Subject RE: Deploying a web service
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2006 17:17:18 GMT
After incorporating a <java> call to the Admin class in my build.xml, I now have
a correct server-config.wsdd file being created.  And calling my webservice via
a browser does return a SOAP message.  However...the result is always -3!

            <addReturn xsi:type="xsd:int">-3</addReturn>

Since my implementation class looks like the following, I'd expect the result to
be the sum of my two query string parameters:

public class Math
    public int add(int x, int y)
        return x + y;

I do see some hardcoded -3's in the Axis source, but haven't figured out from
that what I'm doing wrong.  And since I can't seem to find a way to search the
archives and Google for "-3", I'm not getting any help that way.

Does anyone have an idea about what I'm still doing wrong and/or what a -3 might

I am somewhat of a noob myself, but I am starting to "get it". You need to look
for "embedded+axis" when you are searching. I found a couple of references for you:

Here is the install guide on it:
I think this line is pertinent for you:
Run the Axis AdminClient against your own webapp, instead of Axis, by changing
the URL you invoke it with.

I am just curious, why do you need to add axis to your app instead of the opposite?

I must be missing something obvious, but even after checking the list archives,
etc., I still can't seem to get this to work. Here's my situation:

I have an existing webapp being deployed to Tomcat 5.0.19 as a .WAR. I'm trying
to add a test web service to it (the Math sample delivered with Axis 1.3). At
this point, I've done the following:

(1) Added the Axis servlet to my app's web.xml:

Apache-Axis Servlet

(2) Mapped web service requests to the servlet:


(3) Updated my build.xml to use and to
generate what I think are all the correct files into my .WAR: Add.class,, Add.wsdl,,,,, deploy.wsdd, undeploy.wsdd.

(4) Included all the required .JARs in Tomcat/common/lib and my webapp's
WEB-INF/lib directory.

The AxisServlet seems to be running, but when I try to hit
"http://localhost/mywebapp/wsapi/Add", I get back:

AXIS error
No service is available at this URL

I feel like my webapp hasn't really "deployed" the web service, but I'm not sure
what I need to to to make that happen automatically as part of my webapp's Ant
build/deploy process. 

Do I still need to include the AdminServlet somehow? Obviously, my goal is to
put as little of Axis in my webapp as possible, and I thought I got that by
simply including the .JARs, but not happyaxis.jsp, etc.

Thanks in advance.
