SOAP Monitor Installation

(also see: http://www.sosnoski.com/presents/java-xml/axis/axis-monitor.html)

1) compile SOAPMonitorApplet.java

  # cd $TOMCAT/webapps/axis  
  # javac -classpath WEB-INF/lib/axis.jar SOAPMonitorApplet.java

2) Various  SOAPMonitorApplet*.class  files should now be in the axis webapp root (e.g. tomcat4/webapps/axis).

3) add soapmonitor handlers to the request and response handler chains in the axis server-config.wsdd (e.g. tomcat4/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/server-config.wsdd)

<globalConfiguration>
 <requestFlow> 
    <handler name="soapmonitor" type="java:org.apache.axis.handlers.SOAPMonitorHandler"/> 
    ... any existing configuration ... 
  </requestFlow> 
  <responseFlow> 
    <handler name="soapmonitor" type="java:org.apache.axis.handlers.SOAPMonitorHandler"/> 
    ... any existing configuration ... 
  </responseFlow> 
</globalConfiguration> 

This will monitor all SOAP messages; add the requestFlow and responseFlow elements to individual services to target monitoring.

4) Deploy the  SOAPMonitorService  using the following deployment descriptor:

<deployment xmlns="http://xml.apache.org/axis/wsdd/"
   xmlns:java="http://xml.apache.org/axis/wsdd/providers/java"> 
  <service name="SOAPMonitorService" provider="java:RPC"> 
    <parameter name="allowedMethods" value="publishMessage"/> 
    <parameter name="className" 
      value="org.apache.axis.monitor.SOAPMonitorService"/> 
    <parameter name="scope" value="Application"/> 
  </service> 
</deployment> 

5) make sure  SOAPMonitorService  servlet is mapped in webapp config file (e.g. tomcat4/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/web.xml)

6) restart application server (tomcat)

Now the SOAPMonitor applet should be available at http://127.0.0.1:8080/axis/SOAPMonitor
