Tips&Tricks: How to set web service url end point

Posted by Jai on October 11, 2013

A quick tip to change the url end point for a webservice. Keep the web service end point as configurable to be able to use it under different test/demo/live environments.

WebClientTestService service = new WebClientTestService() ;
String serviceEndPoint = "http://localhost/soap/testEndPoint";
Map<String, Object> context = ((BindingProvider)service).getRequestContext();
//Set service end point
context.put(BindingProvider.ENDPOINT_ADDRESS_PROPERTY, serviceEndPoint);

Keep the service end point etc. configurations as system property or pick from properties file to make it configuration in the system to be able to use different test/demo/live environment without changes the client code.
