Downloading and Installing Axis2/Java
This section provides a tutorial example on how to download and install Axis2/Java to a Windows systems that has JDK available.
Here is what I did to download and install Axis2/Java 1.7.8:
1. Go to http://ws.apache.org/axis2/ and click link in the left menu "Version 1.7.8". The Axis2/Java 1.7.8 Documentation Home page shows up.
2. Click the link "Download and Installation" in Apache Axis2 User's Guide section. The Apache Axis2 Installation Guide page shows up.
3. Click "Download" link next to "distribution packages of the Apache Axis2 1.7.8 version (latest)" in the Axis2 Distributions section. The Axis2 1.7.8 Release download page shows up.
4. Click "axis2-1.7.8-bin.zip" link at the end of the "Binary distribution" row. The browser download dialog box shows up.
5. Save the download file, axis2-1.7.8-bin.zip, to C:\local folder. The size of axis2-1.7.8-bin.zip should be 23,030,856 bytes.
6. Unzip axis2-1.7.8-bin.zip to C:\local folder. Axis2 is installed at C:\local\axis2-1.7.8. Rename C:\local\axis2-1.7.8 to C:\local\axis2 to simplify the path name.
Since I am only going to use Axis2 for client side program, I don't need to integrate Axis2 with Tomcat. So my installation is done.
Let's try the command line tool wsdl2java to verify the installation.

Cool. The installation seems to be ok after setting two environment variables: JAVA_HOME and AXIS2_HOME.
