I did a couple of tutorials on JAX-WS based web services using Eclipse, NetBeans on GlassFish and Tomcat. I added server runtime in the IDE and followed the tutorials and everything went on well
I call webservice wsdl like this....http://localhost:8080/MyFirstWS?wsdl
Are these web services deployed on the server? if so Where? I do not see 'MyFirstWS' as a folder under webapps folder of tomcat directory?
Do I have to war my application and deploy on the app server to see a context path?
When controlled from IDEs, these servers normally deploy apps somewhere under their temporary work directories (Tomcat: TOMCAT/work, Glassfish: GLASSFISH/domains/domain1/work).
For production deployment, you'll have to WAR it - like any other app.
