Subject Re: Request of Linking with a codeFest
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 09:31:05 GMT
HI Kanchana,

I guess this is not the time for an extreme newbie, but yes if he/she has a
basic understanding on Axis2 and the code, giving few guidance to those
should be doable. Our target is a bit hard to achieve one so we better not
get much extreme newbies this time. :-(

Thanks,
Ruwan
