I've just started to learn web-services. I did some preliminary research (reading) and now...coding.
Since I've been using eclipse, I decided to look for a plug-in that will facilitate my work. I found this tutorial which turns to be a nightmare because of "InvocationTargetException" problems.. I spent 3 days to solve this --nothing! (even when I circumvent the problem - the code didn't work --check the readers errors at the bottom of the tutorial)
Another alternative, I tried this which resulted in different class generation (the author was using "convertersoap11port_http" while the eclipse version that I'm using (ganymede) doesn't have this option (I used the endPoint but it didn't generate the requested files)....
OK...now, I'm writing here asking if anyone knows a good (working) tutorial to use web-services.
If netbeans is your recommendation - I'll go for i (though I never tried it before but heard it's good for web-services)!
For Invocation targertexception this is what you may have to do.
1. Copy 2 files: "backport-util-concurrent-3.1.jar" and "geronimo-stax-api_1.0_spec-1.0.1.jar" from <Axis2Home_Location>/lib folder to the <Eclipse_Location>\plugins\Axis2_Codegen_Wizard_1.3.0\lib folder.
2. Edit the plugins.xml file in the <Eclipse_Location>\plugins\Axis2_Codegen_Wizard_1.3.0 folder as follows:
