Hi Michael,

As Matthias said, by default the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) creates 
it's own webapps directory in 
WORKSPACE/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0. You should 
find your exploded war there.

Also of note, the WTP 2.x Web service tools can generate Axis2 services. I 
don't know all of the specifics but you may be interested in these tools.

AW: eclipse and axis2

Hi Michael,

I am not using Axis2 for a long time, but I'm using eclipse for quite a 
while. So all other users, please correct me if I'm wrong.

What version of eclipse do you have installed? I assume it is a current 
version with Web Tools plugin. I installed the eclipse Version for Java EE 

The easiest way I encountered to setup an axis2 eclipse project is first 
telling eclipse where your Axis2 distribution is. Therefore set the Axis2 
Runtime location to your axis2 installation directory (in eclipse: Window 
-> Preferences -> Web Services -> Axis2 Preferences).
Now you can create a new dynamic web project with an axis2 nature which 
arranges all necessary libraries for you.

The other problem why eclipse does not deploy your axis2.war is probably 
the feature of eclipse that it does not modify your tomcat installation in 
standard mode. Therefore it does not deploy your webapps installed to this 
You can change this setting when you doubleclick on your server and change 
the "Server Locations" to "Use Tomcat Installation". That way your 
axis2.war should be deployed.

Axis2 Crew,

I am trying to use Eclipse to edit existing webservices that are in
the form of .aar files.

At this point I have tomcat successfully installed and working with 
The problem I am having is getting Axis2 installed and working with 

I downloaded Axis2 and built the axis2.war file.
I moved the axis2.war into webapps directory.

I expected the .war file to expand when I started tomcat.  I start
tomcat using the context sensitive menu in Eclipse.

Is there something special about the way Eclipse starts tomcat where
it does not expand a .war file?

Can anyone give me some hints about other things I may run into when
using axis2 with Eclipse?
