Subject Re: PROPOSAL: ServiceClient

Though I would rather not have 2 ways of doing the same thing in an alpha
product, there seems to be valid reasons to let it be, albiet deprecated.


Another thought:
Wouldn't it be worthwhile refactoring ServiceClient to extend from
org.apache.axis.rpc  (aka javax.xml.rpc)?
