Hi
I would be very much intrested in knowing the differences between Apache - Axis and the Sun Java SAAJ
for example
Are they complementary api's ie one can be used for the other. If so any specific reason why sun is not "borrowing" the implementation from apache.
Thanks
Rahul

Hi Rajul,
SAAJ is a standard for transmitting attachments into SOAP envelopes while many of the Axis' features are proprietary. I have to admit though that I don't even know which API Axis provides for SOAP attachments.

SAAJ?

Originally posted by Axis happines page on my 127.0.0.1

Found SAAJ API (javax.xml.soap.SOAPMessage) at D:\Tomcat41\webapps\axis\WEB-INF\lib\saaj.jar


As Lasse said. Both are different things. I would say Axis is a SOAP implementation and SAAJ is a SOAP spec (ruling transmitting of attachments).

Hi Axel

SAAJ is a SOAP spec (ruling transmitting of attachments).


I meant SAAJ 1.1 that is developed by Sun and provided along with the Web Services Developer pack.
Check this out Developer Pack which contains SOAP with Attachments API for Java (SAAJ) v1.2 EA

Hi - I think it is proper to say:
-SAAJ is a specification (set of interfaces).
-Apache provides an implementation in Axis.
-Sun provides another implementation delivered with the WSDP.

Any reasons why apache too must provide a implementation to SOAP. Any differences between the two implementations
Thanks
