Enabling Web Service Development Support
To develop a Web service in IntelliJ IDEA, the corresponding module must be relevantly configured and supplied with all the required libraries and servlet references. This section describes the most common ways to meet these requirements.
To enable web service development support
- Use the dedicated facets. This fast and efficient approach is available for most frequently used WS engines. Note that IntelliJ IDEA will download the predefined WS engine implementation version.
- Enable support of an extra WS engine for which the dedicated facet functionality is not provided. This approach is also applicable when you need to use a specific WS engine implementation version.
- Add the relevant libraries to an existing module manually.
