From "James M Snell" <jasn...@us.ibm.com>
Subject [Vote] Re: Asynchronous Transport in Apache Axis, JMS and beyond
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2002 23:36:49 GMT
I like the basic approach and have a proposal.

For the Axis 1.0 release, I'd like to introduce my initial prototype (with 
it's several flaws) as a "Preview".  Not perfect, but better than what's 
currently available and functional.  I just ran through all of the 
functional tests and everything checks out.  The code works, the tests 
work, etc etc.  Then, for post 1.0, we can work on a more fully fleshed 
out approach that brings together the various ideas that have been 
discussed in this thread (specifically, those put forth by the Sonic 
folks, Alek and Steve).

Please vote -1 or +1 .
