Web services are important building blocks to achieve a service-oriented architecture (SOA). As more and more applications move towards an SOA, often there is a need to expose application functionality as Web services. This article will show you how you can easily generate Web services using a simple Java™class to insert and retrieve XML data, into, and from DB2® 9 using the pureXML™ feature. Once the Web services are generated and deployed on the WebSphere® Application Server, you can test them using either the built-in Web services Explorer of Rational Application Developer (RAD) or XForms as a Web services client. The same services can be used by any Web services client that can make SOAP over HTTP Web service calls.
