Subject Re: SWA multipart/related boundary
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 10:01:20 GMT
Hi All

I would like to ask if possible that the following be added to axis 2.

1) Control of SWA attachment types. Base64 or Binary for example.

I understand and agree that binary is the best but not all target
servers/applications will necessarily support binary attachments. This I
suppose is not critical as one can create a datahandler to take care of
it, but it would be great to have.

2) That the Mime boundary used in the header is used to end the message
for example:

POST /uri HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: multipart/related; boundary="OuterBoundary";
type=text/xml; start="</maerx-200102/mm7-submit>"
.
.
.
--OuterBoundary
--InnerBoundary
.
--InnerBoundary
.
--InnerBoundary--
--OuterBoundary--

My motivation:

1) It will make axis2 more flexible.
2) Its unlikely that I will be the only person in the world with this
need. I realize that this is a matter of RFC and other standards
interpretation. But the MM7 spec interprets it so and I am sure there
might be more.


I understand that axis2 is a very large and complex project and that
there is a lot more to consider than my two reasons. At the same time
let me express my appreciation and admiration for the Axis team. I know
that I am not capable of what they are doing. So please view this as
constructive.

Regards
Stefan.

PS. Curently using 2.1.1
