Subject Could we please take a second and discuss AxisClassloader (3rd attempt)
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2002 21:54:58 GMT
I have attempted to engage the list on this issue on two seperate occasions
and have recived no feedback. The implementation decisions made in the
design of this  class completely breaks axis on ATG dynamo ( a certified
j2ee app server) and possibly other vendor's products.

ps.  sorry if the obtuse numeric email address in some of my prior messages
is  confusing, I am sometimes trapped behind our clients firewalls and it
can do weird things to email addresses.
please respond to the list or the addresses for
personal correspondances.
