  2. I used JDK6.

  3. I used Ant 1.6.5.

  4. Unzip (say C:\apache\apache-cxf-2.0.5-incubator\ )
    Set all the Windows environment variables as described in:C:\apache\apache-cxf-2.0.5-incubator\samples\README

  5. Create a new directory called endorsed like:

    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_05\jre\lib\endorsed

  6. Follow the jdk6 special instruction ( (If using a Java 6 kit, you may need to copy the jaxb*.jar, saaj*.jar, jaxws*.jar jars from the C:\apache\apache-cxf-2.0.5-incubator\lib dir to your newly created C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_05\jre\lib\endorsed directory)

  7. Open a new cmd window and cd to:
    C:\apache\apache-cxf-2.0.5-incubator\samples\java_first_pojoand issue

    “ant server”

    Open another new cmd window and cd to:
    C:\apache\apache-cxf-2.0.5-incubator\samples\java_first_pojoand issue

    “ant client”

    The client window should now display a greeting message.
