CXF: An Open Source Service Framework</h1>


<table class="sectionMacro" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr>

<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>
<ul>
	<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
models. CXF implements the JAX-WS APIs (TCK compliant). 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.   For REST, CXF
also supports a JAX-RS (TCK compliant) frontend.</li>
	<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>
</ul>
