OK, I'm about a year behind the rest of ya'all, but I actually have the SOAP Monitor working!
Here's what I have learned ... (assumes Axis installed properly)
1) When compiling the SOAPMonitorApplet.java file, make certain that the resulting class files end up in the .../webapps/axis directory (I have a subdirectory called "monitors" where I do the build and deploy) RESULT --> applet displays @ http://localhost:8080/axis/SOAPMonitor
2) Undeploy yourService - the one that you wish to monitor (assumes prior successful deployment)
Not sure if it matters, but I would suggest that the SOAPMonitorService always be deployed FIRST.
6) Undeploying the SOAPMonitorService. Not sure if this was my mistake, but the undeploy-monitor.wsdd should specify <service name="SOAPMonitorService"/> NOT <service name="urn:SOAPMonitorService"/>
This caused my server-config.wsdd to become corrupted. which leads me to item 7) Perform frequent backups of the .../webapps/axis/WEB-INF/server-config.wsdd file as you are learning and developing/updating services. This way, you can always recover to a working version (you will need to bounce your application server (Tomcat in my case) before starting fresh.
Hope this helps whomever is behind me.
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
