But it *is* a part of the official zip.  Like I said in my last comment:

Isn't the axis-1_2beta/webapps/axis/ directory the equivalent of a war file? 

Also, if embedding Axis, everyone's war file will not be different.  I embed it and my war
file is identical to the one included in the distribution.  With JBoss' default configuration,
you can deploy Axis and not touch the WEB-INF directory to load your classes.

My point is: you provide a war file.  I use the exact war that you provide, without touching
it.  I'd imagine that anyone else who embeds Axis does the same thing.

I don't see how there can be any harm done by providing this war file.  It is deployable and
usable in its untouched form.   From my perspective, it's no different than a jar.

I'm a Maven user.  Although Axis 1.2 beta was released a while back, it is still not available
on the public Maven repository at  This is probably because no users
have taken the initiative to request it yet.

Fairly recently, the directory was created, which is mirrored
to ibiblio every 4 hours.  My proposal is to place the Axis jars for 1.2 beta into this directory,
as well as the Axis webapp.

I'm a committer and will do this if no one objects.  It would be great if this could be done
each time a new Axis version is released, this way
Maven users can simply update their version in their descriptor and start using the new version
right away.
