 Description  « Hide

Reproducible operational steps:
asadmin.bat deploy axws-w2j-02-web.war

Detailed description of the issue:
When a war file is deployed by asadmin deploy command, it provided a misleading error message.
asadmin.bat deploy C:\Projects\TRAC\4851\jaxws-w2j-02-web.war
remote failure: Error occurred during deployment: Exception while preparing the
app : Service AddNumbersService seems to be a JAXRPC based web service but without the mandatory WSDL and Mapping file. Deployment cannot proceed. Please see server.log for more details.
Command deploy failed.

In fact, the war file contains valid WSDL and Mapping file although there exist other bugs in the war file.

The testing was under GlassFish v4 trunk (built from (revision 57288))

The error message is from webservices code, assign to webservices team for evaluation.

Assign to webservice team for evaluation as the error message is from the webservices code (when I previously reassigned it I forgot to change the assigned engineer and only changed category).

I see - Lukasi - is this WS issue?

yep, this is ours. The real cause is buried in the server side log:

SEVERE: Unable to load impl class fromwsdl.server.AddNumbersImpl
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: fromwsdl.server.AddNumbersImpl
	at org.glassfish.webservices.WsUtil.isJAXWSbasedService(
	at org.glassfish.webservices.WebServicesDeployer.prepare(

this error should be made critical and sent back to the user instead of allowing further processing. In this sense it is duplicate of GLASSFISH-19366.

The difference between these two issues is the real cause:
*this issue - servlet-class links to non-existing class
*GLASSFISH-19366 - servlet-class element is missing
