my first design of any webservice, 2) create a new service by selecting
the "web service" wizard, 3) make any changes and future enhancements by

Web Services > Resource Management. The option is called "Merge generated
skeleton file". With this enabled, the New Web Service wizard will try to
preserve and merge your existing changes into the new skeleton that it

Hope this helps.
