Subject Throwing 'AxitFaut's around
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2001 02:44:31 GMT

After some discussion by various IETF folks; I noticed that things like
the SimpleAuth* handlers show how to throw around AxisFaults when for
example a user is not authenticated, or when a service is not found.

These ends up as 500 Status faults on the web end.

Is this according to spec? Or should some of those actually be 300 and 400
for appropriate not found method's, wrong authentication ?

Just wondering - as new sematics for status code have enourmous
ramfications for things like SNMP monitoring on web level; caching, log
file parsing, proxy/gateway traversal and in fact the whole environment
around web servers.

What is the intention of the spec here ? and of axis :-)
