Creating EclipseLink DBWS Services using the DBWSBuilder utility

The EclipseLink DBWS design-time utility DBWSBuilder is a Java application that processes an EclipseLink DBWS builder XML file to produce a deployable archive (typically a .war file) containing all the required deployment artifacts (WSDL, .xsd schema, web.xml, etc.) for a JAX-WS 2.0 compliant Web Service. There are script files provided for invoking DBWSBuilder. They are located in the <ECLIPSELINK_HOME>\utils\dbws directory. The scripts ending in .cmd are for Windows use while those that end with .sh are for all other operating systems. Before running the dbwsbuilder.cmd script, please ensure that the following environment variables in the <ECLIPSELINK_HOME>\utils\dbws\setenv.cmd (or setenv.sh file) are set:

  • JAVA_HOME
  • DRIVER_CLASSPATH
DBWSBuilder usage - [] indicates optional argument:
prompt > dbwsbuilder.cmd  -builderFile {path_to_dbws_builder.xml} -stageDir  {path_to_stageDir} -packageAs[:archive_flag - archive, noArchive, ignore] {packager} [additional args]
Available packagers:
    -packageAs:[default=not supported] jdev
    -packageAs:[default=archive] javase [jarFilename]
    -packageAs:[default=archive] wls [warFilename] [warFilename]
    -packageAs:[default=archive] glassfish [warFilename] [warFilename]
    -packageAs:[default=archive] jboss [warFilename] [warFilename]
    -packageAs:[default=archive] war [warFilename] [warFilename]
    -packageAs:[default=archive] was [warFilename] [warFilename]
    -packageAs:[default=not supported] eclipse

Typical .war file layout:

   |   web.xml

   +---classes
   |   +---META-INF
   |   |       eclipselink-dbws.xml
