What's New in This Release

Installation Instructions

The following applies to the JAX-WS standalone bundles. If you have installed JAX-WS as part of the JWSDP, then installation is complete.

Once the JAX-WS 2.0 Beta bundle is extracted, it needs to be installed on the Application Server. Make sure AS_HOME is set to the installation directory of the Application Server. You need to invoke ANT_HOME/bin/ant install command from the root directory of the extracted bundle to install JAX-WS 2.0 binaries on the Application Server. However this step is required if you intend to build and deploy a Web service on the Application Server.

If you intend to only invoke an already existing Web service, then alternatively you can use the wsimport and wsgen scripts in the bin directory of the JAX-WS 2.0 Beta bundle.

NOTE: JSR181-api.jar

Any EA/Beta version of JAX-WS may include a jsr181-api.jar file that is based upon anticipated changes to the 181 specification to align with JAX-WS. These anticipated changes maybe incorrect, may change and are not officially part of 181.

Any FCS version of JAX-WS will ship a 181 maintenance compliant jsr181-api.jar file.
