MyEclipse: Jax-RPC works, trouble with JAX-WS in MEBlue WebSphere 6.1

Post subject: Jax-RPC works, trouble with JAX-WS in MEBlue WebSphere 6.1
Following the tutorial for My Eclipse Blue Web Services I have no problem getting a new service up and running in JAX-RPC. When I tried the JAX-WS tutorial every test fails. We are using WebSphere 6.1 up to level 29 I believe. The JAX-WS service seems to be created - all artifacts produced. I launch the SOAP web Service Explorer and run tests that were OK with JAX-RPC. I generally get lately:
IIWAB0135E An unexpected error has occurred.
Not Found
I am trying to connect without SSL to start. Please offer any tips or ideas on this - it is very appreciated.

Sorry that you are seeing this issue with MyEclipse.

Can you answer some more questions for me to understand the issue better ?

1) Which version of MyEclipseBlue are you working with ? Paste the Build Id from Help > About MyEclipse Blue Edition > Build Id.

2) Are you creating a new JAX-WS Webservice project or working with an existing one ?

3) If you are using WAS 6.1 as the target server for JAX-WS then you will need to install the WAS 6.1 WS feature pack to be able to work with JAX-WS webservices.Take a look at this link for the same :

4) Once you have installed the feature pack successfully then give the tutorial here a try :

Let me know how this works for you.

We are using My Eclipse Blue 9.1 - the latest
I have tried building a new WS project AND i also have tried creating it within our existing enterprise Web Application. This wen application already has 2 JAX-RPC web services. Either way the results end up the same. If I create anything for RPC - it works, anything with WS - file not found (and no indication of what that is thought the logs referenced I file I could not find on the internet!

I have installed 6.1 WS feature PAK I believe. In fact we have the server up through fix pak 29 ( We want to use this as our development tool at ALSTOM. Part of our decision will hinge on how quick we can resolve issues that crop up. I will try the install again anyway and report back. If you can escalate a ticket or give us some one on one if I remain stuck, that would be greatly appreciated.

Post subject: No Progress
I attempted to install the fix pack for web services WebSphere 6.1 but all modules were reported as installed. Moving on I put fix pack 39 on our WebSphere 6.1. I still go to run the JAX-WS web service and the status is an unexpected error 404 Not Found. Meanwhile the server upgrade seemed to loose the deployment of our regular project and is not allowing it to be re-deployed. But lets stick to JAX-WS. I get the project back. Do you need to see any logs??

I did work on the tutorial for JAX-WS after installing the feature pack for Web Services on WAS 6.1 and I am unable to replicate the problem.

1) Did you follow the tutorial exactly ?

2) At which step are you seeing the issue? Is it during the Deploy and Test Webservice or when trying to load the WSDL ?

3) Clear the contents of the .log file which is located at <workspace dir>/.metadata/.log. Replicate the issue and paste the contents of the .log file which is located at <workspace dir>/.metadata/.log here for me to investigate further.

4) Can you also attach a screenshot of the issue ?

Post subject: Screen prints and some logs
I redid the tutorial and have enclosed screen prints. The log you requested stayed empty after I cleared it. I have included zipped logs from the appServer profile.
I tried the tutorial many ways - as written, adding to my existing project - all with same results. If I do the Tutorial for JAX-RPC - it works fine.

Thank you for the details.I could replicate the issue at my end. I have raised a PR for the dev team to look into it. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Thanks for looking into this. Since your replicated it, I will wait for further news from you. Meanwhile I'll be plugging away.

Post subject: Console Log when starting webservice test
I tried to install the Feature Pack for Web Services again. I don't know if this was a newer version as it referenced fixes. is the current level of my server although I thought I pout 39 on later. It was partially successful and then found a FIle.List in a repository and quit at that point. Anyway, I did console activity when first attempting to run the JAX-WS service for the CalculatorService. I did remove one of the double slashes mentioned in the previous material I sent. I felt the console might be giving some good clues as I had not got that out put before. I have attached it for you. Thanks.

I could run the example without issues when I replace the localhost in the URL with my system name. Ex : http://localhost:9081/WebServiceProject/ to

Recheck the URL from the Websphere's admin console. Login to the admin console, Go to Application > Enterprise Applications > ProjectName > Provide HTTP endpoint URL information > HTTP URL Prefix.

Also make sure your application status is running/started in the admin console.

Post subject: Bad to worse
I had tried this earlier with no success. I am now getting server startup errors I was not getting. It may be my attempt to re-install the Feature Pack for Web Services again. Now my server starts with lots of errors. It was clean before. Can you take a look at this console log? Errors start with looking for wscoor.xsd. Should I uninstall websphere and start all over? That's what I am about to do.

Sorry that you are seeing this issue.

1) The error reported in the console is a WAS issue which is already reported.Take a look at this thread. It might also be due to improper installation of Websphere:

2)Make sure your websphere is installed properly along with the webservice feature pack. I recommend a reinstall of the Websphere. This should fix the issue.
I have filed a PR with the dev team to investigate it further.

Let me know how this works for you.

Post subject: Install WebSphere 6.1, JAX-WS Tutorial
I am following your advice and am re-installing WebSphere. I am using the Tutorial above. Everything has gone fine. However at the point where it says 8.Applying Updates PK 53804 it lists IFPK53084.pak which I have. It also mentions 6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak which I cannot locate on the IBM site or anywhere else so far. I NEED to get this server up to eventually. Can I substitute another file for the one I cannot locate?
Thanks again. J. Thomas

1) Whats your OS and version ?

2) Unzip the downloaded Feature Pack for Webservices zip file and you should find the .pak file under 6.1.0-WS-WAS-WSFEP-WinX32 directory.

3) Did you download the Feature Pack from this url : ? If no then share the url from where you have downloaded.

3) Can you list the contents of the folder 6.1.0-WS-WAS-WSFEP-WinX32?

4) Click on install.exe under D:\download.1.0-WS-WAS-WSFEP-WinX32\WEBSV folder and follow the wizard to install the feature pack. Take a look at Chapter 6 : Installation , section : 6.3 : Windows Installation and Configuration for screenshots on how to install the feature pack :

Let me know how this works for you.

Post subject: 6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak
I think I was not clear. I have already gotten through to step 8. and have successfully installed the Web Service feature Pack. The files in step 8 are which I have, and then 6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak which I am having trouble locating. The instructions from the tutorial

8. Applying Updates PK53084 Interim Fix and Web Service Feature Pack

Now that we have updated WebSphere and added the Web Service Feature Pack, we need to apply two updates for the Web Service Feature Pack that are available:
6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak <- I can't find this

Attached is the web services feature pack directory to show you I had installed the correct pak.

Post subject: Tutorial Update - Need Advice
My issue has become a problem for us. It would seem the tutorial for Installing WebSphere 6.1, Jax-WS, EJB 3.0 and updates was good when it came out. WebSphere 6.1 is now up to fix pak 37 I believe. As I said, we use Oracle 11g and must have in order to run with that version of Oracle. The tutorial is referencing no update after 13. The file referenced as 6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak is not available and yet it is required in the tutorial. Our company has purchased 6 licenses with the possibility of more but I need to get this to create and run JAX-WS web services using WebSphere 6.1. We are updating WebSphere next year but we have to run until then. I think it is a serious problem to reference older fix paks, some of which may not be available. Please either tell me where to find 6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak or tell me if I can use a newer version of that file. Very much in anticipation here. James Thomas

Post subject: I have found the file - thanks to Twitter
I have found the files. 6.1.0-WS-WASWebSvc-WinX32-FP0000013.pak is very hard to find. The page led to all fixes. A search on the file name in IBM or online does not come up with much. I am going to redo using 13 and if that works, redo using fix pack 29. I will let you know how this goes. Your tutorial should be more explicit in how to get these files.
