Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.0-incubator released!
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2007 18:02:59 GMT

The Apache Incubator CXF team is proud to announce the availability of
the 2.0 release!
Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and
develop services using frontend programming APIs, like JAX-WS. 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.
CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following
 * Web Services Standards Support: CXF supports a variety of web service
   standards including SOAP, the Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing,
   WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, and WS-Security.

 * Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF
   provides a JAX-WS Compliant frontend. 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.

 * Ease of use: 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 2.0 XML support
   to make configuration a snap, and much more.

 * Binary and Legacy Protocol Support: 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.

 * JAX-WS Compliant frontend - Apache CXF has now passed the standalone
