So I've continued moving my web services over from wsimport
way of building them to JWSC
and in my quest I keep hitting issues to do with JWSC
compilation. This latest problem came in the form of 'Wrong number of class files' error message. This stumbled me for a while, it was an hour before my vacation was about to start, I just wanted to throw the laptop off the balcony at this point, but I managed to find a fix for this error.
The problem as it turned out was to do with classes generated by wsimport
. My bad, I should have paid more attention. Lets see the error message first though.
This is a part of the JWSC output, but it shows the error.
Update: The original fix suggested to delete all of the package-info.java files. Instead, I started excluding them in my build system, I think this is a cleaner approach. So my jwsfileset looks like this now...
Below is the original approach I used.
So the fix is to find and delete all of the package-info.java
files in your source directory. JWSC seems to expect these, but they don't get processed somehow. No issue, there is nothing useful in these files so they are quite safe to delete.
After I deleted all of these in my project, the issue went away.
