As picture describes, we have User Profile Service web service with User Profile operations which accepts User Profile Request as input and returns User Profile Response. Spring Web Services takes care about all boiler-plate code and allows to concentrate on what really matters - implementation. Aside from very basic features, Spring Web Services allows to configure response/request validation (against XSD schema). In case of exception, User Profile Fault has been returned. JAXBElement; import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation. To do that, we need just to add validation interceptor to the application context: Also, Spring Web Services allows to define our own SOAP fault handlers (based on exception pattern) and much more! Endpoint interceptors are typically defined by using a element in your Spring application context.In this element, you can simply define endpoint interceptor beans that apply to all endpoints defined in that application context.
The objective here is to demonstrate how the Spring framework could be used to provide an end-to-end service-oriented solution as an alternative to JAX-WS and EJB3.
In order to accomplish it, this example will focus on the integration with external web services.
First, I will explain what are the necessary adapters that will allow us to invoke a web service from Spring Integration.
