Hi Alek,

Also send to soapbuilders .. lots of SOAPsters hang out there and WSIF
is also in the SOAP space because it provides an alternate DII.

> Apache WSIF 2.0 Released
> ------------------------
> The Apache WSIF (Web Services Invocation Framework) team is proud to

> the first open release of Apache WSIF.
> WSIF (the "Web Services Invocation Framework") is a WSDL-based API for
> invoking WSDL-described services. WSIF developers interact with Web
> at the abstract level through their WSDL descriptions. This is done
> independently of APIs specific to a message format or network protocol
> (eg SOAP APIs).
> With WSIF, developers work with the same programming model regardless of
> how the Web service is implemented and accessed. WSIF achieves this with a
> pluggable architecture with protocol-specific "providers" to handle
> invocations according to a specific protocol.
> Apache WSIF 2.0 comes bundled with providers for SOAP (using Apache SOAP
> Axis), local java classes, EJBs, JMS services and applications accessible
> via Java Connectors. WSIF also describes the specific WSDL extensions used
> to make these kinds of applications accessible as WSDL-described services.
> WSIF allows stubless or completely dynamic invocation of a Web service,
> based upon examination of the meta-data about the service at runtime. It
> also allows updated implementations of a binding to be plugged into WSIF
> runtime, and it allows the calling service to defer choosing a binding
> runtime.
> This is the first release of WSIF since it was contributed to the ASF, and
> is named 2.0 to avoid confusion with previous non-Apache licensed 1.x
> versions.
> For more information about Apache WSIF 2.0, please go to
> Thanks to all the committers, contributors and usersfor their efforts in
> helping get our first release out.
