I am facing the following problem.
I am creating a Web Service Provider using a WSDL file that I get from a different department. (This is the requirement).
After creating the Web Service Provider I get some empty services (only inputs and outputs, no implementation) that are to be implemented according to my desired business logic.
This services are under /…/name_of_wsp/services/.
All is OK until the WSDL I have changes.
If the WSDL changes what I do is usually to delete all the generated artifacts and the Web Service Provider and then go back through the process of creating the Web Service Provider.
However if I do this, it means that all the code that I put in the generated services will be lost.
How can this be avoided?
Is there another way to re-create the WSP without deleting the “old” artifacts?
Or can I specify where should the services be stored, so they are not deleted after each re-creation of the WSP.
Thank you for your ideas,
