Add Axis2 facet

Jump to: navigation, search

To develop an Axis2 Web service or client, the Axis2 JARs need to be available to the Web project that will contain the Web service or client. These jars can be copied from the Axis2 Web service runtime location during the wizard (similar to Axis 1.x), or they can be installed into the Web project through a new Axis2 facet. A benefit of using a facet is it affords users the option of equipping a project for development of Axis2 components without necessarily having to use the Web service wizards.

When the user create a Web project, they could select to install the Axis2 facet. During the install of the Axis2 facet, the Axis2 JARs required during runtime would be copied to the Web project's WebContent/WEB-INF/lib directory.
