I have a web service deployed in WAS on one machine and I have used the WSDL file to generate Axis 1.1 client classes using the Axis WSDL2Java tool. I want to run a client app from another machine where the client will be a servlet running in Tomcat or possibly JRun. The generated code includes the usual *ServiceLocator and *ServiceBindingStub classes. If I wanted to instantiate these classes, say from inside a servlet (the client using the service) can these generated client classes be instantiated once in the init() of the servlet and used in a thread-safe manner?


Thanks in advance for any input.

It depends on whether your Webservice classes are thread safe or not. For example in Axis it is possible to specify the scope of service object - Application , Session and Request.

For WAS , please read the docs.

WAS server is not the issue. The question is again, running Axis client stub classes from within a simple servlet that is part of the client application talking to a web service running somewhere else, possibly WAS. The server end is not in question. It is the CLIENT side of the equation that may be at issue.

Thanks
