-
-<p>Welcome to Axis2, the next generation of Apache Axis!!! This User's Guide
-will help you to understand what Axis2 has to offer and how to get started
-with it. We hope you will benefit from the power of Axis2.</p>
-

-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in">This User's Guide is written based on
-    Axis2 standard binary distribution. (The standard binary distribution can
-    be created from the source distribution using the maven goal <code>$maven
-    dist-std-bin</code>). Please refer the <a
-    href="installationguide.html#Download_Axis2">installation guide</a> for further

-    Guide</a> before you go any further in this guide.</p>

-
-<h3><a name="What_is_Axis2_">What is Axis2?</a></h3>
-
-<p>Axis2 is the next generation of Apache Axis. In late August 2004, during
-the Axis2 Summit held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, a new architecture for Axis was
-introduced which was much more flexible, efficient and configurable. Although
-the architecture is new, some of the well established concepts from Axis 1.x
-like handlers are preserved in Axis2. Axis2 comes with many new features,
-enhancements and industry specification implementations.</p>
-
-<p>After months of continued discussion and coding in this direction, Axis2
-now delivers the following key features:</p>
-<ul>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Speed</strong> - Axis2
uses its
-    own object model and StAX (Streaming API for XML) parsing to achieve
-    significantly greater speed than earlier versions of Apache Axis.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Low memory foot print</strong>-
-    Axis2 was designed ground-up keeping low memory foot print in mind.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>AXIOM</strong> - Axis2
comes with
-    its own light-weight object model, AXIOM, for message processing which is
-    extensible, high performance and developer convenient</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong><a name="Hot_Deployment">Hot
-    Deployment</a></strong> - Axis2 is equipped with the capability of
-    deploying web service &amp; handlers while system is up and running. In
-    other words, new services can be added to the system without having to
-    shut down server.Drop the required Web service archive into the services
-    directory in the repository and deployment model will automatically
-    deploy the service and make it available for use.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Asynchronous Web
-    Services</strong> - Axis2 now supports asynchronous web services &amp;
-    asynchronous web services invocation using non-blocking clients and
-    transports .</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>MEP Support</strong>
- Axis2 now
-    comes handy with the flexibility to support Message Exchange Patterns
-    (MEPs) with in-built support for basic MEPs defined in WSDL 2.0.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Flexibility</strong>
- The Axis2
-    architecture gives the developer complete freedom to insert extensions
-    into the engine for custom header processing, system management, or
-    <em>anything else you can imagine</em>.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Stability</strong> -
Axis2
-    defines a set of published interfaces which change relatively slowly
-    compared to the rest of Axis.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Component-oriented
-    Deployment</strong> - You can easily define reusable networks of Handlers
-    to implement common patterns of processing for your applications, or to
-    distribute to partners.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Transport Framework</strong>
- We
-    have a clean and simple abstraction for integrating and using Transports
-    (i.e., senders and listeners for SOAP over various protocols such as
-    SMTP, FTP, message-oriented middleware, etc), and the core of the engine
-    is completely transport-independent.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>WSDL support</strong>
- Axis2
-    supports the <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl" target="_blank">Web Service Description
-    Language</a>, version 1.1 and 2.0, which allows you to easily build stubs
-    to access remote services, and also to automatically export
-    machine-readable descriptions of your deployed services from Axis2.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Add-ons</strong> Several
web
-    services specifications have been incorporated including <a
-    href="http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/" target="_blank">WSS4J</a> for security, <a
-    href="http://ws.apache.org/sandesha/" target="_blank">Sandesha</a> for reliable
-    messaging, <a href="http://ws.apache.org/kandula/" target="_blank">Kandula</a>
which is
-    an encapsulation of WS-Coordination, WS-AtomicTransaction and
-    WS-BusinessActivity.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Composition and
-    Extensibility</strong> - modules and phases improve support for
-    composability and extensibility. Modules supports composability and is
-    able to add support for new WS-* specifications in a simple and clean
-    manner. They are however not <a href="#Hot_Deployment">hot deployable</a>
-    as they change the overall behavior of the system.</p>
-  </li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>We hope you enjoy using Axis2. Please note that this is an open-source
-effort. If you feel the code could use some new features or fixes, please get
-involved and lend us a hand! The Axis developer community welcomes your
-participation.</p>
-
-<p>Let us know what you think!</p>
-
-<p>Please send your feedback on Axis2 to "<a
-href="mailto:axis-user@ws.apache.org">axis-user@ws.apache.org</a>" and make
-sure to prefix the subject of the mail with [Axis2].</p>

+<h2><a name="Introduction">Introduction</a></h2>
+
+<p>Welcome to Axis2, the next generation of Apache Axis!!! This User's Guide
+will help you to understand what Axis2 has to offer and how to get started
+with it. We hope you will benefit from the power of Axis2.</p>
+
+<h3><a name="Attention">Attention</a></h3>
+<ul>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in">This User's Guide is written based on
+    Axis2 standard binary distribution. (The standard binary distribution can
+    be created from the source distribution using the maven goal <code>$maven
+    dist-std-bin</code>). Please refer the <a
+    href="installationguide.html#Download_Axis2">installation guide</a> for further
+    information on the downloadables available in this release.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p>If you are new to Axis, it's highly recommended that you read <a
+    href="http://ws.apache.org/axis/java/user-guide.html" target="_blank">Axis 1.x User's
+    Guide</a> before you go any further in this guide.</p>

+<h3><a name="What_is_Axis2_">What is Axis2?</a></h3>
+
+<p>Axis2 is the next generation of Apache Axis. In late August 2004, during
+the Axis2 Summit held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, a new architecture for Axis was
+introduced which was much more flexible, efficient and configurable. Although
+the architecture is new, some of the well established concepts from Axis 1.x
+like handlers are preserved in Axis2. Axis2 comes with many new features,
+enhancements and industry specification implementations.</p>
+
+<p>After months of continued discussion and coding in this direction, Axis2
+now delivers the following key features:</p>
+<ul>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Speed</strong> - Axis2
uses its
+    own object model and StAX (Streaming API for XML) parsing to achieve
+    significantly greater speed than earlier versions of Apache Axis.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Low memory foot print</strong>-
+    Axis2 was designed ground-up keeping low memory foot print in mind.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>AXIOM</strong> - Axis2
comes with
+    its own light-weight object model, AXIOM, for message processing which is
+    extensible, high performance and developer convenient</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong><a name="Hot_Deployment">Hot
+    Deployment</a></strong> - Axis2 is equipped with the capability of
+    deploying web service &amp; handlers while system is up and running. In
+    other words, new services can be added to the system without having to
+    shut down server.Drop the required Web service archive into the services
+    directory in the repository and deployment model will automatically
+    deploy the service and make it available for use.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Asynchronous Web
+    Services</strong> - Axis2 now supports asynchronous web services &amp;
+    asynchronous web services invocation using non-blocking clients and
+    transports .</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>MEP Support</strong>
- Axis2 now
+    comes handy with the flexibility to support Message Exchange Patterns
+    (MEPs) with in-built support for basic MEPs defined in WSDL 2.0.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Flexibility</strong>
- The Axis2
+    architecture gives the developer complete freedom to insert extensions
+    into the engine for custom header processing, system management, or
+    <em>anything else you can imagine</em>.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Stability</strong> -
Axis2
+    defines a set of published interfaces which change relatively slowly
+    compared to the rest of Axis.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Component-oriented
+    Deployment</strong> - You can easily define reusable networks of Handlers
+    to implement common patterns of processing for your applications, or to
+    distribute to partners.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Transport Framework</strong>
- We
+    have a clean and simple abstraction for integrating and using Transports
+    (i.e., senders and listeners for SOAP over various protocols such as
+    SMTP, FTP, message-oriented middleware, etc), and the core of the engine
+    is completely transport-independent.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>WSDL support</strong>
- Axis2
+    supports the <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl" target="_blank">Web Service Description
+    Language</a>, version 1.1 and 2.0, which allows you to easily build stubs
+    to access remote services, and also to automatically export
+    machine-readable descriptions of your deployed services from Axis2.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Add-ons</strong> Several
web
+    services specifications have been incorporated including <a
+    href="http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/" target="_blank">WSS4J</a> for security, <a
+    href="http://ws.apache.org/sandesha/" target="_blank">Sandesha</a> for reliable
+    messaging, <a href="http://ws.apache.org/kandula/" target="_blank">Kandula</a>
which is
+    an encapsulation of WS-Coordination, WS-AtomicTransaction and
+    WS-BusinessActivity.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Composition and
+    Extensibility</strong> - modules and phases improve support for
+    composability and extensibility. Modules supports composability and is
+    able to add support for new WS-* specifications in a simple and clean
+    manner. They are however not <a href="#Hot_Deployment">hot deployable</a>
+    as they change the overall behavior of the system.</p>
+  </li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>We hope you enjoy using Axis2. Please note that this is an open-source
+effort. If you feel the code could use some new features or fixes, please get
+involved and lend us a hand! The Axis developer community welcomes your
+participation.</p>
