SOAP Axis Receiver adapter - adapter is null exception

Hi All

We are using SOAP (Axis) Receiver adapter to connect to a MS webservice. Below is the configuration of the adapter.

Adapter Type: SOAP

Transport Protocol: HTTP (Axis)

Message Protocol: Axis

Adapter Engine: Integration Server

SOAP Version: 1.1

Ecapsulaqtion Format: MIME

Version Apache Axis version: 1.4

I deployed the file aii_af_axisprovider.sda and the http://host:port/XIAxisAdapter/MessageServlet status is OK.

Processing Sequence: [Did not make chagnes to Standard processing sequence]

AF_Adapters/axis/AFAdapterBean Local Enterprise Bean afreq

AF_Adapters/axis/HandlerBean Local Enterprise Bean xireq

AF_Adapters/axis/HandlerBean Local Enterprise Bean trp

AF_Adapters/axis/HandlerBean Local Enterprise Bean xires

AF_Adapters/axis/AFAdapterBean Local Enterprise Bean afres

Module Configuration

trp handler.type

trp module.pivot true

xireq handler.type

xires handler.type

This configuration was working for a long time and suddenly it stopped working. We are getting the below error.

We did not make any chagnes to the Server or the Communicaiton channels in the mean time. It just Stopped working...

Delivering the message to the application using connection SOAP_ failed, due to: org.apache.axis.ConfigurationException: adapter is null org.apache.axis.ConfigurationException: adapter is null at

at at sun.reflect.GeneratedMethodAccessor314.invoke

We cannot use HTTP REceiver adapter instead of SOAP Axis adapter as suggested int eh below thread b'cos the target webservice needs NTLM authentication which is supported only by SOAP-Axis Adapter.
