 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
