Subject: [VOTE] Release plan of Apache Axis C++ version 1.0

Hi all,

As announced by the previous release plan announcement we are going to
release Axis C++ and following is the updated release plan.

This is the release plan for Axis/C++ version 1.0. The
goal of Axis/C++ version 1.0 is to provide a stable platform
for developing Web services using C/C++ as well as to use Web
services in C/C++ client applications.

Major features of Axis/C++ include:
    - SOAP engine with both client and server support
    - Partial support for both SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2
    - WSDD based deployment with dynamic deployment tools.
    - Support for all basic types, Complex types and Arrays
    - WSDL2WS tool for building following C/C++ components
        Server side - Skeletons and Wrappers
        Client side - Stubs
    - WSDL2WS tool that generates wrappers, which perform
      the following functions. These wrappers act as RPC Providers.
        Method invocation
    - WSDLs hosted statistically in the server.
    - Standalone server (with HTTP support)
    - Web server modules for Apache HTTPD 1.3 (Linux/Windows)
    - Web interface to the deployed services and their WSDLs.
    - Sample web services and client applications.
    - Supportive documentation for developers and users.

The following dates are proposed:
    Code freeze                          October 21, 2003
    Release alpha version            October 24, 2003
    Release beta version             October 31, 2003
    Release 1.0                           November 7, 2003

Once release freeze is achieved, inclusion of fixes into the release
requires consensus of active Axis committers.  Deferring of a fix
requires simple majority.

Fixes are to continue to be made on the "HEAD" of the release.  Once
there is consensus that a particular fix is to be included in the
release, I'll merge it into the branch.  In order to make this as smooth
and as painless a process as possible for the release manager, I'll ask
that committers show restraint in committing unrelated fixes to the HEAD
during this time in areas of the code that might interfere with the
merge process.

Release Criteria:
    - All Axis/C++ functional tests pass.
    - All critical bugs are fixed
    - Basic interop tests pass
    - Confirmation that the released version works on Apache HTTP
      1.3* on Win32 and Linux

Release Manager:
    Susantha Kumara,
