Doing SOAP and Rest Services without changing code

I do not know what to think about Netrifex from Proxisoft ...
Netrifex adds web services to existing Java applications using a point-and-click browser interface.
As stated on their website the product enables users to:

  • Create web service APIs in a fraction of the time and cost required by traditional programming methods.
  • Add SOAP and REST services to applications without modifying their code.
  • Start, stop, add, modify, and delete web services without shutting down or disrupting production applications.
  • Create and administer web services through a simple point-and-click user interface. Common use-cases require no programming.
  • Generate web service interfaces automatically for applications built from common frameworks such as Apache Struts.
  • Implement stateful web services that are aware of user sessions and other types of application state.
  • Web-service-enable applications without source code (e.g., third party products, libraries). Netrifex does not need to read or re-compile source code.

Netrifex adds web services to stand-alone Java programs and applications running in Java EE containers. Netrifex works with Java 1.4.2 and higher. Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems are supported. Supported containers include Apache Tomcat and Oracle WebLogic Server. WebSphere, JBoss.
Licensing is made on CPU basis.
The question is why using such a tool? Any idea?
