This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See web services work yet. Can anyone tell me the benefits of using Axis as opposed to another marshalling/unmarshalling tool?
Axis is not a XML-Java binding tool AT ALL, while Castor is.
Axis is a SOAP implementation. It is usefull if you want to develop a web service solution. Castor XML is a databinding framework, allowing XML <---> Java bindings
Axis and Castor XML can be used together. You can receive-send a SOAP request using Axis and transform into Java Objects with Castor XML
