erm not to forgot... i'm also using jdk 1.4 for my java compiler...
anyone... someone.. plz...
I am also relatively new to JBoss, but I have managed to get web services working on JBoss4.0.5GA using jbossws-1.2.1GA. Do not try and use JDK1.6 as this has some SOAPMessage implementation issues with the jbossws-1.2.1GA.
Hope this helps.
