Web Service With Eclipse
The name for this session almost reads like a run on sentence: Create, Test, and Consume Web Services with the Eclipse Web Tools Project. This session covered the new features in the Eclipse Web Tools Project. The audience was shown how to use the multiple web tools wizards in Eclipse to create, test, and consume web services. Eclipse comes with a Web Service Explorer which can be used to test a web service.. The speaker did make it seem easy but I feel that their might not be enough online documentation.
One note about this session. I was surprised that this speaker, speaking on the subject of web services and SOAP, did now know or heard of REST. More than anything this speaks to the amount of technology that a typical Java developer needs to be familiar. A typical J2EE developer needs to be well versed in so many underlying technologies and web services is a example of this.
