    First webservice

    Siavash Renani Newbie

      I'm trying to create a webservice. I followed the tutorials at http://www.javabeat.net/articles/40-creating-webservice-using-jboss-and-eclipse-europa-1.html.

      The server would not run the war file created by following these steps. I've debugged all day but could not find the reason for it. What I figured out was that the WSDL file was not created. Strangely, the index.html, a static web page I've created for test would not run either.

      In the book "JBoss in Action", chapter 9 I read that wsprovide is the program used to generate wsdls and it could be used manually. I attempted to do so and I think I figured out where it all fails. The message I got in Dos prompt is:

      Error: Could not generate. (use --show-traces to see full traces)
      java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1
       at java.lang.String.substring(String.java:1768)

       at org.jboss.wsf.spi.tools.cmd.WSProvide.main(WSProvide.java:76)

      The java code I'm trying to generate wsdl for is:

      import javax.jws.WebService;
      import javax.jws.WebMethod;
      public class Greeting
       public String greetClient(String userName)
       return "Greeting " + userName + "! Have a nice day...";

      I'm certain that there is an error, not perhaps in the code it self but maybe with my configuration of eclipse (or is it JBoss)?

      Would be grateful for any help!
