.. do you use for production purpose ? Thanks
I have to decide which one is better - some j2ee 1.4 app server or Apache Axis. Thanks.

In our office, we're using Axis, as we move closer to using other Apache project technologies in lieu of some of the pay-ware items we're using. We've found it to be dependable and easy to configure.

Hi Theodore Jonathan Casser,

Can you share some of your experiences with Apache AXIS and the issues you might have faced and all the web services technology stack you have used in addition to Apache AXIS. What level of advanced features you have used in Apache AXIS ? Custom AXIS Handlers, Custom AXIS (De)Serializers etc. etc. ???

Heh. (For starters, please, call me T.J. or Theodore - even my mom and fiancee don't use my full name. )

We actually settled on Axis from the get-go, as we're moving towards using more opensource technology and already have decided to migrate (after our next build) to Tomcat as our app-server. It just seemed a logical choice to us to use Axis as a result.

As for any advanced features, we've yet to utilize any of them. We're really just in a nascent phase with web services in our office, and it'll be some time before we move into custom (de)serializers and the like, as we're still getting the other customers who are requesting such things to the point of accessing the few web services we have and configuring their systems to use them. As I mentioned above... ask me in six months.

Why are people not using J2EE 1.4 web services ? Is it because it is complicated to use and Axis is much simpler?

pradeep- Ofcourse AXIS is more powerful and flexible than JWSDP. Can anyone throw more light on pros and cons of each AXIS and JWSDP ?
