various .xml files

Post by vini_srcna » Sat Sep 17, 2016 3:36 am

Hi, I need help in understanding the various xml files involved while deploying java applications.

web.xml (also called deployment descriptor), ejb-jar.xml, webservices.xml, jax-ws.xml, ibm-web-ext.xml, ibm-web-bnd.xml.

How can we know what goes in which file ?. For ex, security, handlers, mtom etc?.

I'm newbie to java and web services area. Please help me to understand this. Thanks.

Hi,

These are all deployment descriptors:

web.xml is used for web-applications
ejb-jar.xml is used for ejb-applications
webservices.xml is used for web-services
sun-jax-ws.xml is used for web-services, but is a deployment descriptor for Metro (https://metro.java.net/)
ibm-web-ext.xml, ibm-web-bnd.xml are used for web-applications, but are propriety deployment descriptors for IBM.
How can we know what goes in which file ?. For ex, security, handlers, mtom etc?.
From the different specifications (JSRs), from the different providers (IBM, Glassfish etc.).
I'm newbie to java and web services area. Please help me to understand this. Thanks.
I must warn you: the Web Services certification is one of the most difficult exams to pass. I requires good (more than basic) knowlegde of different EE areas: Web Components, Enterprise Java Beans, EE-security.

Regards,
Frits
