I´m somewhat lost trying to get a first sample Web Service to work
with IDEA 5.0.2 and the webservices plugin 0.4 build 5.
I've installed Tomcat 5.5.15 with Axis. Tthe Axis happyness page shows
Axis is happy and the EchoHeaders.jws sample compiles and works fine.
So I created a new "Web Module" project in IDEA, leaving all to
default values, put a simple method in a class in a package in /src,
hit "Enable Web Service Support", built the Project, "Generate Wsdl
from Java Code", configured Run/Debug to use local Tomcat (default
Using a web browser to access http://localhost:8080/ (= deployment
root/app context/startup page) results in Tomcat showing error 404
(http://localhost:8080/axis and everything else is ok).
The "Run" dialog in IDEA shows the web module is deployed ok, but
trying to do Tools/"Deploy Java Class as Web Service" says:
"The web server is not running - launch the webservices web module in
local Tomcat run/debug session".
Any clues? Thanks!
