The client-side stubs generated by JAX-WS (part of Metro) are pre-configured with the endpoint address specified in the WSDL. This allows you to invoke the endpoint directly without any additional configuration. However there may be a need to send the exact same Web service request to an endpoint hosted at a different address. For example, the stubs may be generated from a WSDL hosted in the test...

Stephen (from Sun) kick started the event by introducing the speakers. The event started with a...

This screencast consolidates all the entries together and shows how such an application can be developed and deployed using NetBeans Ruby IDE. Enjoy it here! The screencast is divided in...
