Hi there,

I am using IBM RAD to generate Webservices. My dilemma is should I start with WSDL definition and generate Binding Classess or go ahead and start with Java Classes and expose them as Webservices by generating WSDL, Stub etc.

It seems either approach is Ok except that I am more comfortable with Java Code than WSDL nuances

Java code to WSDL is nice approach.
In projects, we are likey to have a jave code which we need to expose as webservice

"Nice" until you run into some of the drawbacks.

Have you read this yet: Why Contract First?

Ultimately you have to ask yourself - are you designing a "Java" service or a SOAP web service (and implementing it in Java).

I am convinced with Contract First as opposed to Contract Last. Spring argument is very good one.

Hi Peer,

Thanks a lot.
I also had the same problem that how to start the webservice development work either from java class or from wsdl. But after read your given url (Chapter 2. Why Contract First?), now I am confirm that we should start from wsdl.

Thanks again.

Hi,
I also feel good to write the web services from CONTRACT as first and it is easy to specify the requiremnts directly into the XSD's.

Thanks,
