Subject Anyone have any build files for REAL Soap web services?
Date Tue, 06 May 2003 12:04:10 GMT
Hi all,

Been messing around with various ways to deploy a web service, using 
either Apache SOAP or Apache Axis.
The problems I've found are :
Axis : Great if you're developing Mickey Mouse web services (*.jws are 
single java files) but no way to deploy a real *.war application comprising
several external libs etc. All documentation assumes you're writing a 
HelloWorld web service! Does no-one else on the planet use packaging for 
their web services?
Soap: The org.apache.soap.server.ServiceManagerClient class nicely 
deploys the files you need, but you still need to manually copy your 
jars into the soap installation directory, and
this requires a Tomcat restart every time you update your service.

Does anyone have any pointers to some other secret method to deploy web 
services from a war file using Soap or Axis?

Many thanks.
