Programming Java EE 6 SOAP Web Services with JAX-WS - JBoss / Eclipse Training

Quick Enroll

Course#: WA2217
Courseware: Available for sale

This course will you teach you how to develop Web Service provider and consumer applications for the JBoss platform. It will teach you the theory behind XML schema, WSDL and SOAP. It will proceed to teach you various Java specifications that cover Web Services development (such as JAX-WS and JAXB).

Advanced topics such as WS-Security, WS-Addressing, WS-ReliableMessaging and WS-Trust are also covered.

The technologies in this course are part of the Java EE 6 specification.  This is supported by JBoss Application Server 7.x and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.x so this course is appropriate if you are using either of those platforms.



This class combines lecture with hands-on experience, and open ended discussion that will help the developer quickly understand how to program SOAP web service applications using Java EE 6. Upon completion of the course, students will:

  • Confidently design XML schema and WSDL.
  • Tell the difference between different SOAP styles (document literal, RPC literal etc.)
  • Implement a Web Service using Eclipse and JBoss.
  • Write a Web Services client using standard Java specifications.
  • Secure web services.
  • Learn the interoperability issues especially with the .NET platform.
  • Utilize advanced web service features for reliable messaging and attachments


  • XML schema design
  • JAXB
  • JAX-WS
  • SOAP
  • WSDL
  • JAXB and JAX-WS annotations
  • WS-Security
  • Interoperability issues
  • WS-Addressing
  • WS-ReliableMessaging
  • WS-Trust and WS-Federation



Java EE developers who will like to learn about how to build a SOAP Web Services based solution. This class covers many advanced topics that will help them build a solution appropriate for a large business.



Participants should already have an understanding of Java programming. For those that require Java experience before this course the following course is suggested:
