    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 javax.xml.ws.WebServiceRef;
    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.
