This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am in the process of creating top down JAX-WS services using WSDL. I use RAD to achieve this. RAD creates a WebService project with web.xml and other ibm related configuration. In this service implementation class, I would like to invoke another business object layer which invokes DAO and so forth. I have my projects organized to have BO and DAO layer which are bound using Spring DI. When I put things together with my web service implementation class, I am wondering how to load Spring application context so that my BO layer is injected with proper DAO objects. I have done this using CXF/Spring in which the context config location is configured in web.xml. Here, I'm not using CXF.
I can have a factory to load the application context using ClassPathXMLApplicationContext.
I would like to know some suggestions and best practices on this.
I am in a similar situation. I have a web service created by using "Create Web Service" in RAD, but if I try to include get/sets for my dao so spring can inject it, the web service doesn't generate. I am also unclear how to make the web service a spring managed class. Seems like I need an interceptor or filter between the web service and the caller, but I am not sure how to accomplish that.
