Subject Re: Plan for updating axis(yes it is axis 1 not 2)
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 01:37:35 GMT
  Thank you for reply, Tom :)

Yes axis 1 has a long history, and now there is axis2(also xfire, etc.) 
for web service. But axis 1 still has its value, as I insist. For one 
thing, the web server with jdk 1.4 or lower needs it, as I mentioned 
before, for another, Eclipse 3.5 J2EE formally support axis, which also 
indicates the importance of my favorite(for evidence see the 
attachment). In fact, I just use axis 1 in a project with weblogic 8.1. 
As to performance issue, I think axis 1 is good enough for my 
requirements, so... :)

OK Let's come to the point. The first step of my plan is to make the 
document up to date, correct the outdated links which are not valid anymore.
I will shortly give out a detailed plan.
Hope for any advice.

to moving Axis to a (final?) 1.4.1 or 1.5 release.
