« GEOINT, Thin Client Visualization and We... | Main | The S stands for Simple by Pete Lacey »

From the announcement:

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 extend its functionality for features such as security and reliability.

Major Changes Since 1.0:
- - Significantly improved documentation
- - Significantly improved support for POJO services and clients
- - Significantly improved support for Spring services
- - Significantly improved Axis Data Binding (ADB) to increase schema coverage and overall stability
- - Improved service lifecycle model
- - Improved JMS support
- - Improved handler and module interfaces
- - Improved Eclipse and Idea plugins
- - New Attachments API for sending & receiving MTOM and SwA attachments
- - Built in support for WS-Policy via Apache Neethi
- - Added support for unwrapping Web service requests
- - Fixed tons of small and not-so-small bugs
- - Major refactoring of release structure to make usage easy

Known Issues and Limitations in 1.1 Release:
- - 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

I have updated my "Install and configure Apache Tomcat/Axis for web service development on Windows XP SP2" post for Axis2 1.1.
