Well, the subject says it all!! I have been developing web services and deploying them on AXIS for a week now. I am only a week old to Web Services. Please tell me what WSAD is and the difference. Thank you very much. Cheers Lupo
WSAD stands for WebSphere Application Developer, which is IBM's Java/J2EE IDE. WSAD includes (among a million other things) some wizards for creating clients for existing web services and creating web services out of existing classes/components. Axis on the other hand is a deployment platform for web services, a SOAP engine if you will. Axis does come with some tools, such as wsdl2java and java2wsdl, but it's nowhere near to an integrated development environment.
