Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Axis2 as TLP
Date Sun, 02 Nov 2008 15:52:47 GMT
I'd certainly +1 a new TLP for Axiom. Given that its being used broadly by 
others too I think that makes sense.

However there are complications there too - one of Axiom's KEY values is 
its natural MTOM/XOP awareness. That's a bit hard to justify without the 
relationship to SOAP. Under no condition can we lost that obviously as 
that's one of the foundational bits of Axiom.

Also, I've always wanted to build a type-aware version of Axiom .. one 
that parses directly out of the XML event stream into a typed data model. 
I guess that's a bit of what SXC does too. (The other thing I've long 
wanted to do is a to do a custom parser that avoids copying etc..) 
However, a lot of this extra metadata for parsing would be coming from 
WSDL etc. - which again will tie it to SOAP stuff.

Overall, I think the Axiom TLP makes most sense right now vs. an axis2 TLP 
as that's the most standalone of the lot.
