Subject RE: Eclipse update manager site for Axis?
Date Sun, 06 Mar 2005 23:28:01 GMT
Hi Ravi,

Thanks for the suggestion. I think the correct way is to have one update 
site, and put Axis, Ant, etc into seperate categories. Since Axis is one 
of the bigger piece involved in the WTP project, that's why I started 
here. If I want to start the discussion about having one update site, do 
you know which mailing list I should use? I can't find a general Apache 
dev mailing list.

RE: Eclipse update manager site for Axis?

Hi Jeff,
That would be great .... 
One question .... is your proposal limited to Axis or consolidate Xerces, 
Ant, etc under an update site ?

Subject: Eclipse update manager site for Axis?


I work on the Eclipse Web Tools Platform Project (WTP). One of the 
features included in WTP is the ability to generate a Web service that 
targets Axis. Obviously, in order to do that, a user would need to 
"install" Axis into WTP. The install steps are not easy, in fact, they are 
quite painful... What would be nice is if we can host an Eclipse update 
manager site on the Axis Web site, so that users can just point to the URL 
and Axis will be installed automatically. I'll be interested in 
contributing this piece of the work. Any comments/suggestions?
