Error Validating Axis2 installation

Hello all! Been reading this site for years and have finally reached a point where I need to post something. I have been tasked with getting a web service up and running and chose to use Apache Axis. Here is my current setup:
Apache Axis2 1.3 (have also tried 1.4)
Tomcat 5.5.17
Win XP with latest service pack

I installed the Axis war and all the initial links work except for Validate.
When I try to launch HappyAxis.jsp to verify installation of Axis2 I get a NumberFormatException. I was initally getting a servlet error on startup but took out the servlet-api-2.3.jar that was in the axis2/web-inf/lib folder. Guess it was just conflicting with the Tomcat containers servlet-api.jar.

Here is a snippet from startup and then the exception:
...

I tried to deploy a test web service in the Tomcat webapps/axis2 folder (Calculator.jws that is on the apache website) but get the following error:
[INFO] Unable to parse request URL [axis2/Calculator.jws][/axis2/services]

I'm guessing this is related to the fact that the Axis2 installation wont validate but cant be sure.

Any thoughts on this?

thanks in advance for any assistance,
-Blake

Welcome to (posting to) JavaRanch.

I'll move the question to the web service forum where Axis is discussed.
