Hello there,

I´m having trouble to understand how apt works. I´ve read that it is a java SE tool, that makes it an external tool from JAX-WS? What´s the difference between apt and wsgen?


Thanks in advance.

apt generates the portable artifacts used in JAX-WS services when SEI source code is available (i.e. for *.java file)

wsgen generates JAX-WS portable artifacts when SEI source code is NOT available (i.e. for *.class file)
