Is anyone involved in converting legacy COBOL to WEB SERVICES ?

Any links would be appreciated.

Axis is basically a J2EE web application so you need a web container to run Axis web services (Apache Tomcat, for example). Of course you can use an Eclipse plugin to deploy your .war to a web container.

As you mentioned WSAD.
WSAD 5.1 (earlier versions not) uses axis internally and offers some nice tools for webservices development and testing.

Thanks Axel. I may be using WBIMB instead but not Web Services.
apparently they each do the same thing.
