<p><b>Apache CXF 2.3.0 is released!</b></p>

<p>Apache CXF 2.3.0 is an pretty significant upgrade from the 2.2.x series of releases.
 There are plenty of new features and other improvements including:</p>

	<li>JAX-WS 2.2 Support</li>
	<li>JAX-RS 1.1 Support</li>
	<li>New annotations of java first use cases
		<li>@WSDLDocumentation annotation to add documentation nodes to generated wsdl</li>
		<li>@SchemaValidation annotation to turn on schema validation</li>
		<li>@DataBinding to set the databinding used (if other than JAXB)</li>
		<li>@GZIP to turn on GZIP compression</li>
		<li>@FastInfoset to turn on FastInfoset support</li>
		<li>@Logging to turn on and control various Logging functionality</li>
		<li>@EndpointProperty to configure endpoint properties</li>
		<li>@Policy to associate WS-Policy documents with the service</li>
	<li>SOAP/JMS spec implementation</li>
	<li>SDO databinding</li>
	<li>Schema Validation support for Aegis Databinding if Woodstox 4 is used for the Stax

<h2><a name="Index-Overview"></a>Overview</h2>

<p>Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and develop
services using frontend programming APIs, like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. These services can speak
a variety of protocols such as SOAP, XML/HTTP, RESTful HTTP, or CORBA and work over a variety
of transports such as HTTP, JMS or JBI.</p>

<p>CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following areas:</p>
	<li><b>Web Services Standards Support:</b> CXF supports a variety of web
service standards including SOAP, the WSI Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging,
WS-Security, WS-SecurityPolicy,  WS-SecureConverstation, and WS-Trust (partial).</li>
	<li><b>Frontends:</b> CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming

<p>CXF implements the JAX-WS APIs (TCK compliant). CXF JAX-WS support includes some
extensions to the standard that make it significantly easier to use, compared to the reference
implementation: It will automatically generate code for request and response bean classes,
and does not require a WSDL for simple cases.</p>

<p>It also includes a "simple frontend" which allows creation of clients and endpoints
without annotations. CXF supports both contract first development with WSDL and code first
development starting from Java.   </p>

<p>For REST, CXF also supports a JAX-RS (TCK compliant) frontend.</p>
	<li><b>Ease of use:</b> CXF is designed to be intuitive and easy to use.
There are simple APIs to quickly build code-first services, Maven plug-ins to make tooling
integration easy, JAX-WS API support, Spring 2.x XML support to make configuration a snap,
and much more.</li>
	<li><b>Binary and Legacy Protocol Support:</b>  CXF has been designed to
provide a pluggable architecture that supports not only XML but also non-XML type bindings,
such as JSON and CORBA, in combination with any type of transport.</li>
