Subject Re: What is the Relationship between JAXM and AXIS?
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2002 14:50:45 GMT
The JAXM interfaces seem to overlap and provide the same interfaces that the 
Axis classes do.
Will these Axis classes become implementations of JAXM? Will they coexist? 
Will the Axis interfaces disappear?
I guess my expectation is that something like JAXP will unify all Java 
implementations so that a common interface can be used no matter what 
implementation will be used.
