Subject Re: [Axis2] Engaging modules from classpath
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 12:48:24 GMT
I believe the ability to have a single deployment descriptor that provided the information
about all the modules needed by a project would be a much cleaner model than having an XML
file per module. I am not advocating taking any support away, but just saying that if we added
the capability for a single XML file it would be useful. Also, it would reduce the overhead
of having to load the separate XML files into memory (though I realize this isn't critical).

I am 0+ on this , I did not find a very useful use case for this. And if
want we can do that by dropping multiple .jar files. I personal opinion
is we do not need to have that much of flexibility.

If we do so , some one could ask , how about adding moduels.xml to
module.mar rather than having module.xml
