Subject RE: Towards an Axis 1.5 Release (Reprised)
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2007 20:29:21 GMT
I'll be willing to help. Sorry I missed the first note - it got lost in 
the axis2 notes.  As for the failing tests, we should just remove the ones 
that don't work due to the remote site being gone. I have them commented 
out in my local version and everything else works.  One other thing I'd 
love to also do is step up to the latest wsdl4j to add support for soap 
1.2 constructs in wsdl.  Right now just one test fails when I test it but 
I haven't have time to investigate why.

RE: Towards an Axis 1.5 Release (Reprised)

I am +1 to an Axis 1.5 addressing critical issues (and maybe even not so
critical) in the bug system.

I would recommend adding
to the list.

My product is still on Axis 1.2.1.  The reason is because Axis 1.x has
lost a critical mass of people (myself included) who understand enough
about how it works to really evaluate patches.  We then start taking
'harmless' patches that end up breaking other stuff.  So at this point I
am staying with the bug set I know. :-(

As far as helping out, I am in a long closedown cycle right now, but I
should be able to take a 1.5 beta release and run it through our web
service regression suite sometime early this summer.

Subject: Towards an Axis 1.5 Release (Reprised)


I sent out an email on March 30th soliciting responses to a proposed 
release plan for an Axis 1.5 release.  I haven't gotten any responses 
to it yet (though I did see Dims reference it in response to a user's 
question the following week) so I thought I'd respectfully request 
your thoughts on the matter once again.  Here's a link to the 
proposed release plan once again:

Before work on Axis 1.5 can truly begin, we need to get the tests 
working. Currently, the Axis 1.4 and Axis 1.x trunk test suites 
cannot be run successfully. I've already put a little work into this, 
and opened two new issues in the Axis JIRA to track the problems: (Tests throw errors 
when run from within an svn working directory) - NOTE: I've attached 
a patch with a potential fix in JIRA for this one (Tests depending on 
the services hosted at cannot run)

Obviously the second problem is by far the greater one -- it's due to 
the fact that the host is no longer 
responding, so the services that the tests depended on cannot be 
accessed.  I'm hoping to get some input on how best to solve this 
problem, and have put forth the options as I see them in the JIRA 
issue itself.  I plan to tackle the problem, but I'd really like to 
get input on which way to proceed.

I'd also really like to get input on my release plan proposal.  Is 
anyone else interested in working on Axis 1.5?
