This is the warning I am getting when I try to use this WPS service from QGIS, and the processing time is taking too long, but doesn't terminate.

What might be the problem?

17 Oct 12:33:25 INFO [geoserver.wps] -
Request: getCapabilities   
    service = WPS   
    baseUrl = http:// localhost:8080/geoserver/   
17 Oct 12:33:31 WARN [geoserver.ows] - Could not get a ServiceInfo for service wps
                                       thus could not check if the service is enabled

what happens when you make a getcapabilities request from a browser? – iant Oct 17 '12 at 8:20
I get the XML description when i request getcapabilities from browser. http:// localhost:8080/geoserver/ows? service=WPS& version=1.0.0& request=GetCapabilities – Nikhil Oct 18 '12 at 4:52
I have the same problem, these lines appear in the GeoServer logs, the WARN message also happens when making request from browser, or any WPS client. I suspect a conf file somewhere causing some trouble because it lacks the info it should possess, but I am not sure at all. – Saryk Oct 8 '13 at 15:13
