Okay, I finally managed to deploy the ws on the clients system.
I created a small script which is run on the system and calls the local AdminService with a wsdd-File.
What's still confusing to me is the fact that I had to "enableRemoteAdmin" for the AdminService.
This is also the reason why I'm still looking for a smart way to get my ws deployt.
I'm sure, someone can help me....
Has anybody achieved to integrate the AXIS deployment in ANT ?
Main entry: desperation
1. hacking your web service into the server-config.wsdd file in order to get it deployed automatically
I am using an ant script to create a jar file that contains the session bean based rpc web service.
I am using an EJB 2.0 based session bean. I added on a javax.xml.rpc.Service derived interface and a Remote derived interface to the remote , home and bean classes.
assembled them into a directory from which I would jar . Added the class files and libs. Used the ant task axis-java2wsdl to output the wsdl file into the META-INF/wsdl directory of the jar file. ( Example on the axis site , I think)
Added a jaxrpc-mapping.xml . webservices.xml to the META-INF directory.
jared it all up from the directory that I assembled it in and copied it to the deploy / farm directory.
It works fine.
I can see the service / wsdl and make calls on it.
Hope this helps. Again this is an RPC / literal service.
