java_webservices thread: Re: WSTK 3.0 and WSTK 2.4 for Pro. Java WebServices


Message #1 by faan_meiring@y... on Thu, 2 May 2002 09:42:52
Hello Fannie

WSTK 3.x uses AXIS as the underlying engine rather than Apache SOAP 2.2. 
The utilities that are provided with AXIS are different from those 
provided by Apache SOAP. In WSTK 3.x, the wsdlgen and proxygen tools have 
been deprecated.

I suggest you read these chapters but basically disregard all sample code. 
You should go to the last chapter (I think) that deals with AXIS for 
sample code. This chapter shows you how to use the java2wsdl tool in place 
of the wsdlgen tool. You may have some minor problems with the sample code 
in this chapter though....someone suggested that I download Axis Beta 
Release 2 and play with the sample code they provide for further 
understanding. I have yet to do so since I am also busy with my University 
exams. 

I hope this helps...
