JSR 181: simplifying Web Services

This may be self-serving, but in case this is useful to readers of Code to Joy...

Here is an article on JSR 181, Metadata for Web Services. (I'm the author.)

The nano-summary:

  • There are several JSRs within JAX-RPC and JAX-WS. The article surveys the landscape, and gives the context for JSR 181.
  • JSR 181 acts as a facade pattern for JAX-WS: an easy interface for common WS tasks.
  • With the use of annotations, JAX-WS joins EJB, Seam and Guice in the rising tide against XML configuration.
  • Simple examples are provided, requiring only Java 6 and Ant 1.6.x
