Hi user '6bf38c5b-5aea-4186-9e77-bf1326cfd283',
Are you trying to deploy the actual AutoVue Web Services, or are you trying to deploy the AutoVue "JVue" or "VueBean" object within a Web Service? If it's the former, note that AutoVue Web Services doesn't offer a service for viewing files, it only offers:
- Text extraction
- Metadata extraction
- Xrefs list
- Part tree list
- Layers list
If however you're trying to deploy a JVue-based or VueBean-based application, and running into the particular error ("javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException: Unable to create JAXBContext") it sounds like a more generic build/deployment error (not an AutoVue-specific issue). In that case I'd suggest to reach out through the Glassfish forums as the issue has likely already been discussed/resolved through those forums.
Thank you so much for the reply. I will re-post this on the GlassFish Thread.

You know, I don't know. My only goal is to take this DGN file and turn it into something I can view in Silverlight.
The current path, I think, is:
IIS => Grab the DGN. Pass the DGN to Glassfish\AutoVue bean, I think that passes it on to the jVue Server. Which passes back a PNG.
All I want is an image of the dgn. I suspect "I'm doing it wrong".
As I've been handed a couple of directories:
C:\oracle\AutoVueWS\autovue_webservices <= this contains the WAR file I've been trying to install on glassfish
from which I run "C:\Program Files\jVue\bin\jvueserver.bat"
This, of course, is working on my development machine. But I am unable to duplicate on a test Virtual Machine.
Can I just talk to the jVueServer directly? Is there a simpler approach given the tools they have?
Hi again '6bf38c5b-5aea-4186-9e77-bf1326cfd283',
If all you need AutoVue for is converting from an input format (such as DGN) to an output format of PNG, then yes this is a use-case for AutoVue's Web Services API (specifically the 'convert' Web Service). In that case you should proceed with the question to the GlassFish forums so they can help resolve the deployment issue.
However, depending on how you've got your Silverlight solution implemented, it might be even more efficient/seamless to avoid the conversion process altogether, and simply embed the AutoVue applet within your solution's interface. In that case, users would view their files (in DGN or whatever format) directly within the AutoVue applet, and you could customize the applet UI as needed (in terms of menus/toolbars/etc). If that's of interest to you, check out the AutoVue API Guide at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37436_01/otn/pdf/E37455_01.pdf
And to answer your last question - No, there's no way to talk directly to the AutoVue server. The AutoVue API as well as the AutoVue Web Services API are both client-side APIs.
