We're pleased to announce the availability of JiBX/WS v0.9-beta.
JiBX/WS is a framework for creating fast, simple web services.
* supports SOAP 1.1 and POX (Plain Old XML) protocols, with planned
support for REST and SOAP 1.2.
* supports HTTP and TCP/IP transports (using DIME message exchange).
* XML messages can be encoded as text or using the XBIS binary
format, for best performance.
* SOAP support is limited to document/literal (doc/lit) web
services, with no support for RPC/encoded.
* supports JDK 1.3.1 or later.
* supports the Spring Framework, but can also be used without Spring
This first public release has been a long time in gestation, with Dennis
and myself adding a number of new features to the previous jibxsoap code
base. JiBX/WS is an update to, and replacement for, the JibxSoap
project, which is in use by a number of organizations.
The main drivers for the project have been ease of use and performance.
Once you have JiBX binding definitions in place for your payloads,
there's little else you need to do to get a web service up and running.
Some performance comparisons are available in the presentation at
For more details see http://jibx.sourceforge.net/jibxws/. Downloads are
available from the JiBX SourceForge page. The Maven release is in the
JiBX Maven repository at http://jibx.sourceforge.net/maven2/, and should
be replicated to the main Maven repo over the next couple of days.
