+<h3><em>Apache Axis Project in a Nutshell:</em></h3>
 
-<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.</p>
+<p>Apache Axis is an implementation of the SOAP ("Simple Object Access
+Protocol") <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/SOAP">submission</a> to W3C.</p>
+
+<p>Extract from the draft W3C specification:</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+  "SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchanging structured 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 datatypes, and a
+  convention for representing remote procedure calls and
+responses."</blockquote>
+
+<p>This project is a follow-on to the <a
+href="http://ws.apache.org/soap">Apache SOAP project</a>.</p>
+
+<p>Please see the <a href="http://ws.apache.org/axis/ref.html">Axis Reference
+Library</a> for a list of technical resources that should prove useful on
+this project.</p>
+
+<h3><em>Why Apache Axis2:</em></h3>
 
 <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>

+style interface as well as a REST style interface simultaneously.</p>
 
 <p>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
 plug-in "modules" that extend its functionality for features such as security
-and reliability. Modules currently available or under development include:</p>
