Re: [soapbuilders] Re: origin of interoperability problems?
I didn't say that it would be hard. Just not practical. The world is not
pure java... there's still a gazillion
lines of COBOL running (even some that I wrote back in the stone ages:-).
What's a hashmap to COBOL?

is working w/ GMT zones then you only get interop problems in the GMT
2. Axis self tests were failing for me in the GMT0BST tz; nobody else
could see it. wierd.
3. I had an axis1.1 client/server where stuff was coming in a hour out
on 127.0.0.1 based communications.
Now, this is all in the past. Things may be fixed. Using time_t fixes
things for me too mostly, though you have other problems there (leap
seconds, the effect of the moon on the oceans, etc, etc). Try it and
see. But remember to test not just in different systems, but in boxes
(or at least virtual boxes) in different zones and locales.
