Demystifying the Axis Deployment Descriptor

If you are using the Apache Axis Webservices implementation, you sooner or later run into issues of how to deploy a service on it using the WSDD (Web Service Deployment Descriptor). Often you need to augment the WSDD with information about what your services return. In this session we go into how to describe input and return values, and what you can and can not use to keep in interoperabilty issues away. We also look at a nifty little tool that automates the task of building the WSDD.

Using Dynamic Proxies

One of the lesser talked about features in Java is dynamic proxies. In this session we look at how the use of these in a real live application improved stability, improved the ability to find and correct bugs, and also simplified implementing logging standards.
