This article explains how you can use the built-in features of NetBeans 5.0 to create JAX-WS 2.0 services quickly. Once the project has been created, it can be rebuilt (and tested!) with one command. While newer versions of NetBeans include the ability to create JAX-RPC 1.X web services, the JAX-WS 2.0 code is still under development. The steps to create a web service with JAX-WS 2.0 have been simplified, and you can turn a web application project in NetBeans into a web service with very few steps.

The first two sections describe obtaining and setting up the NetBeans IDE and the JAX-WS code. Section 3 includes the information on creating a web service in web project along with the sample code used. The last section describes tips for using the project to create your own web service as well as instructions for creating a service starting from WSDL. Note that J2SE 5.0 is required for JAX-WS 2.0 applications.
