      Description

      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
      <dependency>
      <groupId>javax.activation</groupId>
      <artifactId>activation</artifactId>
      <version>1.1</version>
      </dependency>

      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!!

        1. I've fixed the </dependencies> tag, thanks for spotting this!

        2. That dependency should be automatically resolved via maven. The dep graph is saaj-api->saaj-impl->activation.See http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/javax/xml/soap/saaj-api/1.3/saaj-api-1.3.pom

        3. I am open for suggestions here.

        Hi Arjen,

        I do not believe anything should be left to "automatic". Maven can be another new tool for the developer and hence nothing should be assumed. I am working on a simpler tutorial. If and when I have it working I will let you know

        Thanks,
        Vs
