To manually deploy a Web service on an Axis server
  1. Copy the generated WSDD file to a location on the target server described above.

  2. Copy the following JAR files to a location on the target server described above:


  3. Re-start Apache Tomcat.

  4. Run the Axis AdminClient tool to process the WSDD that was generated with the task_name.jar file.

    The Axis AdminClient tool is provided by Apache Axis to deploy Web services. To run the tool you must have a JAXP-1.1 compliant XML parser such as Xerces or crimson in the class path. Xerces.jar can be copied from the following directory:


  5. Run the Axis AdminClient tool:
    java -classpath "C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12\webapps\axis\
    Continued lineWEB-INF\lib\axis.jar; C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\jaxrpc.jar; C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\saaj.jar; C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\
    Continued linecommons-logging.jar; C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\
    Continued linecommons-discovery.jar; C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\wsdl4j.jar; C:\xerces-1.4.4\xerces.jar" org.apache.axis.client.
