Mark and Eric
Thanks for your thoughts. They are very useful.
“You could also create a webMethods flow service and have it invoke your jar via a webmethods java service that imports the jar. The flow service would be your web service and not the java stuff. This sounds like what your client is probably looking for but may not be articulating correctly.”
I was planning to create a wrapper service (flow) with all inputs and outputs required for doc/literal (I am not sure will that be successful or not). This wrapper service will wrap wM Java service (JAVA 2). This wrapper service will be used to generate WSDL. This JAVA 2 will import jar file (which internally talk to DB).
“Is there something you can’t do in webMethods that makes you want to use Java?”
Yes, Client got this jar file working and already in production. Now he wants to introduce a webservice (with out changing anything to DB connections/jar file/JAVA 1) in between JAVA1 and jar file. This web service should be created using webMethods and hosted in webMethods.
I want to introduce a JAVA 2, which decouples JAVA1 and jar file, so that I can wrap it in a wrapper and create a WSDL out of it.
BIG BIG BIG Question is
How the IBM jar hosted in <mypackage>/classes/jars will get connection information from WebLogic???
Is there a way to link webMethods and WebLogic?? (only link I know is to use BrokerJMS acting as message server configured on WebLogic, correct me if I am wrong). In this case it’s not appropriate to use BrokerJMS (I guess)
At this point I am not sure about UDDI…I need to do some basic research on this and get back to you…
Thanks all for your input…
