Generate Apache Axis Web Services

Note To use Apache Axis Web services, you must generate them with the Keep Generated Source check box selected. Find this check box under Web Services Compilation Directory on the Compiling page of the Options dialog box, which is available from the Tools menu in Task Builder.

When you generate Web services for Apache Axis, a bean is generated, which is essentially identical to a service bean, but includes a Web Service Deployment Descriptor (WSDD) for deployment to the Apache Axis server. A WSDD is an XML document for configuring Apache Axis Web services.

To generate Apache Axis Web services
  1. Confirm that Tomcat is running on the default port, 8080.

  2. In Task Builder, from the Tools menu, select Options, and then from the Generating page, select Apache Axis, and click Properties.

  3. Verify that in Task Builder your Java compilation environment has been set. You must specify the location of your Sun Java 2 SDK (JDK) and Apache ANT build tool. These options are set on the Compiling page under the Tools menu, Options.
