I am using axis2-1.5.1, jdk 1.6, eclipse 3.5, and Axis2_Codegen_Wizard_1.3.0 and windows xp.
I used Axis2_Codegen_Wizard_1.3.0 to generate the client stub and proxy.
I get the following error when I tried to call the web service:
In the dos-prompt, I get the following error message:
[INFO] Listening on port 8080
[ERROR] The service cannot be found for the endpoint reference (EPR) 127.0.0.1/a

I had this problem too with my Axis2 webservices (reported by a BizTalk client). I heavily googled this and didn't find a solution.
Then we saw the strange thing, that the Axis2 generated WSDL (which was the basic information for the BizTalk client), listed a wrong port for the endpoint at element "soap:address location=...". It listed a port, that was used by another Tomcat instance on the same machine, whereas the Axis2 Tomcat was configured (in server.xml) on another port. Then the cause of the problem was clear: the configuration file "axis2.xml" (from axis2/WEB-INF/conf) contained the default ports. So all we had to do was to correctly configure these.
