Installing JAF 1.0.2
This section describes a tutorial on how to install JAF (JavaBeans Activation Framework) 1.0.2 on a Windows system.
JAF stands for JavaBeans Activation Framework. Here is the official description of JAF 1.0.2:
With the JavaBeans Activation Framework standard extension, developers who use Java technology can take advantage of standard services to determine the type of an arbitrary piece of data, encapsulate access to it, discover the operations available on it, and to instantiate the appropriate bean to perform said operation(s). For example, if a browser obtained a JPEG image, this framework would enable the browser to identify that stream of data as an JPEG image, and from that type, the browser could locate and instantiate an object that could manipulate, or view that image.
I need to install JAF 1.0.2 to complete my Axis installation. Here is what I did:
1. Go to http://java.sun.com/products/javabeans/glasgow/jaf.html.
2. Follow the instructions to download jaf-1_0_2-upd2.zip.
3. Unzip jaf-1_0_2-upd2.zip.
4. Copy .\jaf-1.0.2\activation.jar to \axis\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib
5. Re-start Tomcat, and go to http://localhost:8080/axis/happyaxis.jsp again. You should get no more error. All needed components are found:
... Needed Components Found SAAJ API ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\saaj.jar Found JAX-RPC API ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\jaxrpc.jar Found Apache-Axis ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\axis.jar Found Jakarta-Commons Discovery ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF \lib\commons-discovery-0.2.jar Found Jakarta-Commons Logging ... \tomcat\bin \commons-logging-api.jar Found Log4j ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\log4j-1.2.8.jar Found IBM's WSDL4Java ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF \lib\wsdl4j-1.5.1.jar Found JAXP implementation ... an unknown location Found Activation API ... \tomcat\webapps\axis\WEB-INF \lib\activation.jar ...
I think my Axis installation is done now.
