<title>Apache Axis2 1.5.3 Release Notes</title>
<body lang="en">
<h1>Apache Axis2 1.5.3 Release Notes</h1>
<h2>About this version</h2>
<p>1.5.3 is a maintenance release that contains the following improvements:</p>
<li>Improved support for SSL when using the servlet transport: Axis2 can now be configured
so that generated WSDLs contain https endpoints (<a href="">AXIS2-4465</a>).</li>
<li>Improved compatibility with Rampart (<a href="">AXIS2-3213</a>
and <a href="">AXIS2-4870</a>) and Sandesha2 (potential HTTP connection pool starvation).</li>
<li>Axiom has been upgraded to 1.2.10. This version contains performance improvements relevant for Rampart.</li>
<li>Application (business) faults are no longer logged at level ERROR (<a href="">AXIS2-4280</a>).</li>
<li>Improved conformance to the SAAJ specifications. The 1.5.3 release contains a set of fixes and improvements for the SAAJ
implementation developed on the trunk and not included in previous releases from the 1.5 branch.</li>
<li>Axis2 now relies exclusively on dependencies available from the Maven central repository, and no other Maven
repositories are required. This in particular fixes a build problem that appeared after the 1.5.2 release.</li>
<li>The Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA plugins are again available for <a href="">download</a> via the Axis2 Web site
(previous 1.5.x versions could only be downloaded from the Maven repository).</li>
<h2>About Axis2</h2>
<p>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.</p>
<p>Modules supporting WS-Security/Secure-Conversation (Apache Rampart),
WS-Trust (Apache Rahas), WS-Reliable Messaging (Apache Sandesha) and
WS-Eventing (Apache Savan) are available via the Apache Web Services
project. Please see the individual subproject sites for further information.</p>
<p>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
