There seems to be some confusion as to how to use axis2 with geronimo.  Unfortunately I don't know what the correct (or perhaps better) way to do it is.

I have managed to get an axis2 webservice running under Geronimo but it involved deploying an axis2 war.

I added this as a geronimo-web.xml in the WEB-INF directory
<web-app xmlns="">

  <dep:environment xmlns:dep="">



I used the geronimo console to deploy the war, then went to localhost:8080/axis2 where I could deploy my aar file(s).

I'm using geronimo 2.1.3 with tomcat and axis2 1.4.1

I'm hoping to learn of a better/more standard way of using axis2 in geronimo (by watching this thread).

I've fond the console. Here is the list of installed web applications:


Nothing there suggests axis to my inexperienced eye. What should be seeing?
