In this chapter, we explored NetBeans' support for Web Service development,
including how to expose a POJO's methods as web services and how NetBeans
automatically adds the required annotations to our web services.
We covered how NetBeans aids us in creating web service clients by generating most
of the required boilerplate code, leaving us to simply initialize any parameters to be
passed to our web service's operations.
Additionally we covered how to expose EJB methods as web service operations, and
how NetBeans supports and makes it easy to expose both new and existing EJBs as
Finally, we saw how NetBeans can help us implement a web service from an
existing WSDL file, located either on our local file system or deployed on a server,
by generating method stubs from said WSDL.
