I have inherited a Custom Building Block that uses Axis2 1.6.2 (Java) and know that it needs to be migrated to the current version Axis2 1.7.5
I am new to Axis2, but see the changes listed in the Axis2 Release Notes Apache Axis2 – Apache Axis2/Java - Next Generation Web Services as well as the related Axiom Release Notes Axiom – Release notes
If you have done similar migration work, please advise on aspects of overall approach
For migration from AXIOM 1.2.13 to AXIOM 1.2.20: (Thanks to Andreas Veithen on Axis2 Users List Serv)
OMAbstractFactory.getSOAP11Factory() to get the SOAPFactory instance, then rewrite your code to use the factory methods until there are no more references to internal implementation classes. The resulting code will then work with both Axiom versions.
