Hello All,

I came across a post which talks about JAXM and in that it is mentioned that SOAP/JMS is an option instead of SOAP/HTTP and JAXM is the new technology in that space. But what is JAXM (I knew that it is messaging technology) but how is this different from JMS and in what way it is related to web services. Any examples pointed would be helpful.

Hi!
JAXM seems like a predecessor to JAX-WS. From what I see on the web, it is even earlier than JAX-RPC (or perhaps from about the same time).
Here is an article from 2001 that, among other things, speak about JAXM: http://www.theserverside.com/news/1365386/Developers-Guide-to-Building-XML-based-Web-Services-with-the-Java-2-Platform-Enterprise-Edition-J
Best wishes!

Kumar,

XML & Web services: JAXM vs JAX-RPC speaks about this subject. It says -

JAXM is NOT part of the J2EE 1.4 specification.

J2EE 1.4. includes these web service API's: JAXR, JAX-RPC, and SAAJ

According to the SAAJ 1.2 specification:

{{

The SAAJ Specification, version 1.1 was a maintenance release of the Java API for
XML Messaging (JAXM) 1.0 specification. JAXM 1.0 was the final deliverable of
JSR067 Expert Group (EG). The proposed changes specified in the JSR067 changelog
and accepted on 15 April 2002, have been incorporated into this document.
This document is the SAAJ Specification, version 1.2. It is a maintenance release of
the SOAP with Attachements API for Java™ specification. The proposed changes
specified in the second JSR067 changelog and accepted on 23 April 2003, have been
incorporated into this document.

}}


In addition, JAX-RPC and JAXM is a good reference.

Regards,
Dan
