A step by step Soap with Attachment (SwA) example
In this example you will learn how to implement a SEI web service with only one operation.
This operation receives an attached text file and returns another attached text file.
JBossWS provides support for WS-I Attachment Profile 1.0, JBossWS4EE does not. Here we will define a rpc/literal web service that JBossWS4EE is supporting. Note that using the Sun's JWSDP1.5 JAX-RPC & SAAJ implementation will throw an exception as literal attachment is not supported yet.
Today, with the lack of tools, the process is not very friendly. JBoss team will fill the gap soon, but if you need to do it right now, you should find enough information in this page.
For the impatients
install the Sun's JWSDP
write the service implementation + interface
write webservice.xml + web.xml
write config.xml + generate a wsdl with the jwsdp
modify the wsdl
generate the jaxrpc-mapping.xml
package & deploy your service
write and run your client
You will need to provide jars from the Sun's JWSDP 1.5 and JBossAS see Set up your environment.

Running the Example
This example is part of the JBoss AS testsuite (_jboss-4.0_home_/testsuite/src/main/org/jboss/test/webservice/attachmentstepbystep).
To run the webservice's testsuite, launch the all configuration and enter
build.bat (or .sh) test -Dnojars=true -Dtest=webservice
