Subject Re: ws-commons / WSDL4J DIME extensions

This would be a great start. I am particularly interested in refactoring 
WSDL2Java and Java2WSDL to have a more pluggable architecture so we can 
share common code more easily.

In the wsdl2java case we can refactor so that the common code works off 
abstract wsdl only and allows you to plug in binding-specific code 
generators. Axis can plug in code (currently mixed in with other wsdl2java 
code) to operate on the SOAP binding and generate Axis stubs.

In the java2wsdl case we can do it similarly - have the common code 
operate on java classes/interfaces to generate abstract WSDL, then plug in 
code to add bindings to this. The SOAP binding plug in can also be part of 
the common project since it's a standard binding, but this architecture 
will let WSIF plug in code to generate java, EJB, JMS, J2C bindings which 
are defined as a part of WSIF.

I got private emails saying that we could start something and that the 
WSDL4J guys would pick them
up eventually. 

FYI, I have already enhanced WSDL2Java with the minimum stuff needed for 
us using the Unknown
Extensibility mechanism.

Let us do this...
1. start a proposal directory under your CVS module.
2. start coding there with a build.xml and generating a jar file that can 
be dropped into both
axis and wsif.
3. Get the code to some good shape 
4. Then use this code to start a ws-commons

What do you guys think with this approach? (don't want this code to be 
like WSIL - with no
