Im using Sun App Server 9. the server is installed in the local machine. for testing purposes client access from the local server is sufficient. I deployed a web service using net beans 5.5. My problem is that the WSDL file is generated (by server) uses a fully qualified domain name rather than localhost. for example it uses http://mlb.stdmlb.sliit.lk:8080. When i try to create a client using netbeans it tries to access the server using this address (the one in the WSDL) but the firewall denies access to port 8080. Therefore i want to use the server to use localhost rather than the long domai name. (at least http://mlb) Can anyone tell me how to configure this?
