Thank you Davanum, I'm continuing to work on the upgrade this morning and
sincerely appreciate the feedback. I really want our co. to be able to use
Axis and thank you for your help.

Subject: Re: compatability problems

Kurt,

Am aware of 2 problems...

#1) Embedded versions of axis (CF or JBoss) are old, you would need to
use latest Axis 1.2.1 on all systems.
#2) SAAJ by definition does not support DOM3 which is present in
latest JDK1.5, so you would need to use xerces 2.6 (and not 2.7 which
has DOM3)

Are there other issues you found? 

thanks,
dims
