I have an EJB application which is deployed in BEA Weblogic 8.1 SP4. There are two modules packed into an ear.
Module 1: EJB Jar module
Module 2: Webservice module
There is an ant task , which helps exposing these EJBs as web services, creating the schema into the webservice module.
Recently this application is being migrated to Weblogic 10.3. The changes are:
1. EJB 2 to EJB 3
2. JDK 4 to JDK 6
3. Removing the need to anttask and annotating the EJBs with @Webservice annotation to expose the web services.
Now by default in the weblogic server, the style seen to be : Web Service Type: JAX-WS 2.1
There is an application which uses the aforesaid application through web service, creating webservice clients. Now these application was not migrated to use the JAX-WS advantage, it still uses JDK4 and JAX-RPC. We don't have access to the client generation code and we cannot change this application. This application is not identifying the JAX-WS schema as follows:
IN JAX-WS : the simCardDetails[which is an array] element is like this :
*<xs:element name="simCardDetails" type="tns:SimCardDetails" nillable="true" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" />*
In JAX-RPC :
*<xsd:element type="stns:ArrayOfSimCardDetails" name="simCardDetails" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" nillable="true" />*
where ArrayOfSimCardDetails is
*<xsd:complexType name="ArrayOfSimCardDetails">* - <xsd:complexContent> - <xsd:restriction xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" base="soapenc:Array">
*<xsd:attribute xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/" ref="soapenc:arrayType" wsdl:arrayType="stns:SimCardDetails" />*
Now experts, what are my options for this problem?? Please help.
1. Can I change the weblogic server to use the JAX-RPC by default?
2. How do I proceed , so that I dont have to change the calling application and solve the problem??
