The following is my webservice:

package helloservice.endpoint;

import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.WebService;


@WebService
public class Hello {
private String message = new String("Hello, ");

@WebMethod
public String sayHello(String name) {
return message + name + ".";
}
}

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

My next action would be to determine which JAR contains the javax.jws package (with the WebService and WebMethod annotations) and determine whether that JAR is in the relevant class and/or build paths.

You haven't mentioned the SOAP stack that you are using. It's likely that you are using Axis 2.* but there are others that support JSR 181: Web Services Metadata for the Java(tm)Platform outside of JSR 224: JavaTM API for XML-Based Web Services (JAX-WS) 2.0.

hello,
the problem seemed to be related to what you mentioned.I was using J2ee SDK 1.4 and the sun application server 8 .I then tested it on the new J2ee SDK 5 and sun application server 9, & it did compiled.
have not worked in apache axis , is it easier to use and are ther any online tutorials like for the j2ee server and the Sun WSDP 2.


Thanks.

Well, annotations aren't supported until Java 5 (1.5). So strictly speaking J2EE 1.4 doesn't support it. That being said SUN did sneak the Java 5 Core into later versions of the J2EE SDK 1.4.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
