This tutorial introduces the process for using MyEclipse web services feature-set to quickly develop and testing a HelloWorld web service using a "code-first" web service development strategy. The code-first strategy concentrates development priorities and effort towards developing application business logic prior to addressing the web service interfacing requirements of the service. Typcially code-first projects will design and implement the Java beans (POJOs) responsible for the core business use-cases. Once satisfied with the POJO implementation, the web service interface will be designed and implemented to expose the public POJO services. This approach is considered ad-hoc by many and is best utilized for prototyping or small standalone system of services.
