So far I have a t.w.p.j.xmlstream.XmlStreamServerFactory object creating
t.w.x.xmlstream.XmlStream protocol instances. The
t.w.p.j.xmlstream.XmlStream objects are being given a
t.w.p.j.xmlstream.ListenAuthenticator object. The factory is being created

t.a.service.Application as its parent service. Everything runs fine and I
