Subject Re: soapmeter (a tcpmonitor spin-off)
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2003 14:26:12 GMT

One of the things I like about tcpmon is that its simple - it doesn't try
to do too much.  All its supposed to do, at its core, is just watch tcpip
traffic.  So when people want to extend it to do more than that I get
worried.  That said - let me tell you what I've told other people - while I
don't like the idea of changing the core tcpmon to do stuff like you've
proposed (mainly because it moves it even more towards a SOAP monitor
instead of a tcpip monitor) - I do, however, like the idea of adding
plug-points where things like what you've developed can be optionally
plugged in.  But that's just me.

Subject:    soapmeter (a tcpmonitor spin-off)


I'm writing to ask you some questions about the TcpMonitor which
is distributed with Apache Axis.  Namely, are you still involved
in Axis-related development?  And would you have any interest
in furthering the development of Soapmeter, a spin-off of your
TcpMonitor code?

Soapmeter helps you to troubleshoot web services and other SOAP-based
applications.  It captures the messages exchanged between two SOAP
nodes, and improves your understanding of this activity by creating a
graphical representation of the XML content.
