Subject: WS Implementation Question

Can someone point me to some sort of development environment or libraries
likely to be available in this copntext that are a little higher level --
so, for example, someone else has figured out how to conform to WS-I?  


Hi Roger,

My guess (as a person who tries to understand all this, not as a user) would
be that the developer should look at Apache Axis -
http://ws.apache.org/axis/ <http://ws.apache.org/axis/>   

"Axis is essentially a SOAP engine -- a framework for constructing SOAP
processors such as clients, servers, gateways, etc. The current version of
Axis is written in Java, but a C++ implementation of the client side of Axis
is being developed.

But Axis isn't just a SOAP engine -- it also includes:

*	a simple stand-alone server,
*	a server which plugs into servlet engines such as Tomcat,
*	extensive support for the Web Service Description Language (WSDL),
*	emitter tooling that generates Java classes from WSDL.
*	some sample programs, and
*	a tool for monitoring TCP/IP packets." 

Easier WS-I support seems to be promised in the v 1.2, currently in alpha.
Of course, with the price of gas these days you folks should be able to
afford a commercial WS development environment, eh :-)
