Eclipse Web Tools Platform Incubator - New and Noteworthy
Apache CXF Web Service creation using ANT tasks
Create Web services with the Apache CXF runtime without using the WTP Web services wizard. Create Ant tasks that can be run from within the Eclipse IDE or from the command line. Supports all scenarios currently available in the WTP Web services wizards: Bottom up, top down, and client.
JAX-WS Handler Support
Wizard based support for creating logical and protocol JAX-WS handlers. JAX-WS handlers are message interceptors that may be used to carry out additional processing on inbound and outbound messages. Protocol handlers are specific to a protocol (e.g. SOAP) and they may access or change protocol specific aspects of a message while logical handlers are protocol agnostic and may only act on the message payload.
