Looks good to me.

-if you link to j2ee.jar you get servlets, mail, activation, some others
for free
-ant1.5.1 is recommended
-you can also compile with jikes,, for bonus build speed.
-if you want a redistributable you know works with java1.3, build on java1.3

I recommend you dont put this in build.xml but instead start something in
docs, say building-axis.html. In the build file we can just point to this

Subject: RE: Few questions on the build


I finally managed to get most of the build working. But there were
things like which version to use and where to start that always trouble
me. Also after seeing this thread someone had mailed me about the
difficulties he had faced while building axis and how he had abandoned
that idea. So I guess making a small documentation to talk about
building axis is required. It is there in Developer's-guide. But it is
kinda outdated. So i am attaching a step by step process of doing the
build. Also included is the recommended version for each of the
required/optional components. I would realise appreciate if you can take
a look at this and say if it is ok. I will then go ahead and make the
required changes to the docs/build.xml.
