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.
