I must admit to being new at this so excuse the newbie question. I colleague of mine stated that using normal JAX-RPC, I can call a web service using about three lines of code: 1) get locator, 2) get port, 3) call operation. However, with the Spring version using a JaxRpcPortProxyFactoryBean is far more code and XML configuration to do the same thing.
One could still create a managed bean in Spring that does the plain JAX-RPC call to get the IoC benefits.
I was planning on using the Spring version because I am a huge fan of it, but my coworker stated it would nuts to do so, since it is easier in plain JAX-RPC. I think we are missing something here but not sure what. So....
So, my question is, why does Spring provide the JaxRpcPortProxy? What benefit does it provide over plain JAX-RPC? Why does it seem to be harder to do in Spring than in JAX-RPC?
Thanks for helping enlighten us both.
