so far, there's no any J2EE 1.4 application server available, except J2EE SDK 1.4 RI from SUN. correct me if I'm wrong.

apache Axis is not BP 1.0 compliant currently, its new version 1.2 is under development.

JWSDP 1.4 is better, now supports WS-I Basic Profile 1.1 with Attachments 1.0 and XML and Web Services Security, but is it production quality?

anything else, I can choose? I plan to use web service in my new project.

What are your requirements for the new project? Is there a specific application server you'll need to deploy those web services on? In general, Apache Axis should already be good enough for most uses. The only area I find it lacking compared to other products is runtime management tools.

In general, though, why use Axis over the WSDP? When the next version of Axis is available and supports the same specs as the WSDP, why should I choose it over the WSDP?

Thanks!

Generally speaking I would prefer Axis because it's widely used, open source, and because it's small. How many megabytes the JWSDP download is these days?

I've basically got the same question. Our container is JBoss 3.2.4 / Tomcat 5.0. Is JWSDP or Axis better for our environment?... or is there much of a difference? I'm a little new to this area. Any opinions?

I think this is better suited as a new thread.
