Hi Keeran,

Try putting activation.jar in the same directory (common/lib).

Hi all,

I've been searching through the user archives for a solution to my
problem but haven't found anything so I hope you don't mind me mailing
this out.

I have put the axis webapp into the webapps dir of my tomcat
installation (tomcat4 debian package). I copied all of the jars from the
axis package into /tomcatroot/common/lib as I wasn't sure what was going
on with happyaxis.jsp.

The happyaxis jsp reports the following:

Found SAAJ API (javax.xml.soap.SOAPMessage) at an unknown location Found
JAX-RPC API (javax.xml.rpc.Service) at an unknown location

Error: could not find a dependency of class
org.apache.axis.transport.http.AxisServlet from file axis.jar Axis will
not work See The root cause was: null This
can happen e.g. if org.apache.axis.transport.http.AxisServlet is in the
'common' classpath, but a dependency like activation.jar is only in the
webapp classpath.

Found Jakarta-Commons Discovery
(org.apache.commons.discovery.Resource) at an unknown location Found
Jakarta-Commons Logging (org.apache.commons.logging.Log) at an unknown
location Found Log4j (org.apache.log4j.Layout) at an unknown location
Found IBM's WSDL4Java ( at an
unknown location Found JAXP implementation
(javax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory) at an unknown location Found
Activation API (javax.activation.DataHandler) at an unknown location ===

axis.jar seems to be in the correct location (ie, from default
distribution as well as /common/lib)

In the tomcat localhost logs there is a stack trace starting with :

2004-09-27 19:15:25 StandardContext[/axis]: Servlet /axis threw load()
javax.servlet.ServletException: Error instantiating servlet class

I'm not sure where to start hunting for the cause of this problem -
please could someone help?

Many thanks,
