Subject Re: Webservices and jaxrpc done! -- public repost
Date Fri, 01 Jul 2005 23:03:08 GMT
David B., David J., Gianny, Hiram, dims, thanks for the great effort 
here! Although I am not a senior in JAX-RPC matters I have spend the 
last 3 weeks with it and got a glimpse on its complexity. This makes me 
salute you guys even more!

So, well done!
