  Axis FAQ
  These questions seem to be frequently asked.
  <i>What is Axis? What is its relationship to Apache SOAP?</i>
  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).
  <i>Why call it "Axis"?</i>
  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.
  <i>Is Axis close to a release of some kind?</i>
  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).
  <i>What is Axis's status overall?</i>
  To keep track of Axis's progress:

Axis/SOAP interop page</a></li>
