What I've tried:

installed sun-jdk, set environment variables in etc/environment like so:

CATALINA_HOME="/usr/share/tomcat6"
CATALINA_BASE="/var/lib/tomcat6"
CATALINA_OPTS="-server -Xms384M -Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=256M"
JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.26"
AXIS_HOME="/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/axis"
AXIS_LIB="/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/lib"
AXISCLASSPATH="/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/lib"

I'm sure its something silly but for the life of me I cannot find a solution.  Am I the only one trying to use Axis on TKL Tomcat?
 

Thanks!

Am I completely missing something here?  why is this so difficult.

java -version was still returning free-jdk even though JAVA_HOME was set to sun java.  I have had problems with this in the past under ubuntu so I completely removed freejdk.  only sun-java left.

there is a lot of confliting info on etc/environment but using the quotes like above and no export commands is the only way that the variables echo correctly so I think that is correct.

/usr/share/tomcat6/bin/catalina.sh contains code that overrides user classpath variables when it executes.  according to docs, all classpath references should be put setenv.sh

I created setenv.sh and in it have the recommended classpath from apache:

set AXISCLASSPATH=$AXIS_LIB/axis.jar:$AXIS_LIB/commons-discovery.jar:
  $AXIS_LIB/commons-logging.jar:$AXIS_LIB/jaxrpc.jar:$AXIS_LIB/saaj.jar:
  $AXIS_LIB/log4j-1.2.8.jar:$AXIS_LIB/xml-apis.jar:$AXIS_LIB/xercesImpl.jar

echos fine, but still no happyaxis
