Subject Re: [Axis2] Stub / Call
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2005 08:33:06 GMT

I wrote a blog entry on this a while ago:

There is also info in the attached document.

I think the solution to this is for us to make the Call injected into the
stub. So the user can get/set the underlying Call object on the stub and
then set any properties on the call object. The benefit to this is that in a
container like Spring or EJB3.0, all the properties on the call object can
be set by injection.
