Definition of type axis2_bool_t based on an enumeration

                 Key: AXIS2C-740
             Project: Axis2-C
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: util
         Environment: Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)
            Reporter: Senaka Fernando

Boolean types have only two states.

As C does not have such a type, an alternate mechanism has been used as, typedef int axis2_bool_t;

Now, legally axis2_bool_t types can have any integer value.

I propose that it should only be limited to two values.

Thus it should be defined as typedef enum {AXIS2_FALSE, AXIS2_TRUE} axis2_bool_t;

in C, types defined in such a manner do accept any integer value. But, when compiled using
a C++ compiler, it would flag an error which should be the desired behavior.

Ex:- in C++, axis2_bool_t myVar = 100; would result in, error: invalid conversion from 'int'
to 'axis2_bool_t'
