+<h3>A Quick Setup Note:</h3><p>The code for the document can be found in the extracted <a href="../download/1_4/download.html#std-bin">Standard
+Binary Distribution</a>
+, more specifically at Axis2_HOME/samples/
+inside the directories- quickstart, quickstartadb, quickstartaxiom,
+quickstartjibx and quickstartxmlbeans. (Consider getting it now as
+it will help you to follow along.) It includes Ant buildfiles
+(build.xml) that we'll refer to throughout the examples to make
+compilation easier.</p>
+<a name="introduction"></a>
+<h2>Introduction</h2><p>Let's start with the service itself. We'll make it simple so you
+can see what is going on when we build and deploy the services. A
+StockQuoteService example seems to be mandatory in instances like
+this one, so let's use the following (see Code Listing 1).</p>
+<p><b>Code Listing 1: The StockQuoteService class</b>
+</p>
+<pre>
+package samples.quickstart.service.pojo;
+
+import java.util.HashMap;
+
+public class StockQuoteService {
+    private HashMap map = new HashMap();
+
+    public double getPrice(String symbol) {
+        Double price = (Double) map.get(symbol);
+        if(price != null){
+            return price.doubleValue();
+        }
+        return 42.00;
+    }
+
+    public void update(String symbol, double price) {
+        map.put(symbol, new Double(price));
+    }
+}
+</pre><p>It will be a simple service with two possible calls. One of
+which is an in/out message, and the other is an in-only service.
+Ultimately, we'll package the service and deploy it in four
+different ways.</p>
+<p>First, let's look at how this simple Java class corresponds to a
+service.</p>
+<a name="ready"></a>
+<h2>Getting Ready</h2><p>Before we build anything using Axis2, we have to take care of a
+little housekeeping. First off, you'll need to get your environment
+ready for working with Axis2. Fortunately, it involves just a few
+simple steps:</p>
+<ol type="1"><li>Download and install Java (Minimum version is JDK1.4). Set the
+JAVA_HOME environment variable to the pathname of the directory
+into which you installed the JDK release.</li>
+<li>Download Axis2 and extract it to a target directory.</li>
+<li>Copy the axis2.war file to the webapps directory of your
+servlet engine.</li>
+<li>Set the AXIS2_HOME environment variable to point to the target
+directory in step. Note that all of the scripts and build files
+Axis2 generates depend on this value, so don't skip this step!
+Linux users can alternatively run the setenv.sh file in the
+AXIS2_HOME/bin directory to set the AXIS2_HOME environment variable
+to the pathname of the extracted directory of Axis2.</li>
+</ol>
+<p>In most cases, we're also going to need a WSDL file for our
+service. Axis2's Java2WSDL can be used to bootstrap a WSDL. To
+generate a WSDL file from a Java class, perform the following
+steps:</p>
+<ol type="1"><li>Create and compile the Java class.
+<pre>
+(Windows)
+%AXIS2_HOME%\bin\java2wsdl -cp . -cn samples.quickstart.service.pojo.StockQuoteService -of StockQuoteService.wsdl
+
+(Linux)
+$AXIS2_HOME/bin/java2wsdl -cp . -cn samples.quickstart.service.pojo.StockQuoteService -of StockQuoteService.wsdl
+</pre></li>
+<li>Generate the WSDL using the command:</li>
+</ol>
+<p>Once you've generated the WSDL file, you can make the changes
+you need. For example, you might add custom faults or change the
+name of the generated elements. For example, this
+StockQuoteService.wsdl is in
+AXIS2_HOME/samples/quickstartadb/resources/META-INF folder, which
+we'll be using throughout the rest of this guide, replaces the
+generic parameters created by the generation process.</p>
+<a name="services"></a>
+<h2>Axis2 Services</h2><p>Before we build anything, it's helpful to understand what the
+finished product looks like.</p>
+<p>The server side of Axis2 can be deployed on any Servlet engine,
+and has the following structure. Shown in Code Listing 2.</p>
+<p><b>Code Listing 2: The Directory Structure of axis2.war</b>
+</p>
+<pre>
+axis2-web 
+META-INF
+WEB-INF
+    classes 
+    conf
+        axis2.xml 
+    lib
+        activation.jar
+        ...
+        xmlSchema.jar
+    modules
+        modules.list 
+        addressing.mar
+        ...
+        soapmonitor.mar
+    services
+        services.list
+        aservice.aar
+        ...
+        version.aar
+    web.xml
+</pre><p>Starting at the top, axis2-web is a collection of JSPs that make
+up the Axis2 administration application, through which you can
+perform any action such as adding services and engaging and
+dis-engaging modules. The WEB-INF directory contains the actual
+java classes and other support files to run any services deployed
+to the services directory.</p>
+<p>The main file in all this is axis2.xml, which controls how the
+application deals with the received messages, determining whether
+Axis2 needs to apply any of the modules defined in the modules
+directory.</p>
+<p>Services can be deployed as *.aar files, as you can see here,
+but their contents must be arranged in a specific way. For example,
+the structure of this service will be as follows:</p>
+<a name="aarstructure"></a>
+<pre>
+- StockQuoteService
+   - META-INF
+     - services.xml
+   - lib
+   - samples
+     - quickstart
+       - service
+         - pojo
+           - StockQuoteService.class
+</pre><p>Here, the name of the service is StockQuoteService, which is
+specified in the services.xml file and corresponds to the top-level
+folder of this service. Compiled Java classes are placed underneath
+this in their proper place based on the package name. The lib
+directory holds any service-specific JAR files needed for the

+itself and links the Java class to it (See Code Listing 3).</p>

+&lt;/service&gt;
+</pre><p>Here the service is defined, along with the relevant
+messageReceiver types for the different message exchange
+patterns.</p>
+<p>The META-INF directory is also the location for any custom WSDL
+files you intend to include for this application.</p>
+<p>You can deploy a service by simply taking this hierarchy of
+files and copying it to the webapps/axis2/WEB-INF/services
+directory of your servlet engine. (Note the Axis2 WAR file must be
+installed first in the servlet engine.) This is known as the
+&quot;exploded&quot; format. You can also compress your documents into an
+*.aar file, similar to a *.jar file, and place the *.aar file
+directly in the servlet engine's webapps/axis2/WEB-INF/services
+directory.</p>
+<p>Now that you understand what we're trying to accomplish, we're
+almost ready to start building.</p>
+<p>First, <a href="../download/1_4/download.html#std-bin">download</a>
+
+and unzip the appropriate version of Axis2 Standard Binary
+Distribution. Make sure that you set the value of the AXIS2_HOME
+variable to match the location into which you extracted the
+contents of this release.</p>
+<p>Let's look at some different ways to create clients and
+services.</p>
+<a name="create"></a>
+<h2>Creating Services</h2><p>In this section, we'll look at five ways to create a service
+based on the StockQuoteService class: deploying Plain Old Java
+Objects (POJO), building the service using AXIOM's OMElement,
+generating the service using Axis2 Databinding Framework (ADB),
+generating the service using XMLBeans, and generating the service
+using JiBX.</p>
+<a name="deploy"></a>
+<h3>Deploying POJOs</h3><p>To deploy the service using POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects),
+execute the following steps.</p>
+<p>Note the directory structure contained at
+AXIS2_HOME/samples/quickstart (the services.xml file is
+from the first section of this guide):</p>
+<pre>
+- quickstart
+   - README.txt
+   - build.xml
+   - resources
+     - META-INF
+       - services.xml
+   - src
+     - samples
+       - quickstart
+         - service
+           - pojo
+             - StockQuoteService.java
+</pre><p>Note that you can generate a WSDL from the quickstart directory
+by typing:</p>
+<pre>
+ant generate.wsdl
+</pre>
+However, creating StockQuoteService.wsdl is optional. It can be the
+version generated directly from the Java class, or a customized
+version of that file, and that services.xml is the same file
+referenced earlier in this document.
+<p>Now build the project by typing ant generate.service in the
+quickstart directory, which creates the following directory
+structure:</p>
+<pre>
+- quickstart/build/classes
+   - META-INF
+     - services.xml
+   - samples
+     - quickstart
+       - service
+         - pojo
+           - StockQuoteService.class
+</pre><p>If you want to deploy the service in an exploded directory
+format, rename the classes directory to StockQuoteService, and copy
+it to the webapps/axis2/WEB-INF/services directory in your servlet
+engine. Otherwise, copy the build/StockQuoteService.aar file to the
+webapps/axis2/WEB-INF/services directory in your servlet engine.
+Then check to make sure that the service has been properly deployed
+by viewing the list of services at:</p>
+<pre>
+http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/listServices
+</pre><p>You can also checkout the WSDL at:</p>
+<pre>
+http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/StockQuoteService?wsdl
+</pre><p>And the schema at:</p>
+<pre>
+http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/StockQuoteService?xsd
+</pre><p>Once the URLs are working, quickly test the service. Try
+pointing your browser to the following URL:</p>
+<pre>
+http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/StockQuoteService/getPrice?symbol=IBM
+</pre><p>You will get the following response:</p>
+<pre>
+&lt;ns:getPriceResponse xmlns:ns=&quot;http://pojo.service.quickstart.samples/xsd&quot;&gt;&lt;ns:return&gt;42&lt;/ns:return&gt;&lt;/ns:getPriceResponse&gt;
+</pre><p>If you invoke the update method as,</p>
+<pre>
+http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/StockQuoteService/update?symbol=IBM&amp;price=100
+</pre>
+and then execute the first getPrice URL, you will see that the
+price has got updated. <a name="axiom"></a>
+<h3>Building the Service using AXIOM</h3><p>To build a service &quot;from scratch&quot; using AXIOM, execute the
+following steps.</p>
+<p>Note the directory structure contained at
+/samples/quickstartaxiom:</p>
+<pre>
+- quickstartaxiom
+   - README.txt
+   - build.xml
+   - resources
+     - META-INF
+       - services.xml
+       - StockQuoteService.wsdl
+   - src
+     - samples
+       - quickstart
+         - service
+           - axiom
+             - StockQuoteService.java
+         - clients
+           - AXIOMClient.java
+</pre><p>Since AXIOM is a little different, you're going to need a
+different services.xml file from the one used for POJO. Define it,
+as shown in Code Listing 4.</p>
+<p><b>Code Listing 4: The Service Definition File.</b>
+</p>
+<pre>
+&lt;service name=&quot;StockQuoteService&quot; scope=&quot;application&quot;&gt;
+    &lt;description&gt;
+        Stock Quote Service
+    &lt;/description&gt;
+    &lt;operation name=&quot;getPrice&quot;&gt;
+        &lt;messageReceiver class=&quot;org.apache.axis2.receivers.RawXMLINOutMessageReceiver&quot;/&gt;
+    &lt;/operation&gt;
+    &lt;operation name=&quot;update&quot;&gt;
+        &lt;messageReceiver class=&quot;org.apache.axis2.receivers.RawXMLINOnlyMessageReceiver&quot;/&gt;
+    &lt;/operation&gt;
+    &lt;parameter name=&quot;ServiceClass&quot;&gt;samples.quickstart.service.axiom.StockQuoteService&lt;/parameter&gt;
+&lt;/service&gt;
+</pre><p>Note that it's almost the same, except that the operations are
+explicitly defined in the service.xml file, and the
+MessageReceivers are now RawXML.</p>
+<p>Now, the above referenced StockQuoteService.java class, a plain
+Java class that uses classes from the Axis2 libraries, is defined
+as shown in Code Listing 5.</p>
+<p><b>Code Listing 5: The StockQuoteService Class using

+Methods that act as services must take as their argument an
+OMElement, which represents an XML element that happens, in this
+case, to be the payload of the incoming SOAP message. Method
+getPrice(OMElement), for example, extracts the contents of the
+first child of the payload element, which corresponds to the stock
+symbol, and uses this to look up the current price of the stock.
+Unless this is an &quot;in only&quot; service, these methods must return an

+Object Model)-like structure that is based on the StAX API
+(Streaming API for XML). Here you setup the payload for the update
+and getPrice methods of the service. The payloads are created
+similar to how you created the getPriceResponse payload for the
+AXIOM service. Then you setup the Options class, and create a
+ServiceClient that you'll use to communicate with the service.
+First you call the update method, which is a fireAndForget method
+that returns nothing. Lastly, you call the getPrice method, and
+retrieve the current price from the service and display it.</p>
+<p>Now you can build and run the AXIOM client by typing ant
+run.client in the Axis2_HOME/samples/quickstartaxiom directory.</p>
+<p>You should get the following as output:</p>
+<pre>
+done

+<a name="intro"></a>
+<h2>Introduction</h2><p>WSDL 2.0 HTTP Binding defines a way to implement REST (Representational
+State Transfer) with Web services. Axis2 implements the most defined HTTP
+binding specification. REST Web services are a reduced subset of the usual
+Web service stack.</p>
+<p>The Axis2 REST implementation assumes the following properties:</p>
+<ol type="1"><li>REST Web services are Synchronous and Request Response in nature.</li>
+<li>When REST Web services are accessed via GET, the service and the
+    operations are identified based on the URL. The parameters are assumed as
+    parameters of the Web service. In this case, the GET based REST Web
+    services support only simple types as arguments and it should adhere to
+    the <a class="externalLink" href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/CR-wsdl20-adjuncts-20060327/#_operation_iri_style">IRI
+    style</a>
+.</li>
+<li>POST based Web services do not need a SOAP Envelope or a SOAP Body.
+    REST Web Services do not have Headers and the payload is sent
+  directly.</li>
+</ol>
+<p>Axis2 can be configured as a REST Container and can be used to send and
+receive RESTful Web service requests and responses. REST Web services can be
+accessed using HTTP GET and POST.</p>
+<a name="rest_with_post"></a>
+<h2>REST Web Services with HTTP POST</h2><p>If REST is enabled, the Axis2 server will act as both a REST endpoint and
+a SOAP endpoint. When a message is received, if the content type is text/xml
+and if the SOAPAction Header is missing, then the message is treated as a
+RESTful Message, if not it is treated as a usual SOAP Message.</p>
+<p>On sending a message, whether the message is RESTful or not, can be
+decided from the client API.<br />
+
+Set a property in the client API.<br />
+</p>
+<pre>...
+Options options = new Options();
+options.setProperty(Constants.Configuration.ENABLE_REST, Constants.VALUE_TRUE);
+...</pre><a name="sample"></a>
+<h3>Sample REST - HTTP POST Client</h3><p>There is an example named, userguide.clients.RESTClient.java found in
+AXIS2_HOME/samples/userguide/src/userguide/clients which demonstrates the
+usage of the above. It uses the &quot;echo&quot; operation of the
+<code>userguide.example1.MyService </code>of the
+AXIS2_HOME/samples/userguide/src/userguide/example1.</p>
+<p>The class source will be as follows:</p>
+<div class="source"><pre><pre>public class RESTClient {
+
+    private static String toEpr = &quot;http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/MyService&quot;;
+    
+    public static void main(String[] args) throws AxisFault {
+
+        Options options = new Options();
+        options.setTo(new EndpointReference(toEpr));
+        
+        options.setProperty(Constants.Configuration.ENABLE_REST, Constants.VALUE_TRUE);
+
+        ServiceClient sender = new ServiceClient();
+        sender.engageModule(new QName(Constants.MODULE_ADDRESSING));
+        sender.setOptions(options);
+        OMElement result = sender.sendReceive(getPayload());
+
+        try {
+            XMLStreamWriter writer = XMLOutputFactory.newInstance()
+                    .createXMLStreamWriter(System.out);
+            result.serialize(writer);
+            writer.flush();
+        } catch (XMLStreamException e) {
+            e.printStackTrace();
+        } catch (FactoryConfigurationError e) {
+            e.printStackTrace();
+        }
+    }
+    private static OMElement getPayload() {
+        OMFactory fac = OMAbstractFactory.getOMFactory();
+        OMNamespace omNs = fac.createOMNamespace(
+                &quot;http://example1.org/example1&quot;, &quot;example1&quot;);
+        OMElement method = fac.createOMElement(&quot;echo&quot;, omNs);
+        OMElement value = fac.createOMElement(&quot;Text&quot;, omNs);
+        value.addChild(fac.createOMText(value, &quot;Axis2 Echo String &quot;));
+        method.addChild(value);
+
+        return method;
+    }
+}</pre></pre>

+<h2>Access a REST Web Service via HTTP GET</h2><p>Axis2 allows users to access Web services that have simple type parameters
+via HTTP GET. For example, the following URL requests the Version Service via
+HTTP GET. However, the Web service arriving via GET assumes REST. Other
+parameters are converted into XML and put into the SOAP body.</p>
+<div class="source"><pre><pre>http://127.0.0.1:8080/axis2/services/Version/getVersion</pre></pre>
+</div>
+<p>The result can be shown in the browser as follows:</p>
+<img src="/images/userguide/http-get-ws.jpg" /><p>For example, the following request,</p>
+<div class="source"><pre><pre>http://127.0.0.1:8080/axis2/services/Version/getVersion</pre></pre>
+</div>
+will be converted into the following SOAP message for processing by
+Axis2.<div class="source"><pre><pre> 
+   &lt;soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=&quot;http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/&quot;&gt;
+      &lt;soapenv:Body&gt;   
+          &lt;axis2:getVersion xmlns:axis2=&quot;http://ws.apache.org/goGetWithREST&quot; /&gt;
+      &lt;/soapenv:Body&gt;
+   &lt;/soapenv:Envelope&gt;
+    </pre></pre>
