IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 Help

Enabling Web Service Client Development Support

This feature is only supported in the Ultimate edition.

To develop a Web service client in IntelliJ IDEA, the corresponding module must be relevantly configured and supplied with all the required libraries. This section describes the most common ways to meet these requirements.

To enable Web service client development support, do one of the following:

  • Use the dedicated facet. This fast and efficient approach is available for most frequently used WS engines.

    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.
