However, when I startup SOAPUI version 3.6.1, import the WSDL, set the endpoint for example to http://localhost:8080/eightball/eightball, and then try to submit a request to that endpoint, I get the following error.
Fri Nov 05 19:49:05 GMT 2010:INFO:Error getting response for [eightballSoap11.eightBall:Request 1]; java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect
With the 1st example I used Eclipse Helios to develop and publish the WebService to Tomcat. Using SOAPUI in this scenario worked and I got the expected Responses back.
When I exported the same project to a WAR file and deployed on Tomcat, I got the SOAPUI connection exception ?!?!
