-<h1>Axis2 Release Notes</h1>
-
-<h3>May 4th, 2006</h3>
-
-<p>After nearly two years of development, we are very proud to announce the
-release of Apache Axis2 1.0!</p>
-
-<p><a href="http://ws.apache.org/axis2">http://ws.apache.org/axis2</a></p>
-
-<p>Apache Axis2 is a complete re-design and re-write of the widely used
-Apache Axis SOAP stack to build on the lessons learnt from Apache Axis.
-Apache Axis2 is more efficient, more modular and more XML-oriented than the
-older version. It is carefully designed to support the easy addition of
-plugin "modules" that extend its functionality for features such as security
-and reliability. A module supporting WS-Security (Apache Rampart) is
-available immediately and a module supporting WS-Reliable Messaging (Apache
-Sandesha) will be available within days.</p>
-
-<p>Apache Axis2 not only supports SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2, but it 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 as
-well as a REST style interface simultaneously.</p>
-
-<p>Apache Axis2 is built on Apache Axiom, a new high performant, pull-based
-XML object model that was released two days ago.</p>
-

-<h1>Welcome to Apache Axis2</h1>
-
-<p>Apache Axis2 is an implementation of the <a
-href="http://www.w3.org/TR/soap/">Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
-Recommendation</a> from the <a href="http://www.w3.org">W3C</a>.  Axis2 can
-be used to provide and consume Web Services.</p>
-
-<p>From the <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/soap/">W3C recommendation</a>:</p>
-
-<div style="padding-left: 20px; padding-top: 5px; font-style:italic;">
-"SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchange of information in a
-decentralized, distributed environment. It is an XML based protocol that
-consists of three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing
-what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for
-expressing instances of application-defined data types, and a convention for
-representing remote procedure calls and responses."</div>
-
-<p>Apache Axis2 is an effort to re-implement both Axis/Java and Axis/C++ on a
-new architecture. Building upon the "handler chain" model developed in Axis1,
-Axis2 introduces a more flexible pipeline architecture which leads itself to
-greater modularity and extensibility. This extensibility will allow Axis2 to
-act as a foundation for a growing constellation of associated Web Services
-protocols including:</p>

-<ol type="1">
-  <li>JAX-RPC 1.1 and/or JAX-WS compliance</li>
-  <li>SOAP Encoding</li>
-  <li>Binary serialization and de-serialization support</li>

-    such as JSR 109 support</li>
-  <li>HTTP transport based on URL.openConnection (to be usable in Java Web
-    Start clients, because of authenticating proxies)</li>

-<h2>Axis2 Background and Motivation</h2>
-
-<p>Axis1 was built under the assumption that other protocols such as
-WS-ReliableMessaging would be integrated into Axis1's handler chain.  Axis1
-had the concept of a <a
-href="http://ws.apache.org/axis/java/apiDocs/org/apache/axis/MessageContext.html">MessageContext</a>
-and a chain of transport, service, and global message handlers, but Axis1
-lacked a clear extension architecture to enable clean composition of such
-layers. One of the key motivations for Axis2 is to provide a clean and simple
-environment for implementations of associated WS standards such as <a
-href="http://ws.apache.org/sandesha/">Apache Sandesha</a> and <a
-href="http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/">Apache WSS4J</a>. Implementations of
-associated standards should be able to easily interface with the base SOAP
-Message handling system. In summary, Axis2 has a more modular and flexible
-message handling pipeline. It focuses on the details of message handling and
-provides clear hooks for implementations of associated Web Services standards
-and protocols. This evolution will allow Axis to be a foundational technology
-for next generation Web Services.</p>
-
-<p>Axis2 introduces a representation for SOAP messages called <b>AXIOM (AXIs
-Object Model)</b>. AXIOM consists of two parts: a complete XML Infoset
-representation and a SOAP Infoset representation. The XML Infoset
-representation provides a JDOM-esque API built on top a deferred model via a
-StAX-based (Streaming API for XML) pull parsing API. A key feature of AXIOM
-is that it allows one to stop building the XML tree and just access the pull
-stream directly, enabling both maximum flexibility and maximum performance.
-This approach allows Axis2 to support multiple levels of abstraction for
-consuming and offering Web services using plain AXIOM, or using generated
-code and statically data-bound data types and so on. Developers with
-demanding performance requirements will be able to use AXIOM to create highly
-scalable Web Services.</p>
-
-<p>A third shift in Axis2 is the de-emphasis of RPC-oriented Web Services and
-a shift towards more document-oriented message style asynchronous service
-interactions. With Axis2 clients can interact with servers in a number of
-ways, and the client API provides both a blocking and non-blocking API. At
-the time of Axis1's design, RPC-style, synchronous, request-response
-interactions were the order of the day for Web services. Today service
-interactions are much more message-oriented and exploit many different
-message exchange patterns. The Axis2 engine architecture is careful not to
-build in any assumptions of request-response patterns to ensure that it can
-be used easily to support arbitrary message exchange patterns. Don't worry,
-you'll still be able to use Axis2 like you used Axis1. One just have a richer
-set of options for client-server interaction.</p>

+<h1>Welcome to Apache Axis2</h1>
+
+<p>Apache Axis2 is an implementation of the <a
+href="http://www.w3.org/TR/soap/">Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
+Recommendation</a> from the <a href="http://www.w3.org">W3C</a>.  Axis2 can
+be used to provide and consume Web Services.</p>
+
+<p>From the <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/soap/">W3C recommendation</a>:</p>
+
+<div style="padding-left: 20px; padding-top: 5px; font-style:italic;">
+"SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchange of information in a
+decentralized, distributed environment. It is an XML based protocol that
+consists of three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing
+what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for
+expressing instances of application-defined data types, and a convention for
+representing remote procedure calls and responses."</div>
+
+<p>Apache Axis2 is an effort to re-implement both Axis/Java and Axis/C++ on a
+new architecture. Building upon the "handler chain" model developed in Axis1,
+Axis2 introduces a more flexible pipeline architecture which leads itself to
+greater modularity and extensibility. This extensibility will allow Axis2 to
+act as a foundation for a growing constellation of associated Web Services
+protocols including:</p>

+<h3>Extension Modules</h3>
+<ul>
+  <li>Apache Rampart: Supporting WS-Security (and soon WS-Policy)</li>
+  <li>Apache Sandesha2: Supporting WS-Reliable Messaging</li>
+</ul>
+(Apache Axis2 comes built in with a module that supports WS-Addressing.)
+
+<h2>Known Issues and Limitations</h2>
+<ul>
+  <li>Recursive schemas (A includes B which includes A) may cause
+  problems</li>
+  <li>JaxMe data binding support is experimental</li>
+  <li>Axis2-595: Hot redployment in Apache Tomcat has problems</li>
+  <li>Axis2-666: AddressingSubmissionInHandler does not deserialize EPR
+    extensibility attributes and elements</li>
+  <li>AXIS2-667: Operation dispatch based on message body has a known
+  issue</li>
+  <li>Axis Data Binding (ADB) does not cover all of XML Schema; its an 80-20
+    design point. Unsupported XML Schema features include: 
+    <ol>
+      <li>Simple content extension and restriction</li>
+      <li>Complex content restriction</li>
+      
+    </ol>
+

+  <li>No support yet for unwrapping of doc/lit WSDL files (in stub
+  generation)</li>
+  <li>No support yet for rpc/encoded style WSDL documents (in stub
+  generation)</li>
+</ul>
+<h2>Axis2 Background and Motivation</h2>
+
+<p>Axis1 was built under the assumption that other protocols such as
+WS-ReliableMessaging would be integrated into Axis1's handler chain.  Axis1
+had the concept of a <a
+href="http://ws.apache.org/axis/java/apiDocs/org/apache/axis/MessageContext.html">MessageContext</a>
+and a chain of transport, service, and global message handlers, but Axis1
+lacked a clear extension architecture to enable clean composition of such
+layers. One of the key motivations for Axis2 is to provide a clean and simple
+environment for implementations of associated WS standards such as <a
+href="http://ws.apache.org/sandesha/">Apache Sandesha</a> and <a
+href="http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/">Apache WSS4J</a>. Implementations of
+associated standards should be able to easily interface with the base SOAP
+Message handling system. In summary, Axis2 has a more modular and flexible
+message handling pipeline. It focuses on the details of message handling and
+provides clear hooks for implementations of associated Web Services standards
+and protocols. This evolution will allow Axis to be a foundational technology
+for next generation Web Services.</p>
+
+<p>Axis2 introduces a representation for SOAP messages called <b>AXIOM (AXIs
+Object Model)</b>. AXIOM consists of two parts: a complete XML Infoset
+representation and a SOAP Infoset representation. The XML Infoset
+representation provides a JDOM-esque API built on top a deferred model via a
+StAX-based (Streaming API for XML) pull parsing API. A key feature of AXIOM
+is that it allows one to stop building the XML tree and just access the pull
+stream directly, enabling both maximum flexibility and maximum performance.
+This approach allows Axis2 to support multiple levels of abstraction for
+consuming and offering Web services using plain AXIOM, or using generated
+code and statically data-bound data types and so on. Developers with
+demanding performance requirements will be able to use AXIOM to create highly
+scalable Web Services.</p>
+
+<p>A third shift in Axis2 is the de-emphasis of RPC-oriented Web Services and
+a shift towards more document-oriented message style asynchronous service
+interactions. With Axis2 clients can interact with servers in a number of
+ways, and the client API provides both a blocking and non-blocking API. At
+the time of Axis1's design, RPC-style, synchronous, request-response
+interactions were the order of the day for Web services. Today service
+interactions are much more message-oriented and exploit many different
+message exchange patterns. The Axis2 engine architecture is careful not to
+build in any assumptions of request-response patterns to ensure that it can
+be used easily to support arbitrary message exchange patterns. Don't worry,
+you'll still be able to use Axis2 like you used Axis1. One just have a richer
+set of options for client-server interaction.</p>
