Geronimo 2.0 Web Services support

This table below is used to track the progress of the Apache Geronimo Java EE 5.0 Web Services implementation.  This table is needed in addition to the Java EE 5 Report Card as this table shows the current status of the detailed functions. The function items are obtained from JSR 109 only based on the assumption that we only need to implement JSR 109 to integrate either Axis2 or CXF into Geronimo.

JAX-RPC

Web Service Support Function Items Axis2 CXF
POJO support    
JAX-RPC 1.1 based web service applications should continue to work (handled by Axis1)
     
EJB Support    
JAX-RPC 1.1 based web service applications should continue to work (handled by Axis1)    

CXF Notes
  • CXF1: Handler chain filtering ignores namespaces for service or port name.
  • CXF2: The file specified by the @HandlerChain annotation can only be read from within a classloader of the module.
  • CXF3: Automatic @WebServiceRef/@WebServiceRefs dependency injection is not yet supported in Geronimo but user can specify the Web Service reference via service-ref element in the deployment descriptor.
