You bring up a very good point. Yes, the project as it stands today targets Axis, but it was very easy to integrate JBossWS into the GUI (AxisServer is an MBean).
We do plan on supporting J2EE compatible web services and realize that the dependency of Axis within JBossWS will be going away. To help us down this path, is there any documentation for the roadmap of next generation JBossWS. Is there code available in a public cvs?
If there you have any specific requirements you would like to see, please add them into the SF project at:
The code for the next generation JBossWS is in jboss-head/webservice/src/main/org/jboss/ws
There is a public JIRA project that should more or less show the current status and TODOs
and there are a few roadmap docs in jboss-head/webservice/docs
Soon there will be a JBossWS project home page.
Why don't you contribute that to JBoss CVS, put it as part of the default distrib, etc.? We have started working on a management console and I am sure your tool would fit into it.
Once we understand the direction of JBossWS, then we will be in a much better position to discuss contributing our code to JBoss.
Is the code for the management console you mentioned available somewhere? If so, can you point me to it?
It's the ./console module, if you check-out any of the 3.2.x or 4.0.x or HEAD versions.
