  -  We have changed how we map http URLs to packages, such that any directories in the

   <h3>Changes from 1.0 to 1.1</h3>
   <ul>
  -
  +  <li>Vastly improved SOAP 1.2 support
  +  <li>There is a new email transport in transport/mail
  +  <li>Added serializers/deserializers for Castor compatibility 
  +  <li>Improved WSDL schema generation APIs for custom types 
  +  <li>Added CORBA and RMI providers 
  +  <li>Improved EJBProvider's ability to be a &quot;good EJB citizen&quot;
(deals 
  +    better with JNDI, etc)
  +  <li>Improved multiref deserialization code 
     <li>Axis supports JMS for reliable messaging between client and server. Note 
       that the actual wire format of JMS messages is vendor-specific at present, 
       so you may not be able to use this to connect arbitrary JMS clients and servers 
       without special bridging software. Refer to your particular JMS vendor for 
       details. (rule-of-thumb is &quot;if you can get a JMS connection working, 
  -    we can talk SOAP over it.&quot; :))
  -    
  -  <li>We include a more recent version of wsdl4j.jar (23/mar/2003).
  -
  -  <li>Log4J 1.2.8 is the version of log4J we use, though Axis still works with
  -   older versions (i.e. we dont use the XML configuration mechanism.).
  -
  -  <li>Many more WSDL and interop issues reported (thank you!) and fixed.
  -  
  -  <li>One late breaking interop fix was a workaround for a bug in
  -  .NET1.0, which does not like empty arrays very much. This fix is not
  -  enabled by default. If you have trouble with .NET1.0 clients handling
  -  arrays, look up <b>axis.sendMinimizedElements</b> in 
  -  the global configuaration section of the reference manual. 
  -  
  -  <li>Axis Ant tasks are now documented, and are much enhanced.

  +  <li>We include a more recent version of wsdl4j.jar (23/mar/2003). 
  +  <li>The misnamed org.apache.axis.encoding.DefaultSOAP12TypeMappingImpl is now 
  +    called DefaultSOAPEncodingTypeMappingImpl (the old class is still there but 
  +    deprecated)

     <li>Axis now includes a Castor serializer, handing off XML marshalling to <a
href="http://castor.exolab.org/">Castor</a>. 
       Castor integration offers schema validation and autogenerated Java classes 
       from a Schema. Pending documentation and tests, this code is left for the 
       experienced Castor user, who should look at the classes in org.apache.axis.encoding.ser.castor

       to discover what is available.

     <li>Fixed a bug where clients running Java1.4 needed servlet.jar on their classpath

  -    a bug</a> with Axis shutdown on Tomcat 3.3.1
  -  <li>Various documentation tweaks: improved installation guide, more reference documentation
  -      and a new security guide for anyone using Axis in production.
  -  <li>On the subject of security, three security issues were fixed; two related to
XML
  -      entity/file inclusion on inbound messages and one potentially enabling cross-site-scripting.
  -  <li>Tcpmon lets you specify delays in message handling: sleep times in milliseconds
  -    every so-many bytes sent or received. This is useful if you want to see what happens
  -    to your client application over a slow link. Usually it becomes clear that your client
  -    application grinds to a halt unless all the calls are in a separate thread from
  -    any GUI.
  -  <li>Attachments are extended with direct access to the filename, and the
  -  ability to detach the file from the <tt>AttachmentPart</tt> so it wont
  -  get deleted on cleanup. Yes, attachments should now get automatically cleaned
  -  up when their owning <tt>AttachmentPart</tt> is finalized. Look at the
  -  javadocs for the specifics.
