For the life of me, I can't make a single JBoss WS tutorial work. I've tried the normal JBoss tutorial ( chap12 ) and it seems to omit describing elements of the development enviroment crucial to working the tutorial. Trying to move to JBossWS 1.2.1 meant that documention on using servlet based WS was dropped. Downgrading to JBossWS 1.0.4 has left me with the most inexplicable errors when trying to build the first example "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jboss/ws/tools/WSTools". Your idea of what this means is probably no better than mine.
I've been pounding my head against this stuff all day and night.
I've tried using the JBoss 4.0 Official Guide, but it too went off the rails in trying to build the first example. The examples downloaded did not match those in the book.
It's too bad that implementing JBoss is so much like compiling a custom kernel. The difference seems to be that there's more accurate documentation regarding kernel compilation.
What is the recommended path for someone new to Java WS to learn by example how to build servlet RPC style WS with JBoss?
