I need to write some script to auto deploy a webservice in an Axis(1_1)container running on TOMCAT 5.0.28. I found an example using AdminClient and deploy.wsdd (http://ws.apache.org/axis/java/user-guide.html#InstallingAxisAndUsingThisGuide). But for the example given (MyService) here, looks like the class files are already copied to Axis (webapps\axis\WEB-INF\classes\samples\userguide\example3). AdminClient and deploy.wsdd just alter the content of webapps\axis\WEB-INF\server-config.wsdd file. By following this example, I was able to deploy the web service. But the condition is that I have to manually copy my jar files over the Axis container. But what I need is an automatic script. In that sense, I just need to have my jar files and deploy.wsdd, by running this script against TOMCAT/AXIS, I should be able to deploy the service. I don't need to have the access of physical location of TOMCAT/AXIS. Does anybody know how to do it? Thanks.
