Subject [Axis2] Proposed CodegenToolReference.html fixes
Date Tue, 28 Nov 2006 18:11:18 GMT
I believe that the documentation at 
needs a couple of updates in order to be accurate for Axis2 version 1.1 
(which is the latest as far as I know).  :)  I write here in the hope 
that this is the place to send such proposed documentation updates.

First, a minor proposed correction.  In the 'Example build File Using 
the Custom Ant Task', an attribute named 'generateserverxml' is used in 
the 'codegen' element.  This attribute is not supported by <codegen> -- 
'generateservicexml' is supported, however, and appears to do what is 
intended by the example.

Now, a more significant and important proposed set of corrections.  :)  
The list of JARs needed in the taskdef classpath for 'codegen' does not 
seem to be up to date, or sufficient (for Axis 1.1).  First (minor 
typo), there are no JAR files named axis-*.jar in Axis2 1.1's lib/ 
directory.  Perhaps this should read "axis2-*.jar"?  Second (another 
minor typo), axis-wsdl4j-1.2.jar is not distributed with the latest 
Axis2.  wsdl4j-1.6.1.jar _is_, however.  Third (another minor typo), 
stax-api-1.0.jar is not distributed with Axis2 1.1 -- stax-api-1.0.1.jar is.

Fourth, finally, and more importantly, additional JARs are needed, at 
least by me, in order to build my Java skeleton and stub code from my 
WSDL 1.1 file.  Specifically,
    - commons-logging-1.1.jar,
    - neethi-2.0.jar,
    - XmlSchema-1.2.jar,
    - activation-1.1.jar,
    - axiom-api-1.2.jar,
    - axiom-impl-1.2.jar, and
    - wstx-asl-3.0.1.jar
are needed.

Could someone more knowledgeable (I've only been using Axis for a couple 
of weeks or so, with half of that time in Axis1 land) please confirm 
that my comments hold some validity?  :)

I hope that this email is helpful in improving the quality of Axis2 1.1+.
