Does anyone knows all the steps require to lunch a Web Service using jax-rpc and Tomcat? I tried to use the Sun tutorial but something is missing they don't about some xml configuration files and how to create them. Anyone with URL to a JAX-RPC for dummies article.

i don't abt sun wbservices pack, but you can try apache axis + tomcat(or any servlet container). Its very easy to install, just like adding a new webapp provided by axis. Apache Axis is the best tool for jax-rpc style web services!. see http://ws.apache.org for more info.

The current Sun JAX-RPC service deployment process via the 1.4 reference implementation or the JWSDP (which binds you to tomcat) is laughable. I also don't care that much for the Axis implementation thought it certainly makes a mockery out of Sun (that said, a good deal of (if not all of)) axis is compliant with the sun jax-rpc spec -- they just make the process a hell of a lot cleaner.

The Sun JAX-RPC implementation in JWSDP FAILS in many aspects:
1. fast prototyping
2. interoperability
3. It's a real pain when it comes to adding your own (de)serializers
4. the examples won't run till you correct some silly mistakes in their config files.
It doesn't look like a typical sun product to me.
any comments ?
