Subject Hello, and an issue
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2001 19:59:40 GMT
Hello axis-dev'ers.

Thanks very much to all of you working on Axis.  My work as a consultant
these days is leaning ever more in the web services least
that's where I'm trying to lead my clients!!  I've also been doing Java
full-time for about four years, and would certainly like to see a reliable
Java SOAP implementation.  Looks like you all are well on the way.  I've
used Apache SOAP and appreciate the improvements you're aiming at with Axis.

I am currently in the process of reviewing the Axis source, just to learn
more about the project.  I may be in a position to assist on the project in
some way...perhaps starting with docs or something.  I'd like to get a good
understanding of the codebase first, then perhaps ask how I might best

Now for my issue...  I have successfully checked out the source, and run the
"compile" and "dist" targets in build.xml.  I get successful builds on both.
Following the install guide, I copied the axis-1_0/webapps/axis directory to
[tomcat-home]/webapps, and copied my xerces 1.4.3 jar file into the axis
webapp's lib directory.  I can hit the axis servlet just fine
(http://localhost/axis/servlet/AdminServlet).  However, when I try to deploy
the echo sample using this (executed from axis-1_0\samples\echo):

java -cp
-lhttp://localhost/axis/servlet/AxisServlet deploy.xml

I get this on stdout/stderr:

Processing file: deploy.xml
<ns1:Fault xmlns:ns1="">
   <ns1:faultstring>The Axis engine couldn't find a target service to
invoke! targetService is AdminService</ns1:faultstring>

I searched the mailing list archives and google, to no avail.  Apologies if
this is a newbie question that's documented somewhere.  Can anyone help?

I'm running tomcat 3.2.2, Ant 1.4, Xerces 1.4.3, JDK 1.3.1...all on Win2K.

TIA and best regards,
