive2.war, archive3.war, archive4.war. I want the Webservice to be deployed when I deploy archive1.war and archive2.war but not when I deploy archive3.war and archive4.war


      I want to solve the problem in the following way:

      First I want to remove the @WebService annotation.

      Second I want to use a deployment-descriptor in archive1.war and archive2.war to activate the Webservice. I will not use the deployment-descriptor in archive3.war and archive4.war.


      So my question is:

      How must the deployent-descriptor look like?

      Can I replace the @WebService annotation with a simple deployment descriptor? As I mentioned the wsdl-file should be generated by the application server. I have seen people providing a webservices.xml, a wsdl.xml file and a mapping.xml file, but I do not want to provide the wsdl.xml file and the mapping.xml file because providing these files is not necessary when I use the @WebService annotation. So I simply want a deployment descriptor that is equivalent to the @WevService annotation. Is this possible?
