Subject Re: WSIT from SUN/ORACLE & Microsoft AND Apache/Axis2

Let me add to this that there's a *lot* of recent work going into
improving the Axis2 code base, and it looks like the next major Axis2
release will include greatly improved WS-Security/WS-SecurityPolicy
support - so don't take the rating in my article as necessarily
reflective of the long-term usability of the stacks.
