Subject Fw: Axis c++ 1.5 release plan (draft 2)
Date Wed, 19 Jan 2005 12:10:08 GMT

The C support consists of....
1) The dynamic client API including generating headers from the C++ headers
2) The generated stubs including changes to wsdl2ws
3) Tests
4) Samples
5) Documentation
6) C services
7) C handlers

I am not able to complete this in 1.5. Currently the C headers are all
generated from the C++ headers during the ant build. This ensures that the
C API is always kept in step with the C++ API. I definitely expect to get
simple client applications working (such as Calculator) using generated
stubs. I will not be able implement support for C services and handlers in
1.5. I am unsure how far I will get supporting client C applications that
use complex types, arrays, etc. I hope to continue working on this in
future releases (1.6?).
