Web Service Applications with IntelliJ IDEA

Since version 7.0 IntelliJ IDEA provides the complete support for creating Web Service applications, providing the full range of productivity-boosting features:

  • Smart code completion
  • Syntax and error highlighting
  • Code analysis, inspections, quick-fixes and refactoring
  • Automatic code generation, including WSDL/WADL from Java and vice versa
  • Dedicated run configurations for debugging and automated deployment
  • and more


To help you get started with developing Web Service applications using IntelliJ IDEA, I’ve created a small tutorial, demonstrating how to create a simple Web Service and client application in literally few clicks. The tutorial shows how to create, deploy and use Web Service based on Apache Axis and JaxWS frameworks, with appropriate server and run configurations.
You can get it in PDF format here.

    Is there a tutorial that works with IDEA version 13?

  3. Egor Malyshev says:

    The newest version covered is 10.5: http://wiki.jetbrains.net/intellij/Developing_a_simple_Apache_Axis_WebService and http://wiki.jetbrains.net/intellij/Developing_a_simple_JaxWS_WebService, but I think that they still work for 13 with maybe a little tweaking because of different UI.
