Well, there you have it then.
But, that does puzzle me. According to what I've read, the distinction
is that, in document mode, the toolkits don't interpret the messages for
you, allowing you to provide your own, hopefully more efficient, parsing
of the document. But it is clear that Axis is converting the message
into java objects for me.
Matthew, do you have an insight into what I'm misunderstanding here?
