Subject Re: [wsif] using the apache soap provider and a proxy server
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2002 15:01:20 GMT

You have not missed anything.  Adding support for http.* and https.*
properties is on my personal to-do list for SOAP, but I have not made it
down to that item.

Even if/when it is added, a large portion of the Apache SOAP user base seems
to be locked into a particular version, notably 2.2.  Therefore, I think you
may want to consider adding the code to WSIF to accomodate this community.
