Hi,

I am new to web services and I need to work with Weblogic 9.2 so which would be the best among these two, JAX-WS and AXIS2.

Thanks in Advance,

Those two can't be compared. JAX-WS is an API, while Axis2 is an implementation (of the JAX-WS API as well as other Java web service APIs).

Or do you mean to compare Axis2 with the JAX-WS reference implementation, or some other implementation?

WebLogic 9.2 does support web services out of the box. However they are JAX-RPC based with a JSR 181 "Web Services Metadata for the JavaTM Platform" extension which makes it about a generation earlier than either Axis2 and JAX-WS.

The JAX-WS RI pretty much commits you to using JAXB for data-binding and marshaling. In Axis2 to you can use ADB, XMLBeans or JiBX, though the core is Apache Axiom based.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
