Topic: Axis2 in Action

New - and more powerful - Web services frameworks are becoming available for Java developers. For this meeting SOA and Web Services consultant Dennis Sosnoski demonstrates working with one of the most important of the new frameworks, Apache Axis2.

He'll show the basics of working with Axis2, using both it's AXIOM XML object model and several variations of XML data binding support, and show the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.

Dennis will also discuss some of the advanced capabilities being built on top of Axis2, including WS-Addressing, WS-Security, WS-ReliableMessaging, and WS-Transactions. He'll finish with a quick comparison of how Axis2 is likely to match up against the other new frameworks such as JAX-WS.
