I am using STS 2.8.1. I have a web service done in C# for which I am attempting to create a web service client in STS. I have seen a number of references to the FileNotFoundException issue and I realize there is a bug. However, the work-around does not work. I have only a single xml.soap_1.2.0 plugin in my installation - there is no 1.3 so I assume i should not blow away the directory. I tried to manually add the saaj.jar to my web project before running the wizard but it gets removed when the wizard executes. Any suggestions or other work arounds? Thanks.
