After creating a successful environment for web services in Eclipse, it’s time to take things to another level by writing a service that actually does something. Here, we create a web service (still a simple one) which takes the salaries of employees, including allowances, and calculates their taxes. The client sends an XML document and receives the same document back except the taxes are now filled in. Later in our SOA course, we’ll see how these documents can be encrypted and signed to ensure integrity and privacy. Anyway, let’s get on with the web service.
After working for almost a week with outdated and severely complicated yet unhelpful tutorials for web services using Eclipse (Europa), I decided to put together a simple, step-by-step, to-the-point tutorial on how to use a simple, small web service. It’s mostly a screencast with some explanations.
