Date: Fri, 30 Mar 2007 14:43:36 -0700 (PDT)


I have deployed .war file on Tomcat server but when i am firing URL
on my browser then the browser giving me

HTTP Status 404 error

i have checked the content of .war file by extracting it and all the
required artifacts are properly created.

so if anyone has some idea that why i am not be able to access WSDL file.

I am using JWSDP 2.0 and i am developing a sample of jaxrpc
To make it very clear i am listing the commands that i have fired.

1) ant portable-web-package

2) wsdeploy -o Books.war Books-portable.war

after that i have copied the Books.war file into webapps folder of TOMCAT
server and after restarting the server i have fired the following URL in
mozila browser


the error is HTTP 404 not found...

I have visited several posts but some of them are suggesting to place the
wsdl file in a '/' directory ... i even tried that but still i am not be
able access wsdl file ...

listing of web.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application
2.3//EN" "">
