Subject Re: How to implement a serializer/deserializer
Date Fri, 24 Jan 2003 15:22:43 GMT
I agree with you and I'm reading the Axis source code. I checked your 
site several times and found a lot of useful information. Can I ask you 
a big favour: put a tutorial there about how to write custom 
serializer/deserializer. That would benefit all of us here. I'd like to 
contribute once I figured it out.

Thank you very much.
PS. I already order the Axis book.
