Subject Re: Newbie with Axis2

Hi Thilina, thanks for the information.  

I checked with the client, and it seems there might 2-3 concurrent users 
at a time, certainly 12 would be the absolute most if all 12 employees 
decided to hit the web-services at once.

So, I think Axis2, standalone would be the best bet.    I'll certainly 
look at SimpleAxisServer to start ... and then I'll add to it.

Thanks again for the help.
