I've found a couple issues when using NetBeans to generate a WSDL file for an EE 6 web service, and then customizing that WSDL file. Some other users have reported them as well, so I thought I'd share them with the community.

  • When I set a new wsdlLocation attribute in the web service class, this is ignored and the default, autogenerated WSDL is used instead. It appears that GlassFish v3 doesn't recognize the wsdlLocation attribute. A bug against GlassFish has been reported (11437), there's a fix in the nightly GF builds, and the fix will be there in 3.0.1. In the meantime, it's probably worth downloading and installing the nightly GF build and registering this server in the IDE.

  • When you use NetBeans to generate the WSDL for an EE 6 JAX-WS service, generation fails because wsgen "Could not create declaration for annotation type javax.ejb.Stateless" or javax.ejb.EJB. Workaround is simply to comment out those annotations, generate WSDL, then uncomment them. Alternatively, add the javax.ejb.jar file from GlassFish /modules to your project classpath. Problem is reported as NetBeans bug 181867.
