Subject Re: websphere 7.0 JAXWS webservice deployed in tomcat 6.0.32 not working
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 18:07:16 GMT
Thank You Chris for your time and help.

I understand that I need WebServices Engine like AXIS2 or METRO or Apache

Here is the deal.

Websphere7 uses AXIS2 as the WebServices engine.

I have my Webservices class with Annotation of @WebService.   This is then
compiled to WEB-INF\classes folder.  Then the war is built.  Remember uptil
this point I have not made any web.xml changes.

Then I deploy the war file (using ear) to a Websphere7 installation.  Once
the deployment of war happens, something inside of AXIS2 is processing all
the annotation based classes and dynamically generating the web.xml and
processing the WebServices.

What is the equivalent of that in Tomcat7.  Tomcat7 can handle Servlet3
based classes.   So I thought it should have the mechanism to process
Annotated Webservices as well.
