Subject RE: [WSM] About Beehive-120 in Jira.
Date Mon, 13 Dec 2004 20:11:05 GMT
I thought of apt being run at build time. The build process would
generate a class file and an object model file; both artifacts are
required to to successfully deploy the web service. Version/date
checking would not be necessary. We can add error checking to see if the
versions match -- or, since both are generated at the same time, assume
that they do. Note that neither the class file nor the object model file
are supposed to be tampered with; they're generated files. At
deploy-time, the object model would be deserialized, class or source
files would not be required for that purpose anymore. In other words, we
would never generate an object model at runtime, but at build time. The
class file and the object model file are both integral part of the web
service artifact(s); both get deployed as part of deploying the web

Guten Tag Wolfgang,

I'm a bit reluctant to insert things into the JWS source since if we had
APT doing that, we could just have APT add @WebParam annotations for
every parameter.

The way I understood Michael describe it, and he is welcome to correct
me if I am wrong, is that APT could produce a compiled class file and a
file containing the serialized WSM object model.  Then, when the
reflection WSM annotation processor runs, it can see if a serialized OM
is available and not older than the class file.  If that is the case,
the processor can just load that up using ObjectInputStream instead of
reflecting against the class itself.  This way there is no re-parsing of
the source, param names are retained and we don't mess around with
either the JWS source or the resulting class.  If we run into situations
where the serialized OM gets out of sync with the class, some checks
could be made to see if the serialized data matches that of a newly
created WSM OM made from reflection against the class.

Does that sound reasonable?

Hi Jonathan, 

How about this way ?

Get the param names from jws and put a hidden constant pool ( class
variable ) holding the names into the jws and makes APT compile it.

After the compilation, replaces the modified code with the original one.

Here's the example.
-------- original jws -------------------------- @WebService public
class MyWS {
   public void WhatIsYourAge(int age){...}

   public void Add(int myAge, int yourAge){...} }

-------- modified jws -------------------------- @WebService public
class MyWS {
   public static Map<String,String> _HIDDEN_CONSTANT_POOL_ 
                      = new HashMap<String,String>();

   public void WhatIsYourAge(int age){...} }

We have to be careful that the name of the class variable doesn't be
doubled in the original code, but this way is really simple and easy.
( Of course, we must think how to match the name of the key in the pool
and a method in the jws. )

Thanks in advance.
