Web page references SXC, which appears to be unsupported.
---------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CXF-3039
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-3039
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Robert Liguori
            Priority: Minor


Consider the SXC Reference on the CXF JAXB page (http://cxf.apache.org/docs/jaxb.html):

Speedy alternative to the JAXB Reference Implementation
If you are looking for a performance boost inside your application, you may want to examine
SXC, which accelerates the JAXB runtime.

The link to SXC is to here: http://sxc.codehaus.org/.   When going to this URL, you see this,
"There is currently no description associated with this project."  Exploring further, there
are no developers on the SXC team, based on documentation (http://sxc.codehaus.org/team-list.html).
 Also, the last download is from 2007 (http://sxc.codehaus.org/Download).  Most important
though, it did not pass the TCK (http://sxc.codehaus.org/JAXB).

As such, it looks like this project is no longer supported.  Is it safe to reference an abandoned
project?  I would advice removing the link or encouraging the SXC folks to reopen the project
for at least, basic maintenance purposes.

If you refer someone to use SXC, they integrate it, find a problem using it, then can't get
it fixed... that's not cool.

>>> Or... keep the reference, but put in a note on the state of the project...  querying
the SXC project owner (if they are reachable) would be the best path to get a clear picture
of where the project is.

Thanks.
