WSDL generation problems during deployment

When deploying JAX-WS Web Services without associated WSDL, the application server will automatically generate the WSDL for the service. With Axis2 as the JAX-WS provider, the application server uses Sun's wsgen tool to generate the WSDL. Sometimes wsgen can fail to generate the WSDL (for example, because of invalid annotations). In most of such cases, the output of the wsgen tool will be logged to the geronimo.log file. However, in some cases the output might not get logged and it might be necessary to enable extra logging to see the full output of the wsgen tool. To enable full logging of the wsgen tool add the following line to server-log4j.properties file:

The output of wsgen will appear in the geronimo.log file.
