java address dynamically - How to change webservice url endpoint?

1 Answers

To add some clarification here, when you create your service, the service class uses the default 'wsdlLocation', which was inserted into it when the class was built from the wsdl. So if you have a service class called SomeService, and you create an instance like this:

SomeService someService = new SomeService();

If you look inside SomeService, you will see that the constructor looks like this:

public SomeService() {
        super(__getWsdlLocation(), SOMESERVICE_QNAME);

So if you want it to point to another URL, you just use the constructor that takes a URL argument (there are 6 constructors for setting qname and features as well). For example, if you have set up a local TCP/IP monitor that is listening on port 9999, and you want to redirect to that URL:

URL newWsdlLocation = "http://theServerName:9999/somePath"
SomeService someService = new SomeService(newWsdlLocation);

and that will call this constructor inside the service:

public SomeService(URL wsdlLocation) {
    super(wsdlLocation, SOMESERVICE_QNAME);
example soap location

I generated a web-service client using JBoss utils (JAX-WS compatible) using Eclipse 'web service client from a wsdl'.

So, the only thing I provided was a url to a web-service WSDL.

Now, the web service provider tells me to change the "url of client endpoint application access" of the web-service.

What is it and how to change it?
