When you create Web services, a system process in the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio that runs in the background collects information about the exposed implementation beans and service endpoint interfaces (SEI). The tools of the Developer Studio, display the collected information in a JAX-WS Web Services node available in the Project Explorer view.
More information about SEIs: Service Endpoint Interface
The JAX-WS Web Services node is available only in Enterprise Java Bean Projects 3.0 and Dynamic Web Projects 2.5. The node offers a central access point to the Web service's artifacts in a project. It displays all implementation beans and Java interfaces that have the standard Web service's annotations and attributes in their source code.
In the JAX-WS Web Services node, the system shows the Web services and the SEIs under separate folders. You can use the JAX-WS Web Services node to find Web services in a single location instead of searching for them in the project.
The JAX-WS Web Services node enables you to open a Web service, a Web service method, or an SEI. The system opens the containing implementation bean and highlights the artifact you want to show. From the JAX-WS Web Services node, you can also navigate to the Web service implementation bean located in the Deployment Descriptor node.
Opening Objects from the JAX-WS Web Services Node
In the Project Explorer view of the Java EE perspective, expand the project, and then choose JAX-WS Web Services .
Depending on the object you want to open, proceed as follows:
Open a Web service.
Under the Web Services folder, you can browse the Web services, which you created in the project. You can also browse the SEIs, with which you exposed the Web service.
Open an SEI.
Under the Service Endpoint Interfaces folder, you can open the following artifacts:
Under the Service Endpoint Interfaces folder are listed the SEIs, which you used to expose the Web service.
Under the SEI node, you can browse the SEI's methods.
Input or output parameters
Under each SEI method, you can browse its input or output parameters.
Right click an object in the node, and then choose Open .
The system opens in a window the implementation bean or the SEI of the Web service and highlights the opened artifact.
For more information about editing the properties of the artifacts, proceed with the task below.
Navigating to Web Service Implementations in the Deployment Descriptor node
In the Project Explorer view, expand the project and then choose JAX-WS Web Services .
From the Web Services folders , choose a Web service.
Right click the node, and then choose Show in EJB area .
The system navigates you to the implementation bean of the Web service located in the Deployment Descriptor node of the project.
