[wtp-dev] What's new in the Web Services wizards in this week's WTP 1.5 integration driver

Please note that we have added the following enhancements to the Web Services tools in this week's integration driver I200604062351.  Here are a summary of the changes:

- Brand new first page to the Web Services wizard and Web Services Client wizard.  Check them out, they are cool. [1]:
        - The first three pages of the Web Services Wizards have been combined into a new first page.  
        - The user can use the service and client sliders to select whether to develop, install, start and test.
        - The user can use the various links in the summary section to change server, Web service runtime, project and EAR.
- The user can optionally use the Web service -> Resource Management -> Merge generated skeleton preference to enable merging of the generated skeleton file with pre-existing skeleton implementation file [1].
- The Web Services Explorer's WSDL browser now shows WSDL files under different categories  [2].
- Support for nils and attributes in the Web Services Explorer [3].
- Added Web service -> Axis Emitter preference page [4].

You can find more details on the enhancements under:


Please keep the following in mind when using the new Web Services wizards in this week's WTP 1.5 integration driver:

- You need to use the Browse button to select the Service Implementation.  It's not automatically defaulted to the initial selection.  Failure to do that would result in  a ClassCastException when attempting to click Next or Finish.  [5].
-  You may need to resize the wizards to access all controls. This is especially important in order to access the client slider.  [6]
- Use the service and client sliders to control whether to develop, install and start the service and client.  They replaces the check boxes that used to be on the first page.
- There are cases when the Web service runtime, server, project and EAR are not defaulted properly.  Use the various summary links to ensure that the settings are correct [7].  These settings are currently not being displayed on the first page even after they are set [8].




We'll be addressing these problems in the next few days.  We'll also be updating the Web services tutorials for the M6 RC1 driver.
