This content is part of the series:Developing web services, Part 1 Stay tuned for additional content in this series. Before you start This tutorial is for developers who build applications that use web services with different approach. By using web services, your application can publish its function or message to the rest of the world. Part 1 starts simply, explaining the basic concepts behind web services and showing you how to develop web service with Axis2 using Different Approach Code First and Contract First.
In order to create a Web service, you will need some tools. At a minimum, you will need some type of SOAP processing engine to parse the messages that are received and to call the functions or methods that the message indicates. Many products are on the market that provides this processing. The goal of every Web services development tool is to build a bridge between the SOAP processor and the business logic that is running on the server.
Normally, this business logic is kept separate from the SOAP processing logic. Objectives In this tutorial, you will learn how to: Download and install the web servers Tomcat , if it is not already installed, and make minor additions to it to successfully implement the given examples. Download and install Axis2 engine to generate the Stubs as well as Service skeleton.
Download and install Axis2 runtime environment into Tomcat for developing and deploying web service Credit Card Validation and Product Catalog. Prerequisites This tutorial assumes familiarity with some basic concepts of the Eclipse IDE, and basic understanding of web service architecture. What is a web service?
A web service is a network accessible interface to application functionality, built using standard Internet technologies. In these, the application services—the mechanisms for publishing, managing, searching, and retrieving content—are accessed through the use of standard protocols and data formats: HTTP and HTML.
Client applications web browsers that understand these standards can interact with the application services to perform tasks like ordering books, sending greeting cards, or reading news.
Web services allow for cross-platform interoperability in a way that makes the platform irrelevant. Interoperability is one of the key benefits gained from implementing web services. Java and Microsoft Windows-based solutions have typically been difficult to integrate, but a web services layer between application and client can greatly remove friction. Benefits of web service The web service, a very well known open technology standard provides a number of benefits as listed below: Increase competition among vendors, resulting in lower product costs.
Ease transition from one product to another, resulting in lower training costs. Increase the ability for parties to interoperate, resulting in lower maintenance costs. Ensure a greater degree of adoption and longevity for a standard. A large degree of usage from the vendors and the users leads to a higher degree of acceptance. How do organizations move into web service There are three main ways in which an organization can move into Web Services.
These are as follows: Creating a new web service from scratch Contract First : The developer creates the functionalities of the services as well as preparing a document to describe those services. Exposing an existing functionality through a web service Code First : Here, the functionalities of the service already exist.
Only the service description needs to be implemented. Integrating web services from other vendors or business partners Meet in the Middle : There are instances where using a service implemented by another is more feasible than building from scratch. The real utility of the Web Service concept is present in the second and the third methods, which leads to other Web Services and applications that can be used in existing applications.
Code first approach versus contract first approach Code first Bottom Up approach allows you to reuse your investment by exposing your existing application. Credit Card System is an existing Application with Proven business value. The implementation class already exists, all that is needed is to create a WSDL and expose the class as web service.
Then you build the endpoint interface and finally the implementation class. Axis2 architecture Axis2 is built upon a modular architecture that consists of core modules and non-core modules. Every message coming into the system has to be transformed into a SOAP message before it is handed over to the core engine. But at the transport level, it will be converted into a SOAP message. When Axis2 was designed, the following key rules were incorporated into the architecture to achieve a highly flexible and extensible SOAP processing engine: Separation of logic and state to provide a stateless processing mechanism.
This is because web services are stateless. A single information model in order to enable the system to suspend and resume. Ability to extend support to newer web service specifications with minimal changes made to the core architecture.
This engine accepts SOAP messages, parses them, and calls the appropriate methods and functions in the web service. At this level of detail, Axis is just like every other web services engine. The uniqueness of this product, and every other product, lies in how a developer would go about organizing the processing so that the message can be responded to properly.
Configuration and development Example I — Credit card validation web service using AXIS2 This is a simple Credit Card Validation web service with Code First Approach, where user will input the 16 digit credit card number to validate it and also to find out the credit card vendor. To setup and run this example one need to know few things given below: Eclipse IDE: An integrated development environment IDE is an all-in-one tool for writing, editing, compiling, and running computer programs.
And Eclipse provides an excellent integrated development environment. You can find the latest release of eclipse in www. Tomcat web server 5. It is the official reference implementation for both the servlet and JSP specifications. Axis2: Binary Distribution : An Axis2 binary distribution consists of all the relevant third-party libraries, a set of samples, and the Axis2 runtime.
Installing a binary distribution involves extracting ZIP archive files into a desired location. Once we download and extract the binary distribution, then we will be able to see a set of subdirectories inside it bin, lib, samples, repository, webapp. We can deploy the Axis2 WAR file into an application server, and check whether it works by typing the server address in a browser.
Each Axis2 release consists of four main release artifacts or distributions: Binary distribution.
Developing Web Services with Apache CXF and Axis2
Gogul Client 1 The database cluster is hardly scalable. Then the errors will be gone. Next, update the CodeGenerator class: Then it will set it to 03 automatically. To do that, create a bindings. Modify the StatProducerImpl class in the producer project: PrivateKeyEntry Certificate chain length: Refresh the project and you should have some files in the com. Frequently asked questions about web services Here only the filename client.
