Web Services Development Tools

Enterprise platforms for Java have included Web services as part of their API offering since Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) V1.4. The latest iteration of this standard, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) V5, continues to support Web services with its current version. This means that any development environment for Java EE includes support for the creation of Web services by using the Java API for XML Web services (JAX-WS) and the Java Specification Request (JSR) 109 V1.2 specifications.
