JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

Make a web service program which can persists the records of a student in the exam table.

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts


Project Requirement

Make a web service program which can persists the records of a student in the exam table.It should use SOAP Request and SOAP Response.


To solve the preceding problem, following tasks have to be performed:

  1. Use the netbeans
  2. Make a stud table in the jdbc:derby database
  3. Create a Web project
  4. Develop a Web Service program for student
  5. Create a exam operation in the web service
  6. Add enterprise resources for the database
  7. Edit source code
  8. Build & deploy the project
  9. Test the web service
Derby database

 This is a small database software bundled with Netbeans in glassfish server.It is easy to create  a database, create a table, make the queries
over it.User can connect easily the enterprise program,web service program and web program with derby database software.

Connecting  database
  • Open the Netbeans software
  • Navigate to the services tab
  • Open database folder and select the derby database
  • Right Click and select start the server as given below in figure 1

  • Select the sample database or you can create one
  • Right Click and Select Connect as given below in Figure 2.
  • It will connect to the sample database

     Figure 2

  • Right Click and select Create table as given
  • It will Open a dialog box as shown below in Figure 3

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

                 Figure 3

  • In this dialog box give the table name as stud
  • Now add the columns
  • Add the two columns
  • Roll with data type numeric and Name with data type char
  • Do all steps as shown   below in Figure 4.
  • It create a stud table a sample database

Creating Web Service project
  • Create a  new web project
  • Give a name as jaax2
  • Select the server as glassfish
  • Click on the finish as shown below in Figure 5

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts
    Figure 5

Create a web service
  • Right Click on the project
  • Select NewàWeb Service
  • Type name as stud
  • Type package as pack1 as shown below in Figure 6

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

    Figure 6

  • This will create a stud Web Service class
Adding operation
  • In the design view Click on the Add Operation
  • It will generate a Add operation Dialog Box as shown below in Figure. 7

––JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

    Figure. 7

  • In the pop up dialog box give the operation name and parameters
    • Operation name exam 
    • Return type String
    • Parameters name roll and name
  • Follow the steps according to Fig 8 given below

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

   Figure. 8

It creates a full web service class as shown below

package pack1;

import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.WebParam;
import javax.jws.WebService;

public class stud {

  @WebMethod(operationName = "exam")
  public String exam(@WebParam(name = "roll")
  int roll, @WebParam(name = "name")
  String name) {
  //TODO write your implementation code here:
  return null;


Adding Database capabilities
  • Database and table created above is used in the web service
  • Right Click in the code of Web Service
  • Select the Enterprise ResourcesàUse Database as shown

Below in Figure. 9.

    Figure. 9

  • Add the data source reference
  • Type Reference name data1
  • Select jdbc/sample Server Data Source as shown below in Fig 10.

    Figure. 10

  • Click on Ok as shown below in Fig. 11.

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts


  Figure. 11

  • This creates Data Source reference variable data1 at the top of method
  • Now make changes inn code for database connection as shown in code

package pack1;

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
import javax.annotation.Resource;
import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.WebParam;
import javax.jws.WebService;
import javax.sql.DataSource;

public class stud {
  @Resource(name = "data1")
  private DataSource data1;

  @WebMethod(operationName = "exam")
  public String exam(@WebParam(name = "roll")
  int roll, @WebParam(name = "name")String name) {
   String status="record not inserted";
  try {
  Connection con=data1.getConnection();
  PreparedStatement ps=con.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO stud VALUES(?,?)");
  int i=ps.executeUpdate();
  if(i!=0) {
  status="record inserted";
  catch(Exception e){
  System.out.println("error in strong data"+e);
  return status; 

Running The project

  • Build the above created project
  • Deploy the project on the server as shown below in Figure. 12
  • This deploys the project on the server
  • We can now run our Web Service 

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

Figure. 12

  • Right Click on Web Service stud
  • Select Test Web Service as shown below in Figure. 13

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts


      Figure 13

  • It open Web Service in the browser
  • Give the 1 and jack in text boxes
  • Text boxes are actually arguments of web method
  • Click  on exam button as shown below in Fig. 14

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts
     Figure. 14

  • Exam Buttons are actually method name of the Web Service
  • This will result the value with SOAP request and SOAP response

   As shown below in Figure 15.

  • It will insert the values in the Derby Database table

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

    Figure 15

  • Check the inserted values in the table
  • Right Click on the stud table in derby database
  • Select View Data as shown below in Figure 16.
  • It shows the inserted data as shown below in Figure 17.

Client Web Service
  • Take a new Web Application Project
  • Type name jax2Client
  • Click on Next as shown below in Figure. 18

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

      Figure. 18

  • Right Click on the project jax2Client.
  • Select the NewàWeb Service Client as shown below in Figure. 19
  • It creates a dialog box for WSDL and Client Location

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

     Figure 19

  • Now select either the project or give the WSDL URL
  • Click on Next as shown below in Figure. 20
  • Click on the Finish Button

     Figure. 20

  • Now make a Client.jsp  file
  • Right Click on the Project jax2Client
  • Select NewàJsp file
  • Give the name as Client1.jsp
  • Right Click in the code of Client1.jsp
  • Select Web Service Client Resources as shown below in Figure. 21

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

     Figure. 21

  • Select the operation in the Client project jax2ClientàstudServiceàstudPortàexam
  • As shown below in Figure. 22

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

   Figure. 22

  • The above steps generates code in Client.jsp
  • It gives the stud Web Service object, Stud  port and operation name code
  • In two arguments name and roll initialize the value.

As  shown below in Figure. 23.

Running The Client file
  • Deploy the jax2Client project
  • Right Click in Client.jsp and select Run Client.jsp

 As shown below in Figure. 24.
JAX-RPC Advance Concepts

    Figure. 24

  • It runs the file in the Internet Browser
  • It gives the status message record inserted
  • In case of failure it will display record not inserted

  Aas shown below in Figure. 25

JAX-RPC Advance Concepts     Figure. 25

  • On running the Client.jsp it inserts the value into the table
  • To view the table data Right Click on the stud table in sample database in derby
  • It fetches the records  and display it in table  as shown below in Figure 26
