    Webserivces With Apache Axis Continued...

    In continuation with my previous post,this post explores various ways of deploying a webservice using Apache Axis and how stubs can be generated with tools provided in Apache Axis.

    Deploying A Webservice:
    Web services can be deployed in axis in two ways
    -JWS (Java Web Service) Files - Instant Deployment
    -Custom Deployment - Introducing WSDD

    JWS Deployment:
    -Copy the *.java file into your web directory, and rename it *.jws.
    -You're done!
    You should now be able to access the service at the following URL (assuming your Axis web application is on port 8080):
    Axis automatically locates the file, compiles the class, and converts SOAP calls correctly into Java invocations of your service class

    Custom Deployment - Introducing WSDD:
    Axis uses *.wsdd files to deploy Web services. This is a Axis specific format for deploying custom web services.

    Steps to Deploy a Class File as Webservice:
    -Create the class file.
    -Write a deploy.wsdd file for that class
    -Run AdminClient as follows :
    java org.apache.axis.client.AdminClient -lhttp://localhost:8080/axis deploy.wsdd
    -Done !
    Now you'll be able to view this web service wsdl file at the path

    Generating Stubs For A Web Service:
    -Run following command at the command prompt
    java org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java -v -p -o
    Here is an exmaple
    java org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java -v -p com.punsoft.ws.client.generated

    http://localhost:9080/WSAxis/services/HelloWorldEJBService?wsdl–o javasource/com/punsoft/ws/client/generated
