Subject Re: [Axis2] SOAPMessageContext

Whoa ... what we agreed was that SOAPMessageContext would be a strict
subset of the MessageContext in Axis2. The idea is to let Synapse rule
engine and mediator programmers only have to look at stuff actually
related to the message.

As such I don't think its an option to tweak it in any inconsistent

If you want to do that then its of course possible for Synapse to define
its own MC but I'm pretty sure I'd -1 that on the synapse-dev list .. I
am not convinced that's anything other than pointless reinvention!

Um, is this the same flow in Axis2 or something else? If its the Axis2
flow why do we need it in synapse?

IIRC we already have this; have to look.

If there are inconsistencies let's fix them in Axis2 itself.

That was a decision a long time ago to keep that set together. I
personally am not a fan but it was debated here a while back IIRC and
I'm not inclined to re-opening that at this time.

The user doesn't see or know that; they get a hashtable of properties to
