Subject AW: Downloading Axis2/c 1.6.0 - Also, OpenVMS anyone?
Date Mon, 13 May 2013 12:43:54 GMT
Hi Dave


My port is based on a OLD axis2/C-1.1, zlib, libxml2, it is some 8 years

At that time directory structures were not as established as today.


you need zlib and libxml2 as well and you have to build test and run
them first.

i.e. libxml2 has a lot of test and test resources and they run to a very
large degree.

Good to know they run as many thing is based on it later.


When I started with this  port, nothing was there, and I was developing
all the mmk description 

files myself.


So - You need a good understanding about mmk description files and in
particular about macros 

to use and their limits in mmk.


Then you start to build zlib, then libxml2, then axutil, then axiom and
then the engine modules etc.

all controlled by 2 levels of mmk make files. 


Level 1 mmk make files coordinates the build sequences of the
subsystems, while 

Level 2 mmk make files does the fine granular job of controlling the
build of the various subsystems.


NOTE: mmk is not make or nmake or anything like that, and in certain
aspects tricky to use.

So to begin you need your running copy of mmk on ITANIUM OpenVMS as


Do you have it?


If you can build your axis2-server component, you still need to fully
debug it. 

So the server is debugged, but loading modules and services, is very
special on OpenVMS 

as a sharable image is not the same as a DLL, and once loaded, can't be

So there is a need to still do some more investigation and debugging. 


This is as it is because we used only zlib, libxml2, axutil and
axiom.exe (all shares) in our legacy server code. 


And our main service is based on axis2-1.6.1/java which then passes a
large OM (SOAP/XML) via a HP WSIT 3.5 kit, 

as xml string into the legacy part, an out of process server. in the
legacy C/ PASCAL part we re-constructs 

(deserializes) the received xml string into a axiom OM (SOAP/XML) to be
parsed and used by our legacy server 

wrapper code.


In the next year, I plan to upgrade to a newer version of axis2/C, but
right now, that is not an issue for me.


So let me know if you like that way to go or we can discuss what you
like to do, maybe there are other solutions.

Hi Dave,

            Yes, the links on the page seem to be broken :( Can someone
fix them??

             If you want 1.6 you can download it from the svn repository
