Subject Re: Does anyone use the message style services in AXIS or is every one using RPC style only?
Date Thu, 14 Oct 2004 19:21:48 GMT
Hi Tom,

I have to agree wholeheartedly on this.  Almost every reference guide,
tutorial, and document seem to be organized around RPC (which also seems
to have limited/harder use, especially when complex messages are needed...
nested tags, attributes, etc.)

Thank you,
