I need to develop a webservice that has to process messages containing binary attachments. Not all clients that are going to access this webservice will be written in Java. The webservice will be deployed on Tomcat.

Since the processing of the message can be rather extensive I would like to set up the webservice in an asynchronous matter so that the client doesn't have to wait until the entire process is finished.

What should I use? I've read some articles and tutorials but I didn't get a clear answer about what to use (JAX-RPC, SAAJ, JAXM, ...)

Can anyone give me some guidelines please...

Thx in advance,
Geert

I am using Axis 1.1 where clients (only Java based) send binary data as array of bytes and not attachments to the Web Service. Processing takes place in a synchronous manner...I am trying to find out how to make this asynchronous. Shall let you know if I get something. At the same time, do post a message once you figure a way out of this.
