Subject Re: axis2 1.3 wsa:To header usage
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2007 21:48:24 GMT
Hello Erwin,

The thing about intermediaries is that they are usually there to hide the 
address of the of the ultimate receiver ( imagine a gateway server or 
proxy for instance ). In that case flowing the address of the ultimate 
receiver across the intermediary would tend to make having the 
intermediary a bit pointless.

Anyone else care to chime in?

If you can't find the time to do it right the first time, where will you 
find the time to do it again?
