Create Quality Web Services with New Book on Quicktstart Apache Axis2

Friday, May 23, 2008 | News | Java

Quickstart Apache Axis2 is a new book from Packt, which is a complete guide to creating secure, reliable and easy-to-use web services using Apache Axis2. Written by Deepal Jayasinghe, this book is a step by step practical guide for developing web services using Apache Axis2.

Axis2 is an enterprise-ready web service engine that is very user friendly and provides web service interactions with a dynamic and flexible execution framework.

Apache Axis2 is a core engine for web services with two implementations: Apache Axis2/Java and Apache Axis2/C. It is a complete redesign and rewrite of the widely used Apache Axis SOAP stack that builds on the lessons learned from the Apache Axis implementation of the SOAP submission to W3C. Apache Axis2 not only supports SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2, but also has integrated support for the widely popular REST-style of web services. The same business logic implementation can offer both a WS-* style interface and a REST/POX style interface simultaneously.

Apache Axis2 is more efficient, more modular, more scalable, and more XML-oriented than the older version. It is carefully designed to support the easy addition of plug-in modules that extend its functionality for features such as security and reliability. Apache Axis2 is built on Apache AXIOM, a new high performance, pull-based XML object model.

This book is for Java developers who are interested in building web services using Apache Axis2. The book presumes that users are familiar with web standards like SOAP, WSDL and XML parsing. This book will take them through the basics of web services and Axis2 to the details of Axis2’s architecture.
