Re: [wtp-dev] Cannot complete tutorials for web services.

I don't doubt the docs in are wanting. We're in the process of updating and committing up-to-date Web service plugins into CVS. Once done, we'll be moving onto a number of initiatives including beefed up documentation.

Further to Jeffrey's questions, it would help to know where the docs first let you down. Sections 3.2.3 and 3.2.4 in WebServicesToolsEval.html from detail how to deploy the "Converter" Web service, but there could be some nuances that need further explaining. The "no methods" error could be a result of the Java source file not being in quite the right package, so you might double-check that it is alive and well in the Web project's JavaSource/wtp folder.

Cheers - CB.

Re: [wtp-dev] Cannot complete tutorials for web services.


Thanks for the feedback. It would help if you can elaborate a little on
what you feel is incomplete, so that we can improve the docs and examples
in the future. The initial Web service contribution allows you to start
with Java classes or WSDL files, and turn them into Web services. In the
future, anyone can dive into the Web service code and extend the support
for whatever artifacts they want.

As for the "no methods error" that you ran into, would it be possible for
you to provide some screen shots or the error code that shows up? That
would help us debug what the problem is. Btw, would you by any chance have
overlaid both and on top of the same Eclipse base? If
so, there's a known problem where the axis version contributed by does not match the axis version contributed by As a
result, the wrong axis version is being picked up by the Web service code
and things just fall apart. Hope this helps.

Yes, the We Services tools are being refreshed and will appear in the
builds soon. Chris or Jeffrey should be able to give you more information.

I have not no end of  problems trying to evaluate wtp web services. The
documentation seems to be incomplete. eg. when creating a webservice /
client you must select a java object. The docs does not cover this. So I
select the Convert java class from the previous step. Clicking next
gives a error no method could be found. I am using all the downloads
from the links. I also get errors stating unable to copy axis.jar over
and over again. Are there any patches or update code since these
versions seem to be full of bugs with incomplete documentation.
