    metro distro issues

      Seriously I am having some major issues, why is all jax-ws support lost when I install the metro distro.

          You need to supply more information about the problems you encounter. Post some example code, a detailed problem description, then someone might be able to help you.

            As far as the code goes, its simple anything with in the javax.jws.* namespace is not recognized. (this didn't happen until I installed JBossWS - metro) So for example the basic @WebService() is not recognized, and the import for it cannot be resolved. In its place, netbeans 6.0 (my IDE of choice) tells me that I can import org.jboss.web.WebService to fix the problem, I'm not sure that would be the correct thing to do. Also, when I try to update my web service, my project can no longer find WsImport. So basically like I said before, as soon as I install metro, I loose all jax-ws support. I figured out why this is happening, I compared the classpath with native ws and with metro. And I found the differences, jbossws-client. jar, jboss-jaxrpc.jar, jboss-jaxws.jar have all been removed. On top of all of this, I can no longer build a web service from the top down, because the project can't resolve any of the jax-ws/jaxb namespaces it tells netbeans that the runtime doesn't support the framework and it makes the suggestion that I need to download something for jaxrpc support. So with that you can get a sense of my frustration. I apologized for the non-detailed description of my issues. If there is anything in particular that I need to post to try and get the ball rolling on this let me know.

              Well, the jars are different. You cannot rely on the same set of jars across stacks. Metro just does use different ones. But take a look at the build.xml that drives the samples that ship with the distro. It contains classpath references that you can reflect to build a new netbeans setup for metro.
