Java Support For SOAP

Hi!!
We are currently developing a web-based application which uses Java (JSP) clients to communicate with a server using SOAP. We are using DOM API specified by w3c to construct the XML API DOM using custom JSP tags. This DOM is then encapsulated in a SOAP envelope & sent to the server using HTTP. The server response is also in the form of SOAP which is sent over HTTP.
Is there any java API support which will allow us to construct/parse the SOAP envelope/body etc? If it is not available is it going to be supported in the future?
regards,
Bhavin

You can use an early access Version of
JAXM (Java Api for XML-bases RPC).
You can find it at http://java.sun.com/xml

You probably already know about this, but anyway:
The Apache organization has two SOAP in Java projects - SOAP 2.2, which I have been using, is based on code contributed by IBM from their SOAP4J project. Also the "AXIS" project, which is a complete rewrite and is still in alpha. Both projects provide server and client examples. See both at: http://xml.apache.org/

Is there any other vendor for SOAP?
Also, was apache SOAP built with performance in mind?
Is is free for commercial/personal use?

Apache projects are free of use, with the conditions of licensing. You could bundle a Apache project in your products if you keep the license ...
Of course, with Apache projects , you don't have any warranty about fiability or performance.
For my point of view, performance of SOAP engine should not be a problem.because SOAP is not made to be peformant. SOAP messaging should be asynchronous in most of cases.
Kind regards

Well, even if SOAP was not created with performance in mind - there must be some implementation which performs better than the others.

The Apache SOAP project taught them alot. The AXIS project is a complete re-write and should be much faster.
