Axis 1.2 RC2 version includes:
* Performance enhancements over RC1
* Better doc/literal type mapping support
* JAX-RPC compatibility switch for WSDL2Java
* JMX support
* Jetty-based "mini" Axis server
* Bug fixes
We're working hard contributing to this effort and also trying to help get Axis 1.2 to be WS-I compliant with doc/literal support as best we can as well. WS-I would be a very nice to have for Blackstone, I believe.
