I will also briefly show exception handling and validation support in relation to SOAP faults.
But first some words about the contract first part.
Step #2 In eclipse create a dynamic web project "Spring WS" with all default provided by eclipse.
Step #3 Finalize the contract (interface and message exchange structure).
Spring Web Services 2.0 Step by Step Publishing Web Service and client for the web service.
Here, we will crate a web service using contract first approach. You can find library jars in following locations: \spring-framework-3.1.0.
The focus area is how to configure and use Spring WS.
Details about how to create an XSD schema and JAXB classes are explained in this tutorial.
The WSDL file is generated from one or more XSD schemas and some few Spring configuration beans. The request element must end with Request and the response element must end with Response. The WSDL operation will be the element names except the Request/Response part.I have been using a convention for fault codes like this: "SOAP-ENV: Client.validation Error" Is it possible to make my Payload Validating Interceptor default to using this syntax instead of "SOAP-ENV: Client" ?Thanks, --Michael Payload Validating Interceptor problem I'm using spring-ws-1.0.1 and JBoss 4.0.5.Servlet Registration Bean; import org.springframework.context. Application Context; import org.springframework.context.annotation. Bean; import org.springframework.context.annotation. Message Dispatcher Servlet; import org.wsdl.wsdl11. We can do this by extending the package com.memorynotfound.server; import org.soap.server.endpoint.interceptor. We do not have to create a WSDL, this will be generated by Spring using the XSD schema and configuration (will be discussed later).For creating the schema for request and response consider a usecase in which we will send a complex object containing some order detail in request and service will return price and other information in response.Here is the generated WSDL operation: The server code isn’t aware of the WSDL.This is a different approach than for example CXF that generates an interface your implementation must implement. Now that the validation is working correct we can try to pimp our validation errors by changing the namespace, local Part and prefix. In the next section we show you how to mask or cloak this.
