Read in The Social Future as seen by six SF Writers:
Ken Wharton: “Individuals often don’t have the time and/or inclination to dig into any particular issue for themselves, meaning that many people will tend to make decisions using the very instincts that are most easily manipulated.
Pat Murphy: “I feel that the more powerful the government is, the less people take the personal responsability. And what we need now is more personal responsability, not less.
Ken Wharton: “[swing-voters] are so overburdened with busy lives that they’re running just as fast they can to stay in the same place“.

Application Scope in Axis

Posted: September 22nd, 2004 | No Comments »

I finally found out to create a singletong shared object in Axis. From the Axis User Guide:

Axis supports scoping service objects (the actual Java objects which implement your methods) three ways. “Request” scope, the default, will create a new object each time a SOAP request comes in for your service. “Application” scope will create a singleton shared object to service all requests. “Session” scope will create a new object for each session-enabled client who accesses your service. To specify the scope option, you add a to your service like this (where “value” is request, session, or application):

&lt;service name="MyService"...&gt;<br />
  &lt;parameter name="scope" value="<em>value</em>"/&gt;<br />
  ...<br />
