  -How to use the current version of the code....
  -----------------------------------------------
  -(these instructions assume tomcat)
  +             Axis (Apache eXtensible Interaction System)
  +             -------------------------------------------
  +             Alpha 1 Release             August 13, 2001
   
  -- Deploy Axis in Tomcat
  -  - Add the following section to your conf/server.xml file:
  -    <Context path="/axis" docBase="d:/xml-axis/java/webapps/axis" 
  -             debug ="0" reloadable="true" />
  -    Replace "d:/" with the path to your version of axis
   
  -- Deploy services
  -  - Two ways to deploy new services:
  -    1 - From the tomcat directory, run:
  -          java org.apche.axis.utils.Admin <whatever>.xml
  -    2 - Once tomcat is running, run (from anywhere/any dir):
  -          java org.apache.axis.client.AdminClient <whatever>.xml
  -        
  -There is a sample service in java/samples/stock - this will illustrate
  -how to deploy a service that consists of a chain of handlers on the
  -client and the server.
  +Welcome to Axis!  You'll find documentation in the docs/ directory.
   
  -Format of deployment xml files:
  --------------------------------
  -(This is temporary until WSDD is ready)
  +Please read the release notes (release-notes.html) in this directory for
  +details on the current release.
   
  -<deploy>
  -  <handler name="log" class="org.apache.axis.handlers.LogHandler" />
  -  <handler name="rpc-dispatch" class="org.apache.axis.handlers.RPCDispatchHandle
  -r" />
  -  <handler name="echo" class="org.apache.axis.handlers.EchoHandler" />
  -  <handler name="error" class="org.apache.axis.handlers.ErrorHandler" />
  -
  -  <chain name="pre" flow="log" />
  -  <chain name="echoChain" input="log" pivot="echo" output="log" />
  -  <chain name="errorChain" input="log,log" pivot="error" output="log,log" />
  -
  -  <service name="AdminService" handler="admin" />
  -  <service name="EchoService" handler="echoChain" />
  -  <service name="ErrorService" handler="errorChain" />
  -  <service name="ErrorService1" handler="error" />
  -
  -  <chain name="JavaRPC" flow="log,rpc-dispatch,log" />
  -
  -  <service name="urn:GetQuote" handler="JavaRPC" >
  -    <option name="className" value="samples.stockquote.StockQuoteService" />
  -    <option name="methodName" value="getQuote" />
  -  </service>
  -</deploy>
  -
  -The outermost element can be either 'deploy' or 'undeploy'.
  -The child elements of the root must be one of the following (and must have
  -the specified attributes):
  -  handler
  -    - name
  -    - class
  -  chain
  -    - name
  -    - flow 
  -        comma separated list of handlers
  -        for defining a single chain
  -    or
  -    - input,pivot,output
  -        3 different attributes
  -        input/output are comma separated list of handlers, pivot is a
  -        single handler
  -  service
  -    - name
  -    - handler
  -
  -Any of these allow for 'option' sub-elements to allow for name/value pairs
  -of options.
  +Thanks from all of us on the Axis team for downloading the package; help
  +us make it better by sending comments to axis-dev@xml.apache.org.

  <h2>Axis Alpha Release Notes</h2>
  
  <p>This is the <a href="http://xml.apache.org/axis/releases.html"> 
  alpha release</a> of the <a href="http://xml.apache.org/axis">
  Axis SOAP library</a>.  (Wondering what Axis is?  Please see our
  <a href="xml.apache.org/axis/faq.html">FAQ</a>.)</p>
  
  <p>This is an alpha release, and hence is not feature complete.  The main
  missing features include:</p>
  
  <ul>
  <li>No support for SOAP attachments
  <li>Deployment syntax not finalized
  <li>Incomplete Apache SOAP 2.2 deployment descriptor support
  <li>Minimal testing in EJB / application server frameworks
  <li>No support for WSDL, XML-RPC, SMTP
  <li>Limited documentation
  </ul>
  
  <p>The Axis team is working on all of these missing features.</p>
  
  <p>So, why an alpha release?</p>
  
  <p>The Axis code already has:</p>
  
  <ul>
  <li>Significantly higher performance than Apache SOAP 2.2
  <li>Good interoperability with other SOAP implementations
  <li>A streaming-oriented model for message parsing (SAX, not DOM)
  <li>A modular, configurable message handling architecture
  <li>A pluggable transport framework
  <li>An extensive package and functional test suite
  </ul>
  
  <p>Early adopters and advanced SOAP developers will find this release to be of
  interest.  Most Apache SOAP users, and those who need a fully featured
  next-version replacement for Apache SOAP 2.2, should hold off at least
  until Axis's beta release.  Progress towards that beta release may be
  viewed on Axis's <a href="http://xml.apache.org/axis/requirements.html">
  requirements and status page</a>.</p>
