There is a very cool recent blog entry by Milan Kuchtiak, called JAX-WS Tutorial: Working With Binary Data. Milan is one of the NetBeans engineers in the Java EE team, and currently on the Web Services Core team, responsible for several web features in the IDE, such as the web.xml editor, among many others. Milan's blog entry shows you how to use the IDE to create a web application that exposes a web service that delegates to a session bean to provide photos. The photos are retrieved by a standard Java Swing application, with the result shown below:

The very cool thing about his instructions are that you cover a lot of the IDE and, more importantly, many aspects of the related technologies, including MTOM, which stands for Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism. I am working on turning his blog entry into a tutorial, so that you can follow the entire application step by step, which will be published on netbeans.org for the 6.0 release. At the end of the tutorial, you will have three different projects in the IDE, all working together:

But, all the instructions you will need for this are already described in Milan's blog. In fact, I managed to build the entire application from scratch, based on the instructions in that blog entry. So, that's a fun thing to do over the weekend, to introduce yourself to Java EE 5 technologies in NetBeans IDE 6.0 Beta 1. (Most things described should also work in 5.5, except for the MTOM part at the end, which is applicable to 6.0 only, at least, in the way it is described in the blog entry.)
