I've got an J2EE application running in Jboss 3.2.4, which implements the Servlet 2.4, JSP 2.0, and EJB 2.0 standards. Can I use the latest Axis or JWSDP releases in this environment? If so, which would be a better choice for my environment?

AFAIK you can use AXIS with any servlet container. AXIS is purely a web application which you wrap up in your web service archive to do all the SOAP message interception stuff.

JWSDP - this is purely a collection of libraries, which Sun have provided to do web service stuff like publishing to a UDDI registry.

SUN's WSDP 1.4 is tested and supported on the Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8, the Sun Java System Web Server 6.1, and Tomcat 5.0.

If you have a mission critical app, you'd probably be better off with the devil you know.

But, in Sun's favor, the WSDP 1.4 is a pretty good toolkit which supports WS-I Basic Profile 1.1 with Attachments Profile 1.0 and XML and Web Services Security.

be-aware that sun's app server is not for commercial use (see the licence), I would reckon that everyone uses AXIS, as this is the same SOAP engine inside IBM's WebSphere.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
