Web Services Compression in JAX-WS / Metro ... And the JAX-WS User's Guide
By pelegri on Jul 07, 2007
Jitu shows how to configure the JAX-WS RI (part of Metro) for compression.
The server (running on a container) can do compression and decompression - Jitu shows how to configure Apache Tomcat and GlassFish. The client side (the JAX-WS implementation) will decode; all that is necessary is to add an appropriate Accept-Encoding header. Currently there is no encoding built into the client code, if you have a use case, please let Jitu know.
