Web Services

Create Web service by selecting Java bean in Java project

    You are now able to create bottom-up Java Web service by selecting Java bean in a Java project. The Web service would be created in a Web project and the Web project and EAR (if any is required) would have the proper J2EE dependency to the Java project.

Launch Web Services Explorer only available in J2EE perspective

    The Launch Web Services Explorer menu action in the product tool bar is now only available in the J2EE perspective rather than in all the perspectives. As always, the Test with Web Services Explorer context menu is available on WSDL files to bring up the WSDL page of the Web Services Explorer.

Web services runtime extenders can veto project, EAR and server selection

    The extenders to the Web services runtime extension can now veto the project, EAR and server selection on the first page of the Web services wizard. Please refer to the New Help for Old Friends III wiki for more details.

WSDL

Able to open WSDL files not located in current workspace

    Users are now able to use the WSDL editor to open WSDL files not located in the current workspace. This includes remote WSDL files not located in the current file system.
