    java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: setProperty must be

    Hans Meier Newbie


      Im trying to develop a simple webservice with "EJB 3.0" and a simple client.

      I use:
      - jboss-4.2.2.GA
      - Eclipse

      My two Server classes:

      package myserv;
      import javax.ejb.Remote;
      import javax.ejb.Stateless;
      import javax.jws.WebService;
      @WebService(endpointInterface = "myserv.ICalculatorBean")
      public class CalculatorBean
       public int add(int a, int b)
       return a+b;
       public int subtract(int a, int b)
       return a - b;

      package myserv;
      import java.rmi.Remote;
      import javax.jws.WebMethod;
      import javax.jws.WebService;
      import javax.jws.soap.SOAPBinding;
      import javax.jws.soap.SOAPBinding.Style;
      @SOAPBinding(style = Style.RPC)
      public interface ICalculatorBean extends java.rmi.Remote
       public int add(int a, int b);
       public int subtract(int a, int b);

      My Client class:

      package myclient;
      import java.net.URL;
      import javax.xml.namespace.QName;
      import javax.xml.rpc.Service;
      import javax.xml.rpc.ServiceFactory;
      import myserv.*;
      public class Client {
       public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
       System.out.println("Starting Test Client");
       URL url = new URL("");
       QName qname = new QName(
       System.out.println("Creating a service Using: \n\t"
       + url + " \n\tand " + qname);
       ServiceFactory factory = ServiceFactory.newInstance();
       Service remote = factory.createService(url, qname);
       System.out.println("Obtaining reference to a proxy object");
       ICalculatorBean proxy = (ICalculatorBean) remote.getPort(ICalculatorBean.class);
       System.out.println("Accessed local proxy: " + proxy);
       System.out.println("9+8= " + proxy.add(9, 8));

      I get this Error:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.reflect.UndeclaredThrowableException
      at $Proxy0.add(Unknown Source)

      The error is thrown in this line:
      System.out.println("9+8= " + proxy.add(9, 8));

      - I compiled both server and client with Java 5.0
      - I did copy the following files into /lib/endorsed:
      - jboss-saaj.jar
      - jboss-jaxws.jar
      - jboss-jaxrpc.jar
      - jaxb-api.jar
      - jaxb-impl.jar

      My server uses everything from \server\all\lib.
      My client uses everything from \client and \lib\endorsed.

      What more can I do?
