    If I deploy more than one webservice I get "Multiple context

    Rick Reumann Newbie

      I can deploy a simple webservice and everything works fine. If II create another webservice in a similar manner and deploy it, I end up with a "Multiple context root not supported" error.

      This is very frustrating since I see nothing about this issue in the users guide.

      Here was an example of an initial web service I was trying to deploy (which works fine, until I try to deploy another webservice using the same approach):

      @SOAPBinding(parameterStyle = SOAPBinding.ParameterStyle.WRAPPED)
      public interface Echo {
      @WebMethod String testEcho(String s);

      public class EchoBean {
      public String testEcho(String s) {
      return s;

      If I deploy a similar webservice like the above, I'll get the Multiple context root not supported error. Am I doing something unorthodox or is this a bug? My EJB3 book and the examples that come with the jboss patch here: http://docs.jboss.org/ejb3/app-server/tutorial/installing.html show examples like I'm doing above.

      There is something related to this in jira http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBWS-1622 but I can't seem to get the concept of @WebContext working correctly (I also don't see why I should even need to use a non-standard JBoss annotation to do something that should be standard.)

      WITHOUT adding a @WebContext I'll end up with a wsdl location like:


      If I try to declare a @WebContext I won't get the multiple context root error, but it changes the wsdl path to a path that it can't find. For example if I give it a path:

      @WebContext(contextRoot="/EDSF-tests", secureWSDLAccess=false)

      I end up with a wsdl URL:


      Which doesn't point to the wsdl anymore.

      Can someone give me some pointers about what I'm doing wrong? There must be a reason others have not run into this as well since I don't think I'm creating my webservices in a unique way.
