Error while deploying Axis2 web service on Tomcat

Hi,
I have a Axis2 web service developed on Eclipse. Deploying and access to Tomcat test server within Eclipse work fine. My test program is able to access the service via the generated stub.
I am using Tomcat 5.5.26 and Axis2-1.4 and eclipse "Europa" release.
The trouble is, when I generate a .aar file and attempt to deploy it on Tomcat external to Eclipse, the attached error occurs when Tomcat reads and attempts to deploy it.
I have been looking at suggestions on the web and just FYI, one approach I tried and worked just half is that remove the <messageReceivers> tags and just retain the <messageReceiver element in the services.xml file. This appears to work just halfway in the sense that Tomcat deploys it and everything looks good from the Axis2's Happy page and I access the WSDL from the
URL and such. What fails is my test program when it tries to instantiate the stub to access the service (error message is attached after the dotted line delimiter). This means that any client program attempting to access the web service would fail. And while building the .aar file, I am including the WSDL and the already generated services.xml files.

Any suggestions?
Regards
Suresh

Hopefully this helps, but double check the JARs/Libraries added to your project to ensure that they have been placed in the Tomcat startup classpath.  They are probably referenced in Eclipse, but not copied automatically in the .AAR.

This particular class is not found in the class path please make sure it in the project

or aar.

hi mwvisa1,
I am not including the jar files in the aar file.

Siva Prasanna KumarPrincipal Solutions ArchitectCommented:
does this message reciever class contain reference any class which is not contained in the aar file?

"A ClassNotFoundException error occurred in loading the message receiver"

check that its unable to resolve some imports I feel, first make sure the service is up and running and then we can see how do deal with the client.you can use eclipse WTP web service explorer as client for simple testing.

The problem was two fold.The first part as that I needed to add some jar files. Secondly, when I was creating the aar file using the Archiver Wizard, I was setting the path to the class file from WebContent onwards in order to include the web.xml file. After I changed the path to load the class files from the classes folder level in the web-inf folder, the error was resolved.

Thanks very much.
