Subject Re: [axis2] [IMPORTANT] JDK 1.4 compatibility - feedback requested
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2007 04:56:22 GMT
In our project, I strongly recommended the use of axis2, fortunately,
this projects is totally new, the only concern I had was considering
the use of WebSphere,  corporative rules demand the use of WAS as our
corporate Application Server, So I was very clear asting for the 6.1
release but people is reluctant with websphere 6.1 because the main
reason is that they don't have enough expertise with the newest
release, if I were locked with websphere 6.0 or minor I might not use
axis2 with java5 cause Webshere 6.0 depends on java 1.4.

In the other hand if Axis2 were rewritten with java5 in mind, this
would be an excellent excuse to adopt the use of WAS 6.1 or change it
for another Application Server ;-)
