Actually we saw the the AXIS implementation was sending the HTML and XML in
different packets where XML-RPC was doing it in one.  I looked in the
org.apache.axis.transport.http.HTTPSender and saw it was doing two
consecutive socket writes (one for the HTML headers and one for the XML
payload).  When I changed the code to do one socket write instead of two the
AXIS performance increased 5-fold.  I was running my tests using a Windows
client (Linux server) and feel this may be an operating system issue

first step in direction to do any performance evaluation is to decide
exactly what
to evaluate (it seems you evaluate method invocations but what is on the
and how to repeat evaluation (so others could run tests and compare results)
- so could you give more details about your setup, tests used and how
other people could reproduce your results?
