    Setting up Axis

    John Tsimikas Newbie

      For sometime now, I have been using Jboss 3.0.3 w/Axis
      and everything has been working fine.

      I installed xml-axis-10 and then
      created an axis.war directory in JBoss under the "deploy"
      subdirectory as stated in the instructions.

      In 3.0.6 (and some older versions), it seems that I can use just do the following:
      ./run.sh -c all

      and this will start the axis service automatically?

      This means I don't need to download Axis separately.

      After running 3.0.6 with these switches, I try to go the following URL

      http://localhost:8080/axis
      Normally, I get a page which lets me view the deployed web services and check the status of the server.

      Instead I now get a directory listing.

      Anyways, has JBOSS w/ Axis changed much from 3.0.3 to 3.0.6?
      Is there a document that explains the differences?
      As far as deploying services, etc.

      Thank you,
      John

          Can anyone answer the following: (these questions are in reference to Jboss 3.0.6)

          1. Is the jboss-net.sar the archive for SOAP in JBOSS.3.0.6?

          2. Does this jboss-net.sar replace axis.war (this was used in previous version of JBOSS) or are both items required?

          3. Does JBoss 3.0.6 installation contain all the necessary SOAP components, or do I need to install
          additional components?

          4. Is axis.jar required in the lib directory.

          I installed Axis according to the directions I obtained from ammai.com:

          Apache Axis 1.0 Tutorial:
          http://www.ammai.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=6&page=1

          And this works just fine under 3.0.6, however, it seems like the SOAP piece has been integrated into JBOSS and that this was unnecessary step.

          Can someone shed some light on this.

            Here is what I have found out:
            1. Yes, jboss-net.sar is the one for SOAP and WebServices;
            2. Yes, it replaces ... I have never dealt with axis.war, but my JBoss 3.0.4 and 3.0.6 both work eithout it;
            3. I had to download axis and install it on bundled tomcat, but I think this my be not necessary if you do not want to upgrade Axis;
            4. Yeah, as well as tt-bytecode.jar and Xerces (prefered the 2nd version) jars also;

            We could try to install it on your 3.0.6 system without installing on tomcat. DO you use Jetty or Tomcat?
