Easy Java web services - JAXWS Deployments

One of the things I like about Java 6 is definitely the introduction of web services to the core of its APIs. I remember about two years ago when I was frustrated about working with flat files and wanted a way to run my client test files easily.

I work with an application that interacts with other applications owned by State agencies. If you are in the tech world, and your job is to work with any State agency, you would notice that most of the applications are written in some language that is losing its workforce(COBOL).

Some of these applications communicate with other applications by generating flat files, which get loaded by the receiving applications. Reading these flat file is definitely a pain. Luckily for me I was in an environment that allowed me to be creative and I took that opportunity to introduce web services as an alternate means of communicating with the State agencies.
