Subject Re: [AXIS2]: axiom jars not found when moving from axis2-1.6.1 to axis2-1.6.2
Date Sat, 30 Mar 2013 15:54:15 GMT
The code that triggers this error looks for resources called
"META-INF/axiom.xml" in the classpath. The message indicates that for
some reason, it can't find the one included in axiom-impl-x.y.z.jar.
You need to check why in your particular case, the class loader
wouldn't find that resource.
