Subject Re: OutofMemoryError thrown from Axis class
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2007 11:49:46 GMT
I had the same problem. I had to return large soap xml (100 MB or more). 
Take a look at this thread:

[AXIOM] How to serialize axiom document without building objects 

I was able to stream the xml from a database as well as stream it as it 
was being created.

Hope this helps.
