"Good library to create Web Services (SOAP/REST)"

What do you like best?

Apache Axis 2 is a library used to create web services over SOAP which was supported by the first release as well, but this version supports REST web services also. This library is used to create modular and extendible web services, which can be extended by using plugin modules. The SOAP web services are implemented using WSDL XML files and REST style is implemented using HTTP based methods and type of data. Apache Axis 2 also supports asynchronous web services which is based on messages, which on invocation does not wait for results, the message is queued and resolved later while the invocation returns.

What do you dislike?

Over all the library is good but one thing is that there are not yet many users of the Apache Axis 2, due to which there is not much community interaction. Restful APIs are already provided by J2EE libraries which are used extensively by users due to which Axis 2 is not much adopted. Also for asynchronous APIs, JMS and BEA Web logic is used which are present since long time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good library but make an informed decision, with comparison with other libraries provided by Oracle J2EE, Web Logic etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Apache Axis 2 for developing SOAP web services for Enterprise Mobility web applications.

"Great for SOAP/WSDL message generation and a big step up on Axis "

What do you like best?

A lot of improvements over Axis. It handles much more modern constructs and has a cleaner dependency tree than Axis. Better supported, IMHO Also handles REST interfaces.

What do you dislike?

Documentation is OK, but can be tricky to de-tangle responses for Axis vs Axis 2. They are NOT connected products, even though the names would imply so. There were some configurations that were not possible (which were understandable but required me to make changes to the library for an integration with a weird vendor set up. )

Recommendations to others considering the product

Works well. Don't expect it to be a simple drop in replacement for Axis. It's a newer approach, and also allows REST support, so you definitely can do more with it than Axis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generating Interfaces for integrations between our company software and various partner companies.

"Nice framework for Web service development"

What do you like best?

Ease of use of this framework. One just need to include the JAR in the project and then create the stubs, skeletons for the web services they want to use.

What do you dislike?

It's really a powerful framework for Web services, nothing much to dislike. But sometimes error messages are not self sufficient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used in our project to connect to remote web services using Axis. It was easy to communicate to remote services and setup was also easy.
