Subject [Axis2] Understanding Axis2 dependencies
Date Sun, 14 Oct 2007 16:32:15 GMT
I posted this to the axis-users list and didn't really get any bites. 
Given the conversation on simplifying the Axis2 install by consolidating 
the Axis2 jars I thought I'd post to the dev list as well.

Axis2 has 39 dependencies listed below. I'd like to understand why Axis2 
has so many dependencies. Are some of these dependencies  optional or can 
they be made optional?

log4j-1.2.14.jar                      Logging - Is this optional? I don't 
                                      always want to use Log4J - for 
                                      example, when working with Eclipse.

                                      project? Is this just used by the 
                                      Axis2 runtime or is it just the 
                                      standalone SOAP monitor tool? 
stax-api-1.0.1.jar                    XML pull parsing - I think this 
                                      should be replaced in the next 
                                      version with Geronimo's 
                                      API as Axiom has made the change

xercesImpl-2.8.1.jar                  DOM parser - Does Axis2 actually 
                                      need a DOM parser? I thought 
                                      everything was done with 
                                      pull parsing.
