    HELP! Can not deploy even the simplest web service

    Seth Levenson Newbie

      Hello -

      I'm very new to JBoss (done a lot of Tomcat), so please forgive the question if it is really basic. However, I am having the most frustrating time installing, configuring and deploying a WAR to JBoss. First, I'm using JBoss 4.2.2GA, WS 2.0.3GA, and Java 1.6 running on Windows.

      I have tried following the instructions both on the JBoss site and postings I've found online to get everything installed, but the instructions never seem to match exactly what I have. For example, trying to compile the test suite once I think I have the JBossWS installed. Either files are missing from the package I downloaded from the JBoss site, or the Ant task fails with errors. I have copied the various JaxB JARs to the endorsed LIB, etc.

      I think I have JBoss and JBossWS installed correctly, but I don't know for sure.

      I then wrote a simple web service in Eclipse (Ganymede) and tried to deploy it using Eclipse's built in deploy and by dropping the WAR in the deploy directory. When I do, I get the following error:

      16:51:34,796 ERROR [MainDeployer] Could not start deployment: file:/C:/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/default/deploy/EchoService.war

      I have been struggling with this for days, and I really don't know what I'm doing wrong or what state my environment is in. I would sincerely appreciate ANY help anyone can give - I am truly at the end of my rope.

      Thanks,
      Seth
