This document describes how to program WebLogic Web Services using Java API for XML-based Web Services (JAX-WS). JAX-WS is a standards-based API for coding, assembling, and deploying Java Web Services.

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 Introducing WebLogic Web Services. For information about migrating a JAX-RPC Web Service to JAX-WS, see Migrating JAX-RPC Web Services and Clients to JAX-WS.

The following table summarizes the contents of this guide.

For an overview of WebLogic Web Services, standards, samples, and related documentation, see Introducing WebLogic Web Services.

JAX-WS supports Web Services Security (WS-Security) 1.1 (except for WS-Secure Conversation). For information about WebLogic Web Service security, see Securing WebLogic Web Services.

A Note About Upgrading Existing WebLogic Web Services

There are no steps required to upgrade a 10.0 WebLogic Web Service to Release 10.3; you can redeploy a 10.0 Web Service to WebLogic Server Release 10.3 without making any changes or recompiling it.
