Hi all,

I am running a sample webservice over apache axis on a linux platform. I am getting the following error. Can somebody plz tell me where I am going wrong? Are there some environment setup issues? Thanking you in advance.

- Unable to find required classes (javax.activation.DataHandler and javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart). Attachment support is disabled.
Exception in thread "main" AxisFault
faultCode: {http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/}Server.userException
faultString: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /var/lib/tomcat5/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/jwsClasses/HelloWorldService.java (No such file or directory)

Normally this error shouldnt interrupt your thing. It pops up in the logs for me all the time. Anyway, to remove it, set the classpath as follows
javax.activation.DataHandler - Activation.jar from Sun's site
javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart - j2ee.jar (if you're using Websphere) or weblogic.jar (if using BEA weblogic)

Hi Tom,

Thank u so much for the timely help. The missing jars did not make any impact on the application. The axis error I was getting was due to a missing class file. For a .jws file in /axis dir, it expects a .class file in /axis/WEB-INF/jwsClasses. Putting the class file in that directory, solves that problem.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
