Axis2 Service Archiver Eclipse Wizard Weird Issues

I am facing a weird problem. After writing a java class that i want to be exported as a webservice, I click the "New->Other->Axis2 Wizards" and then click the "Axi2 Service Archiver" and nothing happens. If i click again for the second time it takes me to the next window but all i see is the title and the bottom ( back, next, cancel buttons ). I cannot see anything in the middle area of the window. Here I expect to see the option to select the path to include the class files etc.

Any help to point what i am doing wrong is appreciated.

To add more..

Sometimes it goes as far as "set the service xml file.." window, where I select to automatically generate the xml file. After this, when click "next", there would be no change.

Other times, I would go as far as where i can put the service name and classname. After enteing the classname and servicename and i hit load, it would say it cannot find the class. ("classnotfound exception").

I am still digging into this..and i am not sure why it cannot find the class. There are no packages ( using the default packge ).

Any pointers appreciated..

Hello ,
i was having the same issue. i deleted the folder ~\eclipse-jee-3_3\.metadata\.plug-ins\ Axis2_Service_Archiver_1.3.0 and it resolved the problem. This folder seems to have the bundle responsable for the Dialog_settings, and it gets generated by the Axis2 Service Archiver plug-in.
Try to do the same.
I hope i was able to help.

Hi !
Thank you Carine for this solution.

It works but when I try to generate the archive, I'll always got the bug.
So, I can't deploy my webservice.
I'm using Hibernate3 and Spring frameworks for this project.

Did you find an explaination to this bug ?
