Java : Tomcat / Eclipse and Axis2

I needed to develop a Java web service that ran inside Tomcat and used Axis2 as the web server component.

I use Eclipse as my Java IDE and was looking around for plug-ins that would automate and simplify the whole process.

Came across this excellent tutorial - Developing Web Services Using Apache Axis2 Eclipse Plugins - Part 1

This uses two Eclipse plug-ins:

Apache Axis2 Service Archive Generator Wizard and
Apache Axis2 Code Generator Wizard

which generate the proxies and then wrap everything up for deployment to Tomcat.

I highly recommend working through the tutorial and then using that knowledge to develop and deploy your own.
