Subject RE: Contribution to SimpleAxisServer

This is great stuff!  We are very close to cutting a 1.1 release.  We have passed the JAX-RPC
and SAAJ test suites.

This code can go in to the tree as soon as we branch the 1.1 source.

Could you please create Bugzilla enhancement request and attach these files?  I am going on
vacation next week for some time, so I may not be around to check this in.  You should be
able to get Glen or Dims to check it in for you while I am away.

Thanks again!

Importance: High

Hi Tom,

I've done some simple changes to the SimpleAxisServer
to make it more production ready.

The changes are:

Added a LRU based session cleanup mechanism:
I've used a simple LRU cleanup mechanism for sessions,
I've utilized jakarta commons org.apache.commons.collections.LRUMap .
(needs to add commons-collections.jar to the Axis)

Added a thread pooling mechanism:

modified getAxisServer() method's accessibility
from "protected" to "public"

Commented the following line of code from stop() mehotd:
No need to kill the JVM(this help us to use SimpleAxisServer 
in a service based architecture without any problem)

Added two new options to be used in starting
SimpleAxisServer from command line:
-t for maximum thread pool size(default value is 100)
-m for maximum session count(default value is 100)
java org.apache.axis.transport.http.SimpleAxisServer -t 150 -m 1000 

I've attached the source codes to this email,
Could you please let me know your idea? 
Since I've not CVS access, could you please commit them
if they are ok?
