Hi,
I am Making a project on spring , any advantages that CXF offers over JWSDP, other than the fact that CXF is better integrated with spring? which one is better scalable, better serves multiple clients or fit for production ?
Why was JWSDP depreciated in favour of glass fish

google search of cxf gives 4,350,000 results and that of JWSDP gives 83,600. . of course that's the criteria to select the framework , what I mean is if something is deprecated why even consider it?

I would ideally go with something that has strong and up to date user community, is widely used and most importantly has active support.
have to consider other frameworks? is it JAX-WS or JAX-RS you are dealing with? if later have to given thought to RESTlet?

Indeed, JWSDP is dead, and should not be used for anything at this point.

While CXF is still under active development, it is not generally the first choice when developing WS, so you may have a harder getting support in forums like this one. Frameworks like Axis2, Metro or Jersey would be more common choices. Why are you considering CXF but not those frameworks?
