I am trying to follow a tutorial about Web Services and WSDL, which starts with Part 1 at...


Unfortunately, this tutorial is 11 years old; but, it appears to be the best tutorial I can find. It seems to walk the user through the entire process of setting up Web Services and explaining how WSDL works. I haven't found anything comparable to this; so, I would like to be able to use it. It requires the installation of Geronimo and the deployment of Axis2 into it. But, of course, the directions apply to outdated versions.

I am running a CentOS 6 VM on VirtualBox with Geronimo 2.2.1 installed. I downloaded the WAR distribution of Axis2, axis2-1.7.6-war.zip, and copied the axis2.war file into the deploy directory under Geronimo. Upon starting Geronimo, I get several errors, starting with...

2017-11-14 14:54:44,074 ERROR [DirectoryMonitor] Unable to scan file /opt/geronimo2.2.1.bk0/deploy/axis2.war during initialization

I found an article that said it isn't necessary to deploy the axis2.war file and that it is only necessary to modify the config.xml file, removing the condition attribute from the axis2-deployer and the cxf-deployer module entries and replacing them with the following, which I did.

<module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/axis2-deployer/2.2.1/car"/>

<module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/cxf-deployer/2.2.1/car" load="false"/>

I started Geronimo again and, in a browser, went to localhost:8080/axis2/axis2-web/index.jsp, whcih came up just fine. But, if I click on "Services" or "Administration", on the server console, I get two errors as follows.

2017-11-14 15:02:06,521 ERROR [[/axis2]] StandardWrapper.Throwable
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/io/FileUtils

2017-11-14 15:02:06,522 ERROR [[AxisAdminServlet]] Allocate exception for servlet AxisAdminServlet
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/io/FileUtils

If anyone can guide me through to what I need to do to get this working, it will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Mike,
sorry to say that this is a forum for httpd apache (written in C). We have no experience with Geronimo
