<title>Welcome to Apache Axis2 version 1.2</title>
<body lang="en">
<h1>Welcome to Apache Axis2 version 1.2</h1>
<pre>Just over 4 months since the original 1.1.1 release, we are very proud to
announce the release of Apache Axis2 version 1.2
Downloads are available at:
Apache Axis2 is a complete re-design and re-write of the widely used
Apache Axis engine and is a more efficient, more scalable, more modular
and more XML-oriented Web services framework. It is carefully designed to
support the easy addition of plug-in "modules" that extend its
functionality for features such as security and reliability.
Modules supporting WS-Security/Secure-Conversation (Apache Rampart),
WS-Trust (Apache Rahas), WS-Reliable Messaging (Apache Sandesha) and
WS-Eventing (Apache Savan) will be available after the Apache Axis2
1.2 release. Please see these projects' own sites for further information.
Major Changes Since 1.1:
- WSDL 2.0 fully support (reading, writing, and codegen)
- POJO annotation (JSR 181)
- JAX-WS integration
- JAX-WS -annotation
- Un-wrapping (Response)
- ADB - support for union and list
- Maven2 support
- JSON support
- Binary serialization (Fast infoste)
- Codegen support for WSDL with Multiple services
- HTTP code generation (both WSDL 1.1 and 2.0)
- Custom deployer support
- Message formatters
- Message Builders
- EJB Provider support
Known Issues and Limitations in 1.2 Release:
- Xml-beans databinding does not support response uwwrapping
- ADB databinding does not support minOccurs and maxOccures attributes in sequence and choice elements
(i.e.,&lt;sequence minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"&gt;&lt;/sequence&gt;)
- Unable to produce original WSDL in the case of WSDL 2.0, therefore the AxisService is serialized to produce ?wsdl2.
Apache Axis2 1.2 is a major new release compared to Axis2 1.1. We are
striving for a simple and happy first time user experience as well as a
satisfying experienced user experience with this release. We welcome any
and all feedback at: (please include "[axis2]" in the subject) (please include "[axis2]" in the subject)
Thank you for your interest in Apache Axis2!
