Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.7.0 released!
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 17:45:02 GMT

The Apache CXF team is proud to announce the availability of the 2.7.0 

Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and 
develop services using frontend programming APIs like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. 
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 
and JMS. 

CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the 
following areas: 

* 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, WS-Security, WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, and 

* REST based service creation based on JAX-RS 1.1 standard API's.

* Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF  
provides a JAX-WS 2.2 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  XML support to make 
configuration a snap, and much more.

What's new in CXF 2.7.0:
* New UDP Transport
* Support for the SOAP/UDP Specification
* WS-Discovery support
* New HTTP transport based on Apache HTTP Components HttpAsyncClient
* Initial support for some parts of the upcoming JAX-RS 2.0 specification
* Much more.......

See the 2.7 Migration guide at:
for more details about the release and the new features.   Most notable is that
support for Java 5 has been dropped.  CXF now requires Java 6 or newer.

As always, we welcome feedback on our mailing lists:
