Hi, I wonder if someone could help me, I need a guide on how to create, consume and publish web services and wsdl in jboss for beginners, using the tools of eclipse or netbeans.

Thank you very much

Java based web services will work fine (as will ones created in other languages), and I find the Eclipse JBoss Tools pretty easy to use.  If you are using the LiveCycle ES server products, you can create a workflow and expose that using a web service end point as well.

Since you are building the WS for a PDF Form I would suggest keeping to Literal web serivices (as opposed to RPC).  You may want to keep to simple object types as well (string, int, etc), as it will make binding easier.

This is a bit beyond the normal realm of this forum, as it deals with using the LiveCycle ES APIs via a web service call (SOAP).

However, you may want to look into using the JBoss Tools for Eclipse Helios if you want to build your own from scratch:

My intention is to create web services to consume from PDF forms, I thought it was the right way from eclipse, this is good practice or is there a better way?

Thanks.

I became clearer. I am using LiveCycle Server and PDF forms to get data from the MySql database (Turnkey) and link data from other systems.

Thanks.
