    Team,
    I have been reading release notes but I am still confused on the AXL changes between 4.x and 6.x. I understand none of our current scripts that work with AXL on CUCNM 4.13 will work on 6.13, but can any one give me a good clear summary of AXL programming changes between 4.x and 6.x? or point me to a good document?
    Thanks!!!!!

    The major items you will need to consider:

    - As of CM5, the AXL service supports only HTTPS (secure) connections
    - As of CM5, the AXL web service URL changed to /axl/ on port 8443.  E.g.: https://ccmipaddress:8443/axl/
    - There _may_ be changes to the XML schema for requests/responses, depending on which requests you use.  Schema backward compatibility was pretty good however, so this may not effect you unless you are performing fairly specialized operations.
