Stefan Tilkov,

Yet another good discussion of the problems with JAX-RPC-like approaches to Web services. I wonder, though: If you use the classes in javax.xml.soap package — I’m talking about SOAPElement, SOAPBody etc. — what’s the technically correct way to refer to those? JAX-RPC? SAAJ?

I bet whoever came up with the idea to name this spec JAX-RPC deeply regrets this.
