Installing Tomcat and Axis

  1. Download Tomcat at http://jakarta.apache.org, Select Binaries under the Downloads heading, and select the version you want to use.

  2. Set CATALINA_HOME to the Tomcat root directory where Tomcat was installed.

  3. Download Axis at http://ws.apache.org/axis/.

  4. Unzip the Axis and Copy the axis folder under 'Axis Root Folder\webapps\' directory to the Tomcat\webapps directory.

  5. Create the following Axis environment variables:

    set AXIS_HOME = Tomcat Root Directory\webapps\axis (or %CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\axis).
    set AXIS_LIB = Tomcat Root Directory\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\ (or %AXIS_HOME%\WEB-INF\lib\)

  6. Now follow the steps to add the AXISCLASSPATH which will be using correctly mapped AXIS_LIB environment variable, as Follows (But Please replace with corresponding <Version Numbers> for the JAR files while setting the Path)

    AXISCLASSPATH = %AXIS_LIB%axis.jar;%AXIS_LIB%axis-ant.jar;%AXIS_LIB%commons-discovery-<version>.jar;%AXIS_LIB%commons-logging-<version> .jar;%AXIS_LIB%jaxrpc.jar;%AXIS_LIB%log4j- <version> .jar;%AXIS_LIB%saaj.jar;%AXIS_LIB%wsdl4j-<version>.jar

  7. Set the AXISCLASSPATH in CLASSPATH environment variable along with current Folder.

    set CLASSPATH=.;%AXISCLASSPATH%

    Note; You should Set JAVA_HOME to jdk home directory and Add %JAVA_HOME%\bin to the PATH.
