[jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - First webservice

I'm trying to create a webservice. I followed the tutorials at http://www.javabeat.net/articles/40-creating-webservice-using-jboss-and-eclipse-europa-1.html.

The server would not run the war file created by following these steps. I've debugged all day but could not find the reason for it. What I figured out was that the WSDL file was not created. Strangely, the index.html, a static web page I've created for test would not run either.

In the book "JBoss in Action", chapter 9 I read that wsprovide is the program used to generate wsdls and it could be used manually. I attempted to do so and I think I figured out where it all fails. The message I got in Dos prompt is: 
Error: Could not generate. (use --show-traces to see full traces)

  |         at org.jboss.wsf.spi.tools.cmd.WSProvide.main(WSProvide.java:76)

The java code I'm trying to generate wsdl for is:

  | import javax.jws.WebService;
  | import javax.jws.WebMethod;
  | @WebService
  | public class Greeting
  | {
  |    @WebMethod
  |    public String greetClient(String userName)
  |    {
  |       return "Greeting " + userName + "! Have a nice day...";
  |    }
  | }

I'm certain that there is an error, not perhaps in the code it self but maybe with my configuration of eclipse (or is it JBoss)? 

Would be grateful for any help!
