Chapter 29. Publishing a Service

Abstract

When you want to deploy a JAX-WS service as a standalone Java application, you must explicitly implement the code that publishes the service provider.

29.1. When to Publish a Service

Apache CXF provides a number of ways to publish a service as a service provider. How you publish a service depends on the deployment environment you are using. Many of the containers supported by Apache CXF do not require writing logic for publishing endpoints. There are two exceptions:
  • deploying a server as a standalone Java application
  • deploying a server into an OSGi container without Blueprint
For detailed information in deploying applications into the supported containers see Part IV, “Configuring Web Service Endpoints”.
