Hi, Am I right in thinking that axis, glue and jax-rpc(part of sun web service dev kit?) are just three different SOAP implementaions that are written in Java? From what I have seen, GLUE is the fastest way for a beginner to get a web service up and running. What are the advantages of the other two? Cheers, Joe
Actually, JAX-RPC is an API, not a product. The benefit of Apache Axis over WebMethods GLUE is that Axis has a lot bigger user base and, thus, better community support. Axis is probably also integrated into many more products than GLUE is.
