Thanks. Heh, that tutorials 3 years old. If you want to use it, I  
suppose you could download Geronimo 1.1.1 and give it a try. You'd  
also want to use a down-level version of Axis2 (I'd guess the tutoral  
was written for Axis2 1.0). There may be more up-to-date tutorials on  
DeveloperWorks, but have no idea where you'd find them.

As an alternative, I'd strongly recommend you take a look at

  Note that the tutorial assumes that you're using Eclipse -- this may  
or may not be desirable for you...

Try out the tutorial on our Wiki, mentioned above.

Geronimo Java EE servers have two distributions: Tomcat+Axis2 and Jetty 
+CXF. So, depending on which distribution you've downloaded, by  
default you'll be using either Axis2 or CXF for your Web Services  
implementation. Either is EE 5 compliant...
