Re: Is Apache Axis required to deploy JAX-RPC application?.

Hello Bobby,

it worked! :-)

Just to mention, maybe it's of interest: I had to copy these .jar's (out
of Sun J2EE 1.4 RI) following the missing class exceptions from Tomcat
   jaxrpc-impl.jar, jaxrpc-api.jar
   jax-qname.jar (javax/xml/namespace/Qname)
   j2ee.jar (javax/xml/soap/SOAPException)

When I deploy my .war for example to WebSphere, I can take the RAW
version. WebSphere seems to evaluate the jaxrpc-ri.xml file itself and
does create all this tie stuff and all. So, I guess the current Tomcat
version is not "JAXRPC ready" per default. You have to assemble an
JAXRPC implementation specific .war (for example, with Sun J2EE's libs
and wsdeploy tool) and provide the implementation specific .jars to
Tomcat. At least, even with the JAXRPC jars in common/libs, when I copy
my raw .war to Tomcat webapps, nothing (besides from extracting the
.war) happens.

Bobby, thank you for the response!
