4. Deploy a client application to access the Web service
After the IMS application is successfully deployed in the IMS SOAP Gateway, you need to test whether you can access the Web service from a client application, such as a Java or Microsoft .NET application. The IMS SOAP Gateway deployment utility can help you generate the Java proxy code that you can use in your Java application (Step E in the previous section: Generate the Java client code in the IMS SOAP Gateway deployment utility).
For this exercise, an existing Java application is provided.
- Copy the phonebook directory from C:\IMS PhoneBook.
- Paste the phonebook directory into the webapps file:
C:\Program Files\IBM\IMS SOAP Gateway V10.1\server\webapps
Now you should have a directory that looks like this:
C:\Program Files\IBM\IMS SOAP Gateway V10.1\server\webapps\phonebook
- Stop IMS SOAP Gateway. From the Windows Start menu, select Programs > IBM IMS SOAP Gateway V10.1 > Stop Server.
