Programming WebLogic Web Services
Once you develop and assemble a WebLogic Web Service, you can use the Administration Console to deploy it on WebLogic Server. Additionally, you can use the Administration Console to perform standard WebLogic administration tasks on the deployed Web Services, such as undeploy, delete, view, and so on.
Typically, a Web Service is packaged as an EAR file. The EAR file consists of a WAR file that contains the
web-services.xml file and optional Java classes (such as the Java classes that implement a Web Service, handlers, and serialization classes for non-built-in data types) and a optional EJB JAR files that contain the stateless EJBs that implement the Web Service operations. The
servicegen Ant task always packages a Web Service into an EAR file.
The Administration Console identifies a Web Service by the contents of the WAR file. In other words, if the WAR file contained in an EAR file contains a
web-services.xml file, then the Administration Console lists the WAR file as a Web Service. The Administration Console uses the
icon to indicate that the WAR file is in fact a Web Service.
