Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) API are used to access a central transient container registry. The registry is mainly used for discovery of the ResourceHome implementations. However, the registry can also be used store and retrieve arbitrary information. The jndi-config.xml files are used to populate the registry. See the JNDI Tutorial for details.
It is an XML-based configuration file used to populate the container registry accessible via the JNDI API. See in the Java WS Core Developer's Guide] for details.
In Java WS Core, resources are managed and discovered via ResourceHome implementations. The ResourceHome implementations can also be responsible for creating new resources, performing operations on a set of resources at a time, etc. ResourceHomes are configured in JNDI and are associated with a particular web service.
- Web Services Addressing (WSA)
The WS-Addressing specification defines transport-neutral mechanisms to address web services and messages. Specifically, it defines XML elements to identify web service endpoints and to secure end-to-end endpoint identification in messages. See the W3C WS Addressing Working Group for details.
- Web Services Description Language (WSDL)
WSDL is an XML document for describing Web services. Standardized binding conventions define how to use WSDL in conjunction with SOAP and other messaging substrates. WSDL interfaces can be compiled to generate proxy code that constructs messages and manages communications on behalf of the client application. The proxy automatically maps the XML message structures into native language objects that can be directly manipulated by the application. The proxy frees the developer from having to understand and manipulate XML. See the WSDL 1.1 specification for details.
Extensible Markup Language (XML) is standard, flexible, and extensible data format used for web services. See the W3C XML site for details.
