Subject Re: Javascript generation

Thanks Dan and Benson ---

even the tools/code for the SOAP client javascript would be
pretty good to use/look at. I know REST requires WSDL 2.0 so
I will need to deal with that on my own - the parsing and
generation that is. I am sure it is not an easy task but
I gotta look into it. I think Axis2 may have some of that
functionality in place anyway.
