Subject RE: Does Axis2 provide much better performance than Axis 1.X?
Date Mon, 16 Jun 2008 10:37:21 GMT
Dear Keith,
Thanks for your reply.
We're aware that Axis2 is much faster than Axis1.X and we have conducted
similar tests as described in the articles.
Our question is, is the performance gain in Axis2 is due to the use of
StAX API? In my opinion StAX is not faster than SAX , so how come Axis2
is 5 times faster than Axis1.X? (We assumed the ADB binding part in
Axis1.X performs as well as Axis 2).
Best wishes,
Mai Sun

Here are some results of performance testing We've done. You can go
through these articles to see the reality (Axis2 is FAST).

	Sorry for double posting...... 

	I read somewhere that Axis2 provides better performance
comparing to Axis 1.X due to the introduction of StAX XML parsing. Based
some tests, I can see that for large XML document Axis2 is 5 to 10 times
faster than Axis 1.X. I'm a bit confused here since Axis1.X uses SAX
parser which should be at least as fast as StAX parser, so why the
performance improvement is achieved? 

	Thanks a lot!
