Subject FW: Is there a 'thinner' client runtime?
Date Thu, 17 Oct 2002 14:24:51 GMT

...and Steve's response.  Just wanted to put this thread over here too in case anyone else
is as backed up on axis-user as I am. :(

Its been discussed, but the notion of client runtime versus server runtime
will (apparently) go away once support for callbacks somehow gets into the
system, be it Soap over SMTP, BEEP or some other trick.

That said, if you can provide a build.xml to create an axis-applet-client
jar containing only the bits that *Everyone* agrees an applet needs, then
I'm sure that even it doesnt go into axis, we can always point to the build
file in the docs and say 'here is how to build a lightweight client'. The
nice side to that approach is that we dont need one 'axis client' jar;
everyone can build up their own with their own options in the jar.

It would be nice to see the client and server broken down into separate jar
files.  I'm calling webservices from within applets.
This particular app is on an extranet so the large download and the policy
files for breaking out of the sandbox are not too much of an inconvenience
but a smaller, sandbox ready client would be a welcome site.
