1 Introduction

This chapter provides a summary table of getting started topics for software developers who program WebLogic Web services using Java API for XML-based RPC (JAX-RPC).

JAX-RPC is a specification that defines the Java APIs for making XML-based remote procedure calls (RPC). In particular, these APIs are used to invoke and get a response from a Web service using SOAP 1.1, and XML-based protocol for exchange of information in a decentralized and distributed environment. For more information, see http://java.net/projects/jax-rpc/.

Note:

JAX-WS is designed to take the place of JAX-RPC in Web services and Web applications. To compare the features that are supported for JAX-WS and JAX-RPC, see "How Do I Choose Between JAX-WS and JAX-RPC?" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Introducing WebLogic Web Services for Oracle WebLogic Server.
