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. [ August 20, 2005: Message edited by: M Streit ]
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.
