how to exclude web service operation (web method) from the web service in jax-ws

The annotation @WebService tells the server runtime environment to expose all public methods on that bean as a Web service. In below example, all the public methods in the web service will be exposed as web methods.


package com.chathurangaonline.sample.jax.ws;
 
import javax.jws.WebService;
import com.chathurangaonline.sample.model.Hotel;
 
@WebService
public class HotelWebService{
 
    public Hotel retriveHolelByCity(String cityName) {
        //todo implementation should goes here 
        return new Hotel();
    }


    public void addNewHotel(Hotel hotel) {
        //todo implementation should goes here 
    }
}


suppose that you do not need to expose the  addNewHotel method as a web service operation method. but the default implementation of the @WebService method will expose all public methods as web service operations. but there is a special annotation that will prevent the method by exposing/publishing as a web service operation.

    @WebMethod(exclude = true)


Refer the below class and try to publish the web service.

package com.chathurangaonline.sample.jax.ws;
 
import javax.jws.WebService;
import com.chathurangaonline.sample.model.Hotel;
 
@WebService
public class HotelWebService{
 
    public Hotel retriveHolelByCity(String cityName) 
        //todo implementation should goes here 
        return new Hotel();
    }


    @WebMethod(exclude = true)
    public void addNewHotel(Hotel hotel) {
        //todo implementation should goes here 
    }
}


here the  addNewHotel method will not be exposed or published as a web service operation/method.

i hope that this will be helpful for you!
