The tutorial http://static.springframework.org/spring-ws/site/reference/html/tutorial.html is a total show-stopper for the new users. There are many mistakes some of which are listed below:-
1. The example of POM has wrong end tag for </dependencies>
2. activation.jar is needed for the tutorial to work. Hence the following code should be added to pom.xml
3. The tutorial should be perfect and simple. We should try to make it simpler with minimal features and calculations. I still feel we should put more effort in this.
PS: I have never got the tutorial to work!!
