Hi all
I created a webservice which i could successfully deploy. but when i tried to compile my client it is showing an error as follows.
-------------------- cannot access staticstub.HoroscopeInterface
bad class file: .\build\staticstub\HoroscopeInterface.class
class file has wrong version 49.0, should be 48.0
Please remove or make sure it appears in the correct subdirectory of the classpath.
HoroscopeInterface hface=(HoroscopeInterface)stub;
1 error
following are the pakages involved in my webservice

I have a directory named HoroscopeWS which contatins the following

1. config.xml
4. HoroscopeWebServiceWar.war
5. build (A directory)

build directory contains the following

1. HoroscopeWebService.wsdl
2. mapping.xml
3. horoscope(A package)

horoscope contains the following

1. HoroscopeImplementation.class
2. HoroscopeInterface.class

Following are the packages involved in the client application

I have a directory named static-stub which contatins the following

1. build(A directory)
2. config-wsdl.xml

Build contains

1. staticstub (A package)

staticstub contains
1. HoroscopeInterface.class
2. HoroscopeInterface_getSunSignTrait_RequestStruct.class
3. HoroscopeInterface_getSunSignTrait_RequestStruct_SOAPSerializer.class
4. HoroscopeInterface_getSunSignTrait_ResponseStruct.class
5. HoroscopeInterface_getSunSignTrait_ResponseStruct_SOAPBuilder.class
6. HoroscopeInterface_getSunSignTrait_ResponseStruct_SOAPSerializer.class
7. HoroscopeInterface_Stub.class
8. HoroscopeWebService.class
9. HoroscopeWebService_Impl.class
10. HoroscopeWebService_SerializerRegistry.class

What might be the reason for the error

Thanks in advance

Did you use Java 5 to compile that class, and are now using Java 1.4 to run it? I think class file version 49 is the one used by Java 5, while 48 is the one Java 1.4 uses.

Then maybe you used compiler options for different language versions (i.e. same javac, but emitted code for 1.3 and 1.4, or 1.4 and 1.5). That message always means the class files aren't for a language version the JVM was expecting to see.
