Subject Re: Releasing transports 1.0 - dependency resolutions
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2009 17:15:26 GMT
The local module and http module (source only) is now moved to Axis2.
Please give it a try and see if things look ok. If so, we'll merge it
to 1.5 branch.

I kept the http module in the Transport project but I had to change
the artifact name to prevent a conflict with the Axis2 http transport
module. Btw, I think that the Transport project should have its own
group id (e.g org.apache.axis2.transport instead of org.apache.axis2).
The Transport http module only has the tests now. If we could refactor
the tests somehow that would be great but I guess it's not critical
for 1.5.
