I have deployed a web service in AXIS under Tomcat and it works well. Now, I want to deploy the same service as a deployable application in production where I do not have AXIS. For this I created a war with lib and web.xml from AXIS. When I start Tomcat it comes up without any errors, but how do I deploy this application in Tomcat?
Do I need a server-config.wsdd?
What should go in the web.xml ( currently it is AXIS default web.xml).
Do I need to use java org.apache.axis.client.AdminClient for deployment? If yes, then how?

TIA
Chris

Just deploy the complete Axis web app, but
  • add the classes that make up your WS (in either the lib or the classes directory)
  • include the server-config.wsdd file that Axis created on your development machine (there may be some settings -like directories- that pertain to that particular machine, and which you need to adapt for the production server)
  • leave the web.xml file as it is

    Thanks Ulf.

    After expanding the war in my tomcat :
    I have the jar (TestWebService.jar) in my lib.
    Default AXIS server-config.wsdd and web.xml in my WEB-INF.
    Do I need to do any deployment ?

    How can I invoke this Service ?
    The url in my wsdl is
    <soap:address location="http://localhost:8080/axis/services/TestSoapBinding"/>

    However the URL of my deployed webapp is ( war is called TestWebService.war)
    http://localhost:8080/TestWebService.

    Should these match ?

    TIA
    Chris

    Yes, the URLs need to match, so the web app needs to be called "axis".

    And you need to use not the default Axis server-config.wsdd, but the one created by Axis after you have deployed your WS. Axis changes this file to include information for each WS that gets deployed.

    Thanks for the quick response. So is this acceptable ?

    <soap:address location="http://localhost:8080/axis/services/TestSoapBinding"/>

    URL of deployed webapp ( rename war to axis.war)
    http://localhost:8080/axis.

    And I don't understand what you mean by including the server-config.wsdd after it was deployed. Isn't it a part of the axis.war which has to be deployed ?

    TIA
    Chris

    If that's the address you used during development, then it should work in production. Of course, the server name needs to be adapted.

    And I don't understand what you mean by including the server-config.wsdd after it was deployed. Isn't it a part of the axis.war which has to be deployed ?



    Yes it is, but the file that needs to be included in axis.war is not the one that comes with the Axis distribution (which is how I interpreted your words "Default AXIS server-config.wsdd"), but the one that Axis created on your development machine after you deployed the WS (not axis itself). If you're in doubt which one to use, open it and take a peek it - the correct one should have plenty of stuff in it that relates to your WS.

    Thanks for your help Ulf. Things work now.

    I was already using the server-config.wsdd generated by a prior axis deployment. I renamed the war to axis.war and it deployed successfully.
