Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.2 released
Date Thu, 19 Mar 2009 17:00:54 GMT

The Apache CXF team is proud to announce the availability of the 2.2 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 WSI Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, WS-
Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, and WS-Security. 

* REST based service creation based on JAX-RS standard API's.
* Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF   
provides a JAX-WS 2.1 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.

What's new in CXF 2.2:
 * WS-SecurityPolicy support
 * WS-SecureConversation
 * Some WS-Trust support (client side)
 * JAX-RS 1.0 (not TCK compliant yet)
 * MANY MANY bugfixes, performance enhancements, etc...  Too numerous to list 

As always, we welcome feedback on our mailing lists:
