  -These questions seem to be frequently asked.
  -<p>
  -<i>What is Axis? What is its relationship to Apache SOAP?</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -Axis is essentially Apache SOAP 3.0.  It is a from-scratch rewrite, designed
  -around a streaming model (using SAX internally rather than DOM).  The intention
  -is to create a more modular, more flexible, and higher-performing SOAP
  -implementation (relative to Apache SOAP 2.0).
  -</blockquote>
  -<i>Why call it "Axis"?</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -The name "Axis" was chosen because, when the project started, the XML Protocol
  -working group had not chosen a name for its protocol.
  -The intent was for Axis to support SOAP 1+, XML-RPC, and XMLP (whatever it wound
  -up being called), so calling it "Apache SOAP 3.0" would have missed the mark. 
  -Recently, the XML Protocol working group decided to retain the
  -SOAP name, so perhaps it would have been better to keep Axis as part of the Apache
  -SOAP project.  C'est la vie.
  -<p>
  -(According to the README, AXIS stands for "Apache eXtensible Interaction System",
  -which could mean almost anything.)
  -</blockquote>
  -<i>Is Axis close to a release of some kind?</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -Yes, depending on who you ask :-)  The current code base already supports most
  -of the standard interop tests.  There are a fairly large number of features
  -remaining to be implemented (including SOAP attachments support, WSDL, SMTP,
  -etc.), but work is underway on those, and it is likely there will be an alpha
  -release (missing many of those features) in the very near future (as of
  -13 July 2001).
  -</blockquote>
  -<i>What is Axis's status overall?</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -To keep track of Axis's progress:
  -<li><a href="http://www.apache.org/~rubys/ApacheClientInterop.html">Sam Ruby's
Axis/SOAP interop page</a></li>
  -<li><a href="http://xml.apache.org/websrc/cvsweb.cgi/~checkout~/xml-axis/java/docs/requirements.html?content-type=text/html">The
requirements &amp; status page.</a></li>
  -</blockquote>
  -<i>Why do some classes fail to load under Tomcat?</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -Tomcat will not load classes with package names starting "java." or "javax." from the WEB-INF
  -directory. jars containing such classes need to be installed in $TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib
  -rather than in WEB-INF/lib. Currently (21 Feb. 2002), axis.jar is such a jar.
  -</blockquote>
  -<i>What if I can't find the answer to my question here?</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -Try the <a href="mail.html" target="body">mailing lists</a>.
  -</blockquote>
  -<i>How do report bugs</i>
  -<blockquote>
  -See <a href="bugs.html" target="body">bugs</a>.
