I am new to this group and also to webservices. I have been using soap 2.3 for developing webservices and now that apache has Axis, and other app-servers like weblogic 7.0 are saying that they are compatible to sun's jax-rpc and they have all agreed to make it a standard, do you feel that this will be the standard in future? Till now I had to download SOAP 2.3 on app-servers and use it instead of having a standard implementation procedure. Also how much effort do you think is migration from soap 2.3 to Axis, and what area should be of most focus (eg. axis handlers??)
Thanks,
Angshuman

JAX-RPC is the standard API for handling RPC based Web services in J2EE environment. J2EE 1.4 specification mandates it.
As I last heard, Both Axis and Weblogic 7.0 has an implementation of JAX-RPC. But I was told Weblogic 7.0 has a partial JAX-RPC implementation.
Apache SOAP 2.3 will be obsolete soon as Axis is the Apache's next-generation SOAP implementation which supersedes Apache SOAP.

Ofcourse, it is a painfull effort. You need to swap the APIs to support JAX-RPC. But it worths it. If you adapt JAX-RPC, then your code is safe and portable to any J2EE 1.4 environment. J2EE 1.4 RI will be available by June 03 (JavaONE).
