Subject RE: File upload example

Just to clarify:

1- The JAX-RPC API is not a "required package" within J2SE. It is an
"optional package" in J2SE.
IF the JCP decides that it wants to include intergrated, required support
for SOAP in J2SE, they will need to develop a client-only JAX-RPC API
(comparable to Java IDL) -- and that's what would be included in J2SE. Sun's
JAX-RPC reference implementation (RI) isn't appropriate to be included with
J2SE. The JAX-RPC RI *requires* Tomcat, which is not part of J2SE. Sun's
JWSDP is a separate add-on product that runs on J2SE.

2- The JAX-RPC API will be a "required package" in J2EE, but that doesn't
require or even encourage you to use Sun's JAX-RPC RI. The API and the RI
are different things. In order to get certified as a J2EE 1.4 compliant
application server, a J2EE vendor will need to add support for (i.e.
implement) the JAX-RPC, SAAJ, JAXR, and WSEE APIs. Sun will include the
JAX-RPC RI in the J2EE 1.4 RI and also in Sun ONE Application Server. But I
can guarantee that WebLogic, WebSphere, JRun, Borland ES, IONA ASP, JBoss,
OrionServer, Sybase EAServer, and all the other third party J2EE servers
will *NOT* include Sun's JAX-RPC RI. These products will include other
JAX-RPC implementations. And, oh by the way, WebSphere, JRun, Borland ES,
JBoss, EAServer, and propbably OrionServer will all use Axis.

There is absolutely no reason to switch from Axis to Sun's JAX-RPC RI. I'm
sure you can make an argument to your management to make them see clearly.
Axis will be much more pervasive than Sun's JAX-RPC RI.

Best regards,
Anne
