The answer to this question might be as simple as a no, but I wanted to make sure. With apache access is there a way to deploy a web service with just the WSDL. I did the WSDL2Java, but I need to set up a test server @localhost. The java files that came back where quite extensive and I don't really want to pour through all the code.

Any help is appreciated.

You will first need to deploy Axis to Tomcat and get it running properly. Easier than it sounds there. After that there is an ant task that can be run to generate the deployment file. There is then an axis admin servlet that is called. You do not need to go through all the java code. There should be an xxxxximpl.java file that is the only thing you should have to modify.

The WSDL describes only the interface to a service - it does not specify how it accomplishes what it does. So, as Jeremy pointed out, you still have to provide the service implementation.

Thanks for the responses. I have "axis" (don't know why I put access) setup. I have my own web services running. The vendor I'm working with is going to setup a test site for me to use with a new wsdl. So i don't have to deploy it locally. I guess what I was trying to do was get a web service from modifying the WSDL to run locally from axis. The WSDL2Java made me think I might be able to do. I didn't see an xxxximpl.java, but I also didn't install the admin part.

Thanks again,

Joe
