Section: Building Web Services with JAX-WS.

IDE used: Eclipse

I wish to create a client which can interact with a WebService. The code for both of them is listed below. The Android Emulator acts as my client if I'm right; please correct me.

1> I created a new Web Service Project named HelloService. No errors.

2> When it came to Client, I again created a new Web Service Project named SimpleClient.
Then a package named 'simple client', followed by a class named HelloClient. But I get errors. What wrong did I do? In the first place, was it right to create the Client as a Web Service Project.

3> Further, how do I link the Webservice with the Client? They both are two seperate Projects isn't? How can they be made to interact?


// Webservice
package helloservice.endpoint;
import javax.jws.WebService; // error
@WebService() // error
public class Hello {
private String message = new String("Hello, ");
public void Hello() {}
@WebMethod() // error
public String sayHello(String name) {
return message + name + ".";

// Client
package simpleclient;
import helloservice.endpoint.HelloService;
import helloservice.endpoint.Hello;
public class HelloClient {
static HelloService service;
public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
HelloClient client = new HelloClient();
} catch(Exception e) {
public void doTest(String[] args) {
try {
System.out.println("Retrieving the port from the following service: " + service);
Hello port = service.getHelloPort();
System.out.println("Invoking the sayHello operation on the port.");
String name;
if (args.length > 0) {
name = args[0];
} else {
name = "No Name";
String response = port.sayHello(name);
} catch(Exception e) {

The Client is usually a Java project.

Here is the tutorial which details on how to work with JAX-WS in MyEclipse IDE for your referral :

Hope this helps.

My objective is to use the Android phone to connect to a web service. So I've to test the project in the Android emulator, which means that I've to run the project as an android application. Thus I'll try opening both -- the client and the web service programs as android projects. Or, should I open the client alone as an android project. Then the next question is, both of them being separate projects, how do I get them to interact with each other.
