Title basically says it all, but I'm looking for suggestions for the best way to have a message driven bean receive a message then process it and call an external web service with the results. This seems like a straightforward problem to solve but I keep getting stuck in the deployment to weblogic when I do it my way so I'm looking for new ideas.
Basically, I have an MDB that gets deployed to WL and receives messages just fine. Also, I have a standalone class, that runs from the command line or IDE, that can send messages to the external web service. But when I try to bring the code from the standalone class into the MDB and get it deployed, I can't get all the dependencies to resolve.
So, is there a proper way to do this? Which wizard should I be using to get Workshop to create web service client so that I can use it in my MDB project? Any suggestions to tutorials?
I'm using Weblogic 10.3 and the Workshop that comes along with that.
