  -<p>Axis C++ 1.3 includes the following features in addition to the core engine:</p>
  -<p><li>A simple stand-alone server, known as simple_axis_server.</li>
  -<li>Apache web server modules, to help deploy services.</li>
  -<li>Supports the Web Service Description Language (WSDL).</li>
  -<li>Emitter tooling that generates C/C++ source code from WSDL files. </li>
  -<li>Some sample programs, and a test framework. </li> </p>
  -<br> <br>
  -<h1>Key features of Axis C++ 1.3</h1>
  -<p><b><li>Parser and Transport abstraction layers</li></b>
  -One could switch between parsers and different transport implementations. This yields the
user the much needed flexibility in choosing different external libraries. Users could extend
parser abstraction layer API and transport abstraction layer API to implement their own parser/transport
libs to suite their custom requirements. 
  -<p><b><li>Pull Parser Model </li></b> <br>
  -Axis C++ uses SAX (event-based) pull parsing model to achieve significant speeds. <br>
  -<b><li>XML Parsers</li></b> <br>
  -Both Expat parser and Xerces parser are supported. Any other XML parser could be seamlessly
integrated with the parser abstraction layer <br> <br>
  -<b><li>Speedier client transport</li></b> <br>
  -Axis C++ is now equipped with a client transport that has proved to be much faster than
its early implementations. <br> <br>
  -<b><li>Apache modules</li> </b> <br>
  -Both Apache 1.3.x releases and Apache 2.0.x releases of the most widely used web servers
are supported. <br> <br>
  -<b><li>Multiple platforms</li></b> <br>
  -Axis C++ have been tested on Linux and Windows platforms and proved to work. Efforts are
also underway to support platforms such as Solaris and AIX, and so far, have had success with
those platforms as well. <br> <br>
  -<b><li>WSDL support</li></b> <br>
  -Axis C++ WSDL processing tools are based on Axis Java 1.2 tools and have improved complex
types support. Both C and C++ source code generation is supported. <br> <br>
  -<b><li>Documentation </li> </b> <br> 
  -The Linux Installation Guide,Linux User Guide,Windows Installation Guide,Windows User Guide
& Windows Developers Guide have been modified and WSDL2WS Tool Guide,Memory Management
Guide & ANT Build Guide was added to the site. <br> <br>
  -<b><li>Self sufficient</li></b> <br>
  -Axis C++ is now equipped with simple_axis_server. Hence all one needs additionally is an
XML parser to try out Axis C++. (Not even Apache web server is required if you do not plan
to do high level deployment) Soon Axis C++ would have its own implementation of a pull parser,
with which core Axis C++ features could be used without requiring any other external libraries.
<br> <br>
  -<b><li>Interoperability</li></b> <br>
  -Numerous tests have been done to test the ability of Axis C++ client side to interoperate
with Axis Java server side and the results are successful. Efforts are under way to make the
Axis C++ server side to inter operate with Axis Java client side. 
  -<p>We hope you will enjoy using Axis C++. <br> <br>
  - Numerous efforts are currently underway to improve Axis C++ as a whole. Please have a
look at the <a href="">TODO
page </a> to learn about 1.4 and 1.5 plans for Axis C++. <br> <br>
  +<h1>Key features of Axis C++ 1.4 Alpha </h1> </p>
  +<p><b>SSL Implementation</b> </p> <br> <br>
  +<p><b>Cookie based session support for the client side.</b> <br>
  +Client is capable of tracking 'Set-Cookie' HTTP header sent with the service response and
set the 'Cookie' HTTP header in the outgoing requests accordingly. </p> <br> <br>
  +<p><b>SOAP header based session support for the client side.</b> <br>
  +This enables an Axis c++ client to have a session conversation with a session scoped Axis
java Web Service. 
  +</p> <br> 
  +<h1>The Improvements</h1>
  +<p> <b>Axis Engine is pure C++</b> <br> 
  +<li>Changed mallocs/frees/strdups to news/deletes </li><br>
  +<li>.h header files were changed to .hpp</li> <br>
  +<li>structs were changed to classes</li> <br> <br> </p>
  +<p><b>Refactor WSDL2WS </b> <br>
  +<li>Corrected the issue with classpath ordering - order is no longer important</li>
  +<li>Identified and removed unused classes </li> <br>
  +<li> identified and removed all duplicate classes. </li> <br>
  +<li>Re-organized class inheritance and removed all duplicated methods. </li>
  +<li>Decomposed some of the larger methods into smaller, more manageable methods.
</li> <br>
  +<li>Removed all compilation warnings </li> <br>
  +<li>Improved readability of code </li> <br>
  +<li>Corrected spelling mistakes in class names and methods</li> <br>
<br> </p>
  +<p><b>Split client, server common includes </b> <br> <br>
  +The common header files have now been moved to include/axis <br> <br> </p>
  +<p><b>Pre-defined paths were removed from Axis CPP Conf library names</b>
<br> <br>
  +Fully-qualified paths were  removed, leaving only the library name. <br> <br>
  +<p><b>Eliminated warnings </b> <br> <br> </p>
  +<p><b>Handler Tutorial </b> <br> <br>
  +Handlers are plugable components of Axis C++. This guide gives you details of creating
your own handlers.  <br> <br> </p>
  +<p><b>Provided access to the body of the SOAP message </b><br>
  +Handler writers can get access to the SOAP Body.
  +<br> <br></p>
  +<p><b>Resolved the conflict in const/non-const method calls for Basic Node
objects</b> <br> <br>
  + <br> <br> </p>
  +<p><b>Added support to store Complex Object properties</b> <br>
  +Added support to store complex objects in MessageData.
  +<br> <br> </p>
  +<p><b>Added the facility to set a new SOAP body to the DeSerializer from a
Handler</b> <br><br>
  +Once a Handler gets access to the SOAP body it is the duty of the Handler to reset the
new SOAP body through the SoapDeSerializer's "setNewSoapBody" method. <br> <br>
  +<p>Added a transport that supports IPV6. <br> <br> </p>
