Subject Re: [Axis2] Fwd: Introducing ConfigurationContextFactory.getConfigurationContext()
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2007 09:11:00 GMT
Um... a couple of questions..
1. How can we have multiple configuration contexts active in the same
JVM if the factory hold the configuration context int a static field?
2. DO you intend to deprecate methods such as
MessageContext.getConfigurationContext()?
