Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2C-721) Requesting step-by-step guides
Date Sat, 01 Dec 2007 14:26:48 GMT


Senaka Fernando commented on AXIS2C-721:

Hi Dushshantha,

What I mean is, since, we want to make Axis2/C user friendly, it is better to have a guide
that gradually builds a service/client from the most basic "hello world", into a bit complex
service. The features should be added one by one, so that the user will not see all at once.
The guide is fine for a person who is familiar with how Axis2/C works. That means a person
who understands how the various components of the engine interacts.

But, our user guide also should cater for the needs of folks who know nothing about the Axis2/C
Framework to write a service/client.

The issue does not lie in the content of our documentation. It is the way it is being presented
I guess.

Just let me point out a fact. For instance, someone who is new to Axis2/C, and to web services
in general, will wonder what we mean by XML payload at the very beginning. To see the payload
you must run the service and the client. Then the user can use a tool like TCPMon and see
the exchanged payloads. We also, can add some screen shots (I don't think it would be a harm).

I believe the user guide is a bit advanced to read and understand for a new user. You need
to approach someone who knows C, but knows nothing about Axis2/C.

I'm not asking someone to write a book, but, I guess we could do some modification to the
existing doc.


P.S. also note that the issue is a wish and not a bug. :-)

and a client, instead of just adding an example in the manual. What I mean is an example which
is gradually built from the most basic step into a really advanced implimentation.
