Subject Re: AxisServlet NullPointerException
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2007 19:29:48 GMT
JIRA AXIS2-2674 was logged when I first came across this problem.
All the details are in there but I have not yet attached the WAR file since Axis2 is included
within my web application.  This makes the WAR file very large due to all the included JAR
files.  The WAR file is about 12 MB.

You are correct on the attribute value.  The correct value is "qualified" and not "required"
- sorry for the confusion.

would be great... Also provide details about your environment too...

is it elementFormDefault="required" or
elementFormDefault="qualified"... I'm not sure whether
elementFormDefault="required" is allowed...
