I would say that 1) and 2) are basically dead at this point. There's a
fourth possibility that would be to use the local Axis2 transport that lets
you invoke a Java class directly by using the local:/ url scheme.

For the extension activity, I thought we had some documentation but can't
find it, maybe Tammo will be able to help. But we have examples here (check
the readme):


For the Axis2 local transport you should ask the Axis2 folks, there might be
some documentation on there website too.
