Hi,

I am new to web services and I have read a lot of articles related to web services. Web services can be deployed in the following application servers:

1. Axis and Tomcat Server
2. WebLogic Server

WebLogic 8.1 has new features for web services. So my question is, why use Axis with Tomcat when I can use WebLogic? Has anyone deployed a simple web service in WebLogic 8.1? Can u send me sample examples? Ur help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Abi

Weblogic and Axis are both major players in the IT market and you probably wont go far wrong implementing web services on either of them.

However, AXIS is fast becoming the standard, and is the same SOAP engine in IBM's WebSphere!

Tomcat is Servelt container implementation
Weblogic is EJB(J2EE) Container implementation

Weblogic server is meant for running high-end applications like EJB optionally with webservices.
Tomcat server is for running JSP/Servlet based applications optionally with webservices using Axis.

http://ws.apache.org/axis got the samples from simple to complex webservices for Tomcat + Axis

http://e-docs.bea.com/wls/docs81/webserv/ has the setup and getting started tips for using webservices with weblogic.

Hope thats help.

Hi all,

Thanks for the response. Axis is easier to use and moreover its open source.

Thanks once again,
Abi

Use Tomcat to generate HTML content. For Java to Java communication use Iris, it's 10x faster that XML based protocol implementations:
