Do I really need WTP for JAX-WS JBossWS WebServices? Or is JBossTools enough? [message #222939] Thu, 23 October 2008 03:00 Go to next message

Originally WTP was designed to ease the handling of creation of web services.
However the developer has still to setup WTP for a specific environment (Application Server,
and WS technology). As a first example Apache Tomcat and Axis were implemented.

JBossWS as a JAX-WS implementation does not use the structures of WTP.

When I go to
Preferences->Web Services->Server and Runtime

I cannot set "JBossWS" as runtime.

Instead JBoss offers their own plugin: JBossTools (formerly JBossIDE).

So for what do I need WTP when I use JBossWS web services?

What can I do with WTP what I cannot with JBossTools?

JBoss Tools is based on WTP and provides some additional function for some
JBoss product and jboss technology just like JBossWS, Seam, JBPM etc, so
I think if you get JBoss Tools installed and worked, you will get all
function that WTP and JBoss tools can do. If you want to use JBossWS as
web service runtime, you have to install the JBoss Tools plugins.

BTW, WTP is a must dependency for JBoss Tools.

When I did this, I resorted to book published in PDF form from Kent
Tong, Essential JSF, Facelets & JBoss Seam. Chapter 8 of that book walks
you through setting up JBoss and Seam. It worked afterward, too.
