Hello all,

We are doing at the moment in our company succesful Web Services projects with JWDSP 1.6. We want to migrate however to JAX-WS when our application server (Oracle) supports fully Java EE 5. (Everyone in the JavaOne 2006 was lyrical about JAX-WS) and our little experiments are also hopeful.

My question is what direction is Axis going? I know very little about Axis. Will it also conform to JAX-WS or is it going an own direction (that is what I heard).

Which will be in the future most likely be the standard: JAX-WS (with the new version of JWSDP) or Axis?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Ronald Heukers

I know very little about JAX-WS, but I doubt that Axis will support it any time soon, if ever. That's for the simple reason that JAX-WS requires Java 5 (e.g., annotations), and I'm fairly certain that's not something the good people at Apache would want to require for Axis in the short term.

I think JAX-WS should certainly be the way to go ... JWSDP 2.0 supports JAX-WS; additionally you can also try WSIT for other new WS-* features along with JAX-WS.
Axis 1.x does not support JAX-WS and I think will not support. Axis2 is currently planning to support JAX-WS, but I am not sure of the current state of development. You can get more info frm axis mailing list
