Hi All,

I got this requirement to migrate my application from Axis to JAX-WS(IBM). I am not sure what does it mean. My application is basically a client application which invokes services deployed somewhere else. I have verified the stub classes and they don't have any axis dependency. So does it mean i dont have to make any chage in my application. Please suggest.

Thanks,
Ajse

Whom do you usually ask when you need to clarify requirements you got?

So let me rephrase my question. I know Axis is a soap engine. Now JAX-WS should also be doing the same thing. But how its different from Axis and is there any benifits if using JAX-WS ?

thanks,

JAX-WS is an API, whereas Axis is an actual implementation, which -amongst other APIs- implements JAX-WS. So contrasting JAX-WS and Axis does not make sense.

If you're looking for other implementations of JAX-WS, check out Metro (which is the JAX-WS RI). All JEE 5 and JEE 6 app servers also come with a JAX-WS implementation.

Thanks Tim, that was useful. So Appserver can create a webservice by their own implimentation of JAX-WS OR use Axis . Is this correct ?
