Hi Amila,

Thanks for summarizing the conversation. I take it your summary is for the 
Axis2 server bundle that's been discussed. Two issues:

1. Will the 5 Axis2 jars be rolled up into a single Axis2-server jar as 
has been requested and discussed?
2. You listed
Woden has an Axiom based implementation that I thought was contributed to 
support Axis2. Is the Axiom implementation not in use in Axis2?

Re: [Axis2] Axis2 Release Restructuring

So shall we first conclue what should be included into the minimal 

I would like to discribe the minimal distribution as follows,
It inclues the minimal set of jars which some one needs to creates a 
using either 
1. Contract first approach
         here we going to provide only the default data binding support
2. Code first approach 
         POJO support

and access them using the generated stub or 
RPCService client. Here he can use addressing since it is a basic we
service spec and only with http transport.

So the minimal distribution contains the following features
1. Codegen support with adb
2. POJO support 
3. MTOM (when we includes the axiom and axis2 kernal anyway we get this)
4. Addressing
5. Samples ( only for above features)

is this enogh or is there any thing to add or remove?

As I guess here are the jars we need for that, 

Axis2 jars
1. axis2-adb-codegen-SNAPSHOT.jar
2. axis2-adb-SNAPSHOT.jar
3. axis2-codegen-SNAPSHOT.jar
4. axis2-java2wsdl-SNAPSHOT.jar
5. axis2-kernel-SNAPSHOT.jar

ws  jars
1. axiom-api-20071017.164440-781.jar 
2. axiom-impl-20071017.164440-780.jar (
(do we need axiom-dom-20071017.164440-780.jar?)
3. neethi-20071017.164823-761.jar
4. woden-api-1.0-incubating-20071018.161106-2.jar
5. woden-impl-dom-1.0-incubating-20071018.161106-2.jar 
6. wsdl4j-1.6.2.jar
7. XmlSchema-SNAPSHOT.jar

other jars
1. activation-1.1.jar
2. annogen-0.1.0.jar
3. backport-util-concurrent-2.2.jar
4. commons-codec-1.3.jar
5. commons-fileupload-1.1.1.jar 
6. commons-httpclient-3.0.1.jar
7. commons-io-1.2.jar
8. commons-logging-1.1.jar
9. geronimo-annotation_1.0_spec-1.1.jar
10. geronimo-stax-api_1.0_spec-1.0.jar
11. httpcore-4.0-alpha5.jar
12. httpcore-nio-4.0-alpha5.jar 
13. httpcore-niossl-4.0-alpha5.jar
14. jalopy-1.5rc3.jar
15. jaxen-1.1.1.jar
16. jettison-1.0-RC1.jar
17. log4j-1.2.14.jar
18. stax-api-1.0.1.jar
19. wstx-asl-3.2.1.jar
20. xalan-2.7.0.jar
21. xercesImpl-2.8.1.jar
22. xml-apis-1.3.03.jar

Are there any thing to add or remove?
Here any way 34 jars are there. and we have left 24 jars.

Exactly yes. I am not sure whether we need to expand full distro also in
to two. Are we releasing all the modules with our current standard distro.

Agreed. That is why I made this a proposal rather than a vote :). We
discussed this packaging issues couple of times and changed packaging
couple of time. When Axis2 evolves and we get more insight in to user 
experience, we might want to change ourselves to cater for this
requirements. I myself found it bit difficult/confused to use Axis2 once
as a user. That is why I am proposing sth like this.

Yes, let's discuss about this. And we might also want to revise this 
once the next release manager (Amila will it be you ;) ) try to
implement this packaging proposal.

So are we agreed to this three level distro?
