problem creating helloWorld web service

Hello,

I've downloaded the JWS tutorial from the sun site (jwsdp-1_3-tutorial.zip).
I've unzipped it to a local directory.

I've installed Ant (v.1.5.4)

I've gone to the directory which contains the build.xml in the samples directory, and here's what I get:

---------------------------------------------
D:\download\j2ee\jwstutorial13\examples\jaxrpc\helloservice>ant build
Buildfile: build.xml

BUILD FAILED
file:D:/download/j2ee/jwstutorial13/examples/jaxrpc/common/targets.xml:30: taskdef class org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask cannot be found

Total time: 3 seconds

---------------------------------------------

I don't have Tomcat installed.  Do I need this, if so, can I just use the version that's bundled with JBoss v3.2.2?

Thanks for any help,
TimB

You need the catalina-ant jar file...

Not sure if it's in the JBoss bundle...

have a look... :-)

 It can't find the DeployTask class. I guess the ant.jar file is already in the classpath. Can you make sure that you do not have an older/newer version of the ant (just check if there are two or more ants installed). It is probably a classpath conflict.

Make sure Ant is in your classpath.

>>Do I need this

Can't give you an authorative answer on this, but i'd think almost certainly you do (or another server)

>>can I just use the version that's bundled with JBoss v3.2.2?

Possibly, although you'll have to be careful that the JBoss configuration has not, because of its interceptors, effectively hobbled its normal operation.

Sorry not to be more definite. I'm sure someone else will be able to be, although that should give you a start.
