Subject RE: JMS transport not in 1.1 binary distribution
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2003 14:13:04 GMT

+1 to the extensions directory.  If this is created I would be happy to
put the Sonic extensions in there.  However, do you envision this as a
1.1 deliverable or something for the future?  

For 1.1 perhaps it would be best to build everything into axis.jar so
that we don't destabilize the build process.  For the next point release
we can pursue the generic extensions mechanisms you propose.  Comments?

IMO we could generic this with a general 'axis extension jar'; have a
descriptor that lists classes that implement some optional plugin
that get autocalled on plug in as AxisEngine boots up. This would be
for handlers, transports and other things.

Speaking of extensions, say I had something I was looking to commit that
definately an axis extension. Where should it go in CVS. I propose a new
/extensions subdir for these things, which are not proposals but  not
codebase either.
