WSWS3142E:Error: Could not find Web services engine.

Hi

When I try to access the webservice deployed on WAS application server,Iam getting the error : "Error 500: WSWS3142E: Error: Could not find Web services engine."

I did a google search for this error and in most of the site,it says that the xerces.jar should be there in the server classpath to prevent this error.I have got the xerces.jar in the server classpath but still Iam getting the error.Does anyone knows the reason for this error?.

Also,Do I need to have WebService.jar in my ear?

Any help to solve this issue is appreciated.

Thanks and Regards
Shiv
