Hi,

Last post in October 06 advices that Axis2 is not yet mature enough to be used. Now there is Axis2 1.1.

I need to decide if I can use Axis2 or stick to Axis 1.x. I have huge preference for performance and security being eCommerce web services. I am also planning to JiBx data binding with Axis2 for performance reasons. My decision is part of huge platform going forward (not a small project)

Any advice please ?

Thanks.

Axis 2 is still young, and does not yet implement a number of features that Axis 1 supports. Unless you have determined that Axis 1 does not meet your performance requirements, I'd say use it. It is secure and performant, and I don't yet see many people jumping ship to Axis 2.

Thanks. I guess should plan Axis 1.x first and then migrated to Axis2 when it is stable. Because Axis2 features like MTOM, WS-addressing, WS-Security is very tempting . I going to need a lot from it in future.

Thanks

Axis 1 does support WS-Security as well with the WSS4J library.

Would it make any sense for you to move to JAX-WS 2.0?
The JAXB 2.0 performance got really good and there's support for many WS-* standards (WS-Security, MTOM, WS-ReliableMessaging, ...) as part of the GlassFish project.

Hello Alexis-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

GlassFish is a full-blown Java EE 5 implementation. It's an open source application server, much like JBoss. It's web services support is done via JAX-WS 2.0. GlassFish v2 is in the works (beta soon). If you're into using rather a supported product, Sun Application Server 9.0 is just a productized version of GlassFish 1 (9.1 will be built on GlassFish v2).
