Subject Axis2/Rampart WS-Security performance
Date Sat, 30 Jan 2010 23:12:53 GMT
Following up on some earlier discussions of Axis2/Rampart WS-Security 
performance, devWorks has now published my latest article in the Java 
Web Services series, comparing Axis2/Rampart with Metro WS-Security 
performance: The 
results are very bad for Axis2/Rampart, with Metro more than twice as 
fast overall in the WS-Security tests.

As mentioned in the article, some timing tests with 
org.apache.rampart.TIME logging seemed to indicate that a lot of the 
overhead is actually occurring outside the Rampart handler. I suspect 
that Axis2 has fallen into the same performance pit as Axis in doing 
conversions to and from different forms of the message.

If anyone is interested in investigating further, the full source code 
for the performance comparison is available as a download from the article.
