Section 10.2. JBoss 4.x and Web Services


10.2. JBoss 4.x and Web Services

In previous versions of JBoss (pre 4.x), developers deployed Web Services by using a JBoss-specific tool called JBoss.NET (not to be confused with Microsoft .NET). Although JBoss.Net worked well and provided a highly automated way to create Web Services on JBoss, it was proprietary technology. In JBoss 4.x, JBoss.Net is deprecated in favor of JBossWS, JBoss's new J2EE 1.4-compliant Web Service implementation. JBossWS is based on Apache Axis (http://ws.apache.org/axis) and uses J2EE standard deployment descriptors and technologies.

JBoss and Web Services Issues

Bugs are a fact of life, and even though JBoss is an excellent product, JBoss 4.0.0 and 4.0.1 have problems deploying Web Services that use Custom Data types. Specifically, these versions of JBoss can't find serializers that convert custom data types between Java and WSDL. So you can't access Web Services that use Custom Data types with JBoss 4.0.0 and 4.0.1. This problem is fixed in JBoss 4.0.1sp1, so as long you use JBoss 4.0.1sp1 or later, everything will work properly.
