  1. In a terminal window, go to tut-install/examples/jaxws/helloservice/.

  2. Make sure the Enterprise Server is started.

  3. Run ant deploy.

You can view the WSDL file of the deployed service by requesting the URL http://localhost:8080/helloservice/hello?WSDL in a web browser. Now you are ready to create a client that accesses this service.
