To change a webservice deployment URI one solution is to use openejb-jar.xml.

In this sample we have a webservice though the class Rot13:

package org.superbiz.jaxws;

import javax.ejb.Lock;
import javax.ejb.LockType;
import javax.ejb.Singleton;
import javax.jws.WebService;

public class Rot13 {
    public String rot13(final String in) {
        final StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder(in.length());
        for (int b : in.toCharArray()) {
            int cap = b & 32;
            b &= ~cap;
            if (Character.isUpperCase(b)) {
                b = (b - 'A' + 13) % 26 + 'A';
            } else {
                b = cap;
            b |= cap;
            builder.append((char) b);
        return builder.toString();

We decide to deploy to /tool/rot13 url.

To do so we first define it in openejb-jar.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<openejb-jar xmlns="">

It is not enough since by default TomEE deploys the webservices in a subcontext called webservices. To skip it simply set the system property tomee.jaxws.subcontext to / (done in arquillian.xml for our test).

Then now our Rot13 webservice is deployed as expected to /tool/rot13 and we check it with arquillian and tomee embedded:

 package org.superbiz.jaxws;

 import org.apache.ziplock.IO;
 import org.jboss.arquillian.container.test.api.Deployment;
 import org.jboss.arquillian.junit.Arquillian;
 import org.jboss.arquillian.test.api.ArquillianResource;
 import org.jboss.shrinkwrap.api.ArchivePaths;
 import org.jboss.shrinkwrap.api.ShrinkWrap;
 import org.jboss.shrinkwrap.api.asset.ClassLoaderAsset;
 import org.jboss.shrinkwrap.api.spec.WebArchive;
 import org.junit.AfterClass;
 import org.junit.BeforeClass;
 import org.junit.Test;
 import org.junit.runner.RunWith;


 import static org.junit.Assert.assertThat;
 import static org.junit.internal.matchers.StringContains.containsString;

 public class Rot13Test {
     private URL url;

     @Deployment(testable = false)
     public static WebArchive war() {
         return ShrinkWrap.create(WebArchive.class)
                     .addAsWebInfResource(new ClassLoaderAsset("META-INF/openejb-jar.xml"), ArchivePaths.create("openejb-jar.xml"));

     public void checkWSDLIsDeployedWhereItIsConfigured() throws Exception {
         final String wsdl = IO.slurp(new URL(url.toExternalForm() + "tool/rot13?wsdl"));
         assertThat(wsdl, containsString("Rot13"));
