Web Services

Web services pop-ups now takes custom types

    Adopters of the Web services creation framework can now use the same Web services pop-ups provided by the framework to process their custom types. They just need to provide an IAdapterFactory that adapts that custom type to IFile or String and register the factory with the Platform's AdapterManager (or extends the org.eclipse.core.runtime.adapters extension). The Web services pop-ups that currently take advantage of this look up mechanism are:
    • Web service wizard,
    • Web service client wizard, and
    • Test with Web Services Explorer
    • .
    Please note that there might be sematic changes post WTP 2.0 to change the type of object the custom type should be adapted to.
