Web Services

Web Services Wizard settings are saved

    Previous to WTP 3.1, many text entry fields did not persist previously entered/selected values. New in WTP 3.1 M6, the text entry fields are editable combo boxes- upon completion of the wizards, values from previous invocations are persisted and can be selected again. Further, values in Service definition/implementation fields are filtered according to the selected Web service or Client type.

    Web Services Client wizard

    The ANT import wizard has been improved to allow the user to import ANT files specific to the Web service runtime Web service type they are interested in. This allows for better organization of files related to Web services ANT, and gets rid of the requirement to update the wsgen file according to the Web service type they are interested in. Further an extension point has been added to allow adopters to extend the wizard, adding their own Web service runtimes and Web service types.

Service definition extension point added so adopters can provide a way to locate workspace artifacts

    A new service definition locator extension point has been added to allow adopter extensions to register their own IFile to URI converter to 'customize' how to look up and resolve files.
