Subject [axis2] RE: [ANN] Apache Axis2 1.4 Released
Date Tue, 06 May 2008 07:07:02 GMT

Now that 1.4 is released, I still see so many issues logged on JIRA that
have not even been close to resolved.  I logged a blocker in early April
which hasn't even seen the light of day by anybody.  Surely, blockers,
criticals and majors should get immidiate attension?

I still have so many problems in getting Axis2 to work as it should.  I
have been very relunctant to log any issues because I feel that they
don't get dealt with in a speedly manner.  I've browsed through some of
the issues which were logged a good few months or even under a year ago
and still they are not resolved.

Unfortunately, Axis2 is the best that I could find out there, but I just
don't see the level of support I would expect from a project of such
high magnitude.

When deploying a POJO I can't even get Axis2 to auto generate a 100%
compliant WSDL to the POJO.  These are just the basics, I don't even
want to know how people are struggling with the advanced features.

So I ask, can anybody please enlighten me on how to get issues resolved
in a speedly manner or any support on my existing issues?  This mailing
list doesn't seem to be the solution.

Thanks very much

Subject: [ANN] Apache Axis2 1.4 Released

Hash: SHA1


Just over 8 months since the 1.3 release, we are very proud to announce
the release of Apache Axis2 version 1.4.

Downloads are available at:

The Maven2 main repository has the latest jars as well.

Apache Axis2 is a complete re-design and re-write of the widely used
Apache Axis engine and is a more efficient, more scalable, more modular
and more XML-oriented Web services framework. 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 supporting WS-Security/Secure-Conversation (Apache Rampart),
WS-Trust (Apache Rahas), WS-Reliable Messaging (Apache Sandesha) and
WS-Eventing (Apache Savan) will be available soon after the Apache Axis2
1.4 release. Please see these projects' own sites for further

Major Changes Since 1.3:
- - Support for JAXWS and JSR 181 Annotations (See 7 samples in the
binary distribution)
- - Experimental CORBA Support
- - Fixed tons of small and not-so-small bugs (See list in
release-notes.html in the binary distribution)

Known Issues and Limitations in 1.4 Release:
- - Need to use wsimport/wsgen tools in JDK1.6 for JAXWS code
- - Please see JIRA for the current status of bugs

We welcome any and all feedback at:
