Apache Axis2 ${project.version} build (${buildTimestamp})
We use Maven 2 ( to build, and you'll find a
pom.xml in each module, as well as at the top level. Use "mvn install"
(or "mvn clean install" to clean up first) to build.
IMPORTANT: the *first* time you build a given version of Axis2, you will not
be able to do a regular "mvn install" from the top level - this is because
we have a couple of custom Maven plugins that (due to some dependency-
resolution issues in Maven) must be built and installed in your local
repository before a build will succeed. This means you need to do one
of the following:
1) Use ant ( to build the first time. There is
a build.xml at the top level which automatically builds the plugins
first and then runs a regular "mvn install".
2) Manually "mvn install" both of the plugins in the following places:
Documentation can be found in the 'docs' distribution of this release
and in the main site.
To deploy a new Web service in Axis2 the following three steps must
be performed:
1) Create the Web service implementation class, supporting classes
and the services.xml file,
2) Archive the class files into a jar with the services.xml file in
the META-INF directory
3) Drop the jar file to the $AXIS2_HOME/WEB-INF/services directory
where $AXIS2_HOME represents the install directory of your Axis2
runtime. (In the case of a servelet container this would be the
"axis2" directory inside "webapps".)
To verify the deployment please go to http://<yourip>:<port>/axis2/ and
follow the "Services" Link.
