JAX-WS with weblogic and eclipse

I was trying to create a JAX-WS web service , with Weblogic Server as the Application Server and eclipse as the IDE .

I used WSDL first approach .

Below are the summary of the steps I used :

1 : created a sample.xsd file to create a sample schema for the data types to be used in the WSDL .

2 : created a WSDL file with some operations .

3: created the web service using the eclipse tool, generate Web Service from FROM WSDL .

4: Implemented the business logic into the generated class .

5: Tried to deploy the web service on the Weblogic Server using eclipse ( Run As Application Server ) .

Received below Error :

javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException : java.lang.NullPointerException at weblogic.wsee.jaxws.WLSInstanceResolver.getSingleton(WLSInstanceResolver.java:36)


Complete stack trace is as below :

I tried below steps to resolve the issue :

1 : Checked the java build path of the eclipse , to make sure that there is no weblogic.jar and wsseclient.jar in the classpath .

It was present, I removed it and tried it again, received the same exception.


2: Exported the project as the war file from eclipse and deployed manually on the Weblogic Server , still received the same exception.

Then, after some troubleshooting, I found the below solution :

1 : looked into the generated Web Service Class file from eclipse , and found that the wsdlLocation was having a warning message : wsdl location not found . 

value of the above parameter was : wsdlLocation=”.wsdls/myservice.wsdl”

Then I changed the value to below :

wsdlLocation = “WEB-INF/wsdls/myservice.wsdl”

recompiled and deployed the application and the deployment was successful .
