I have setup the latest jwsdp2.0 on my machine.I didn't use the web container option when asked during installation.Can I use WSAD or RAD instead for trying out examples on webservices?Would be thankful if you could provide suggestions regarding the same.
If I were you, I will use the server that the JWSDP mentions; for example, the Sun Java Server.
If you will use other servers, just remember to use the corresponding tools for those servers, e.g. deployment tools, ANT, etc.
For security, at least for JWSDP 1.6, you cannot use those provided XWSS deployment descriptors into RAD/WSAD, because RAD/WSAD uses its own proprietary descriptors. Moreover, there are some topics that are not supported yet by RAD/WSAD/Websphere 6 Server. E.g., RAD is unable to create a stand-alone web service security client.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
