Subject RE: See how Axis2 guys suggest with Maven integration :)
Date Wed, 21 May 2008 09:13:04 GMT
Hi Saminda,
 
We'd like to upgrade to Axis 1.4, but we applied some patches to Axis 1.3 and we're not sure
they work with Axis 1.4. Below is a list of changes we made:
 
1. In Axis2 1.3 all properties from sub-class are added before super-class when generating
XML response, this causes incompatibility issue with .NET
2. We need to have control over xsd:dateTime and xsd:date, so we changed the serializer and
deserializer for Java Date and Calendar. It's a pain that we have to patch Axis2 instead of
configuring it as what we did for Axis 1.
 
Regards,
Mai Sun

Subject: Re: How to integrate Axis2 into our project built by Maven


Hi Sun,

At the moment, even with axis2 1.4 release, if user added axis2.jar as a dependency, this
will not download the dependent jars transitively as the pom.xml attached with the axis2.jar
doesn't list them. 

axis2.jar contains the classes from following modules, 

1. kernel
2. addressing
3. codegen
4. adb
5. adb-codegen
6. axis2-java2wsdl
7. xmlbeans
8. clustering

In addition to this there are a lot of module that did not make it to the axis2.jar.

As a production stand point, if the project contains the small units of axis2 dependencies,
it will be very easy to maintain them and patch them if needed. 

Thus, I would recommend the usage of separate jars for your project rather using the axis2.jar
itself. This is because it is maintainable and axis2.jar doesn't contain classes from all
the axis2 modules. 

The newest version of axis2 release is 1.4 and it's better that axis2 1.3 :)

Thank you!

Saminda

	Hi Saminda,
	 
	Thanks for you reply. We're indeed using Maven2 to build WAR. We tried to add the following
dependencies in our pom.xml:
	 
	<dependency>

	

	<groupId>org.apache.axis2</groupId> 

	

	<artifactId>axis2-adb</artifactId> 

	

	<version>1.3</version> 

	

	</dependency> 

	

	<dependency> 

	

	<groupId>org.apache.axis2</groupId> 

	

	<artifactId>axis2-kernel</artifactId> 

	

	<version>1.3</version> 

	

	</dependency> 
	It only downloads the mininal jars for Axis2. What if we want to get a full version of Axis2?
Is it just a matter of adding all sub modules from Axis2?
	 
	Thanks a lot!
	 
	Best wishes,
	Mai Sun

	Hi Sun,
	
	I believe you are using Maven2 to create the WAR distribution. If you are using Maven 1.x,
we would recommend you to switch to Maven2 instead. 
	
	What you need in this case is Maven2 and war plugin. You only need to provide the axis2 dependencies
in you pom.xml and rest will be take care by Manven2 with as transitive dependencies. 
	
	With minimum dependencies of axis2-kernel and axis2-adb you'll be able to build the WAR distribution
as you pleased using Maven2
	
	Thank you!
	
	Saminda

		Hi, 

		We're developing Axis2 based webservice and it works great, but now we plan to build the
WAR by using Maven instead of Ant. In the Axis2 1.3 distribution there are 60 jars, do we
need to declare dependencies of all these jar in our project or is there any easy way to get
around this?

		Any suggestion is appreciated. 

		Best wishes, 
		Mai Sun
