Develop a Web service using a stateless session enterprise bean

Set up a Web services development and unmanaged client execution environment.

To use an enterprise bean as the basis for a Web service implementation, follow these requirements...

These requirements are documented in the JAX-RPC specification available through Web services... Resources for learning. Create the artifacts that enable the enterprise bean to be a Web service and assemble the artifacts into the enterprise application as follows...

  1. Access an existing JAR file to be used as a Web service.Verify that the enterprise bean meets the requirements.

  2. Develop an EJB Service Endpoint Interface.The Service Endpoint Interface defines which enterprise bean methods should be made available as a Web service.

  3. Develop a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) file.

  4. Develop Web services deployment descriptor templates from an EJB implementation.

  5. Assemble a Web services-enabled JAR file.

  6. Configure the webservices.xml deployment descriptor.

  7. Configure the ibm-webservices-bnd.xmi deployment descriptor.

  8. Assemble a Web services-enabled EAR file.

  9. Enable the EAR file. When the EAR file contains EJB modules, it must have the Web services endpoint Web archive (WAR) file added with the endptEnabler tool before it is deployed.

  10. Deploy the EAR file into WAS.
