I am new to web services and this is my first program... I am compiling java file which has import statement like: import org.apache.soap.util.xml.*; import org.apache.soap.*; import org.apache.soap.rpc.*; It says ----- package org.apache.soap.util.xml does not exist as one of errors.. I have a folder that I named soap myself and I have activation.jar,serces.jar,mail.jar,soap.jar in it. I added c:\soap in my classpath and this was supposed to be the quickstart way to try an example out... but it gives me compilation errors... what should I do ?
