Subject RE: question deploying Axis under my own Webapp
Date Tue, 10 Dec 2002 20:42:06 GMT
Hi Ben,

My service is invoked using an HTML form located at:

within that form I can specify my SOAP router (used to be
http://host:8080/soap/servlet/rpcrouter) which is currently:

What confuses me when running my webapp and Axis side-by-side is that Axis
throws many exceptions if I don't copy the myapp/WEB-INF/classes structure
over into the axis/WEB-INF/classes directory and place any shared libraries
at least in the $APPSERVER_HOME/shared/lib directory if not in the
axis/WEB-INF/lib directory. I understand this is part of the 'normal'
installation, but then what is the "Advanced Installation: adding Axis to
your own Webapp" section of the installation instructions talking about?

To me, this seems like I'm practically installing my webapp into Axis when
I'd really prefer Axis to run at least beside my webapp if not underneath

Opening the top URL above works.
