Hi friends,

I am wondering that web services API has been integrated into Java SE since Java SE 6 right?
If so, does that mean I am able to consume/expose web services without additional JARs as long as JRE/JDK installed on my computer?

thanks in advance.

Yes, but you should not rely on the built-in version of JAX-WS. For starters, it's generally not the latest version, it doesn't have a lot of the stuff that the Metro library offers (like support for WS-Security and other WS-* standards), and it includes only a bare-bones HTTP server that is not appropriate for serving production-grade WS.

Thanks for your reply. So should I rely on the API comes with Java EE? I'm new to Metro.

If you're using JEE, then that comes with a JAX-WS implementation. Otherwise, Metro is the standalone version that can be used where the full JEE stack is not available, e.g. in a servlet container like Tomcat.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
