Hi,
I am creating web service using NetBeans 6.5 IDE and JAX-WS. I create a web application and then create web service using provided interface. I want to add .txt file as an attachment/parameter to the web service operation using "Add operation" interface. Don't want to add as an attachment to the SOAP message by creating it explicitly. IDE generates SOAP request and response automatically when the service is tested using "Test Web service" option. How can I add attcahment when I add operation so that it will appear in the generated SOAP message ?
TIA.

Hi AnitaDP,
Attachment doesn't work in web service. You have to pass the content of the text file as a String or as an array of bytes to a method of your web service. From there, you may save the passed data in a file.
