Using wscompile

Hello I am trying to use jaxrpc to generate stubs for a WSDL file. But when I type wscompile in my DOS prompt, the error I get is that wscompile is not a recognized internal or external command. Please help, how can I use wscompile and I thought that wscompile was part of JAX-RPC which in turn should be part of the JDK. I am using Tiger (1.5) thanks.

wscompile is in <jwsdp-home>/jaxrpc/bin. You can only run it if the DOS window 'knows' where it is. So, you have the three usual choices:

  • Give the full command name (i.e., something like 'C:\common\dev\jwsdp-1.5\jaxrpc\bin\wscompile)
  • Move into the jaxrpc/bin directory, and then run the command.
  • Add the jaxrpc/bin directory to your PATH environment variable.

    I agree. Here's the link:
