Subject [ANN] Apache Axis2 1.1.1 Released
Date Wed, 10 Jan 2007 11:12:25 GMT
Its been over a month since the 1.1 release of Apache Axis2 and we are
happy to announce the release of Apache Axis2 version 1.1.1.

The download is available at:

Apache Axis2 is a complete re-design and re-write of the widely used
Apache Axis engine and is a more efficient, more scalable, more modular
and more XML-oriented Web services framework. It is carefully designed
to support the easy addition of plug-in "modules" that extends its
functionality for features such as security and reliability.

Modules supporting WS-Security/Secure-Conversation (Apache Rampart),
WS-Trust (Apache Rahas), WS-Reliable Messaging (Apache Sandesha2) are
already available. Modules supporting WS-Eventing (Apache Savan) &amp;
WS-Transactions (Apache Kandula2) will be available soon after the
Apache Axis2 1.1.1 release.Please see these projects' own sites for
further information.

Major changes since 1.1:
- - Performance improvements
- - Bug fixes

Known issues and limitations in 1.1.1 release:
- - ADB does not support unwrapping of response messages(coming in 1.2)
- - JSR 181/183 Annotation support (coming in 1.2)
- - JaxMe and JAXBRI data binding support is experimental
- - Simple Axis Server does not support POX/REST
- - RPC  Message Receiver does not validate request against the schema
- - Axis2 Idea plugin shows random behavior when XMLBeans is used

Apache Axis2 1.1.1 is a bug fix release of Axis2's 1.1 version, which
was a major release since Axis2 1.0. We are striving for a simple and
happy first time user experience as well as satisfying advanced users.
