Subject RE: [VOTE] Re: XML Schema support for Axis (Contrib from Infravio)
Date Thu, 14 Nov 2002 20:45:34 GMT
Now that this is accepted, may I suggest that rather than making this a 
part of the Axis code, that it becomes a separate project and that we 
encourage the folks at Infravio to work with the Eclipse folks to put 
together, at the very least, a common set of interfaces and an abstract 
factory mechanism that would allow folks to choose their impl?

As per Dims request I am attaching the Xml Schema source files with the
root package name changed from core.common to org.apache.axis.xsd .

Thanks
