NetBeans Web Service client attempt

I have NetBeans 6.7 on Tomcat 6.0.20.
I have built regular Web apps with NetBeans and Tomcat 6.0.20, but now I want to build my first Web Service client using the demo that comes with NetBeans called StockQuoteClient.

After I hit the Run command I get the following failed message:

Do I need to load something to make this work?

Maybe make sure you have JAX-WS 2.1 added as a library. Get into your project properties and click Add Library, you should see the jax-ws2.1 library there. Hope that helps.

Please advise.

parsing WSDL...

Please advise.

Are you running this locally (laptop or desktop)? If you deployed this to another box then it's likely the environment changed. That could mean that your service is looking for the wsdl on the c drive and if you deployed to Linux then there is no c drive. In which case you need to put the wsdl in a place where your deployed code can retrieve it.

I could be way off too.

I had a similar problem and solved it by putting the wsdl on a different box I could connect to. In my case, the wsdl came from a COBOL web service that didn't have a mechanism for publishing the wsdl. So I had initially put it on my c drive and ran into problems when I deployed to a Linux box. My solution was to put the COBOL wsdl on another box and then reference the wsdl from there. I also had some proxy issues that, thankfully, my server support team helped me hurdle. I should also mention that the app I was working on was a daisy chained web service. That is to say that a front end client connected to my web service that connected to a Legacy (COBOL) web service.

If you are using an example, it doesn't seem like it should be this difficult. Wish I could be of more help and give you a better concrete answer.

Have you installed Metro in Tomcat, as described on this webpage: https://metro.dev.java.net/2.0/ ?
Basically, what it does is copy some JARs into the Tomcat installation.
After having installed Metro, developing web services in NetBeans and deploying to Tomcat is identical to when deploying to GlassFish.
Best wishes!
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
