Hi -

I am new to webservices. I am using axis 1.2RC1 with tomcat 5.5.3. I followed the instructions and copied the webapps/axis folder into tomcat/webapps and I was able to load the /axis/index.html.

Now, I am not able to do the same even after re-booting the system.

Can some one please let me know if I am missing something?

Does your webapps directory have "webapps/axis" directory ? Did you step in the 'axis' directory and see what the contents were ? Create a new file like test.html and then invoke it. If you invoke HTML , Tomcat should manage it as it does not involve any Axis libraries, its a simple WebServer request. If that does not work. Go to "tomcat\conf" directory and in server.xml try to add theis line

<Context path="/axis" docBase="axis" debug="0"/>

The Webapp folder should be called 'axis' (lowercase) .

Hi -

Thanks Pradeep for getting back on my problem. I had resolved it by placing Servlet.jar from the tomcat folder in the jdk1.5/jre
I am not sure what the relation is..but it works like a charm !

Thanks again!!
