Subject Planned Post 1.1 Release Changes for the IME stuff
Date Fri, 06 Dec 2002 19:57:02 GMT
Ok, I've just been looking at the changes that are going to be necessary 
(AFTER THE 1.1 RELEASE) to deliver the first phase of the async IME 
integration into the main Axis code base.  Now that the interfaces 
themselves are mostly stablized and the base implementation mostly 
complete, the next phase is to start migrating the Transports over to the 
new model.  This change will involve change all Transport Senders into 
MessageExchangeProviders rather than Handlers.  The following files will 
need to be changed.

org.apache.axis.server.AxisServer
org.apache.axis.configuration.FileProvider
org.apache.axis.configuration.NullProvider
org.apache.axis.configuration.SimpleProvider
org.apache.axis.deployment.wsdd.WSDDDeployment
org.apache.axis.deployment.wsdd.WSDDDeployableItem
org.apache.axis.deployment.wsdd.WSDDTransport
org.apache.axis.EngineConfiguration
org.apache.axis.AxisEngine
org.apache.axis.client.AxisClient

There may be some other files that are affected, but these are the 
biggies.

The goals of this phase in the transition are:

1. Maintain complete backwards compatibility with all existing Transport 
implementations and deployment descriptors
2. Maintain complete backwards compatibility with all applications 
currently using Axis (changes will not propograte up to the client API 
level)

These changes are targeted for the Axis 1.2 release.  No changes will be 
made to these files with regards to this project until after the 1.1 
release goes gold.

Key todo's other than the code changes:

1. Test cases for the base implementation (in progress)
2. Documentation (in progress)
