Creating a simple CXF SOAP client:


(Its a two step process: first GWT client side code makes an RPC call to GWT server side code and then GWT server side code makes a SOAP call to CXF services)



Step 1:


Generate client side stubs using Maven plug-in:


<plugin>

<groupId>org.apache.cxf</groupId>

<artifactId>cxf-codegen-plugin</artifactId>

<version>2.2.9</version>

<executions>

<execution>

<id>generate-sources</id>

<phase>generate-sources</phase>

<configuration>

<sourceRoot>target/generated/src/main/java</sourceRoot>

<wsdlOptions>

<wsdlOption>

<wsdl>src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/wsdl/MyWService.wsdl</wsdl>

</wsdlOption>

</wsdlOptions>

</configuration>

<goals>

<goal>wsdl2java</goal>

</goals>

</execution>

</executions>

</plugin>







Step 2:

If you want to assemble the code from target folder you can use:


<plugin>

<groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>

<artifactId>build-helper-maven-plugin</artifactId>

<executions>

<execution>

<id>add-source</id>

<phase>generate-sources</phase>

<goals>

<goal>add-source</goal>

</goals>

<configuration>

<sources>

<source>target/generated/src/main/java</source>

</sources>

</configuration>

</execution>

</executions>

</plugin>




Step 3: Create Service interface and ServiceAsync Interfaces:


public interface MyService extends RemoteService {
String callRemoteService(String name) throws IllegalArgumentException;

}




public interface MyServiceAsync {
void callRemoteService(String input, AsyncCallback<String> callback) throws IllegalArgumentException;

}



Step 4:

Create GWT client class that implements:

com.google.gwt.core.client.EntryPoint



This class also requires a field something like this:


private final MyServiceAsync myService = GWT.create(MyService.class);


In an appropriate location, we make a call to remote service:


myService.callRemoteService(textToServer,new AsyncCallback<String>()



Step 5:

Create server side class:

public class MyServiceImpl extends RemoteServiceServlet implements


MyService {...}


at some point in this class we make a SOAP call:


String callWS(String gwtString){
String response =null;
URL wsdlURL =null;
try{
wsdlURL = MyWImplService.WSDL_LOCATION;
}catch(Exception e){
System.err.println("Can not initialize the default wsdl ");
e.printStackTrace();
}

MyWImplService service =new MyWImplService(wsdlURL, SERVICE_NAME);
MyWService port = service.getMyWImplImplPort();
response = port.sayHi("SOAP test::"+gwtString);
return response;

}





(Please share your thoughts on this. It would be nice if we can have a single step process, that is, GWT client making direct SOAP call to CXF services)

MAKING A SUCCESSFUL REMOTE PROCEDURE CALL IN GWT
[DISCLAIMER: The content here does not reflect any orginational affiliation, these are hypothetical so far as legal issues are concernted. The code presented here is a part of executable GWT project]

STEP 1:
Create a Client side interface:

STEP 2:
Create Async interface on client side:




Note: If you are using Maven, make sure that you exlude <goal>generateAsync </goal>, otherwise it will create a duplicate class and that becomes a road block for maven builder.

STEP 3:

Create Server side implementation:



STEP 4:
Declare server side class in TestAdmin.gwt.xml (module xml file):


STEP 5:
Make a corresponding entry in web.xml:

STEP 6:

Make a call from client side code:
Variable declaration portion:


Calling portion:





This was simplest possible GWT RPC example.
