I'm buried in so much unknown territory I'm not sure where to start.

I'm building a Weblogic9.2 hosted Web Services server using WST 1.5.

I guess the main problem is that I can't find any documentation or example
projects that deal with using Weblogic for Dynamic Web Projects using WST.
Is there such a thing and I'm just missing it? Helpful pointers would be
greatly appreciated.

For now I'm developing my application on my workstation with a locally
running Weblogic server instance. But eventually I'll have to deploy my
application to a production server. What eclipse WST generated artifact
(ear, war, jar, etc) do I deploy and how? Since WST is doing everything
automatically for me locally, I don't know exactly what is getting
deployed or how.

Along the same lines, another thing that is confusing me is the
<WSProject>EAR project that gets generated automatically. My application
will use an application scoped JDBC datasource, and I'm thinking that this
will require that I write a weblogic-application.xml file and include it
in this automatically generated project - right? This seems to mean that I
will have to create a source code repository for this autogenerated
project. If so, I'm not sure that I like this. I'll have to create two
source code repositories for what is essentially one project.

Well, I'm sure there are lots of other things I don't understand, but I'll
pause for now. Maybe if I get some helpful feedback (like docs or examples
pointers) I'll be able to figure things out on my own.

Thanks,
Chuck

Chuck,

You should take a look BEA's Workshop for Weblogic 9.2 [1] which is
built on top of WTP 1.0 and has support for java 5 annotation-based
authoring of web services. You can find information about how to author
web services using Workshop in BEA's edocs [2].

Hope this helps.

Konstantin,

A couple of things:

First, the development for this application is pretty much complete, using
Eclipse/WTP, but the initial work was done using Tomcat. Now the desire is
to move it from Tomcat to Weblogic 9.2. To move all my development to
another IDE might be quite a bit of work as it is a little late in the
game. Do you think?

Secondly, I'm a little concerned with the implication of your
recommendation. Is the implied message that WTP's Web Services development
capability somewhat broken (possibly with regard to Weblogic 9.2
deployment)?

It certainly was not my intention to imply this. I am not aware of any
specific problems with WTP's Web Services support in general or as it
relates to WebLogic 9.2. The reason that I suggested Workshop is that
you will find Workshop's model for developing web services easier to
use. You use java 5 annotations to describe your web service. The
backend code is generated at build and publish time. Workshop also helps
you with weblogic-specific descriptors such as weblogic-application.xml.
You will also be able to find help in BEA's edocs and various
BEA-specific support forums.

If moving to Workshop is not an option for you at this time, I will have
to defer to someone else on this news group who is more familiar with
WTP Web Services support to answer your questions.
