I have recently started with web services.
In my project, I have to create a client side using wsdl provided.
I have implemented the client part using JAX-WS RI which is available as part of Java 6.
Now when I was going through some blogs, they mentioned that we should not use JAX-WS of java, as it is just an reference implementation and we have to go for libraries like Apache CXF or Axis2.

Could you please advice if we can use JAX-WS RI of java in production ?
At the moment with JAX-WS RI of Java, our client application testing is going on without any issues. Will it create any problem if we use it under high load ?

Welcome to the Ranch.

The JAX-WS RI is fine for production use, but you should not use the version built into the JRE (which always lags behind general releases). Instead, use the latest version that is distributed as Metro.

Will it create any problem if we use it under high load?

You should use a load-testing tool to find out. Not sure if Apache JMeter can send SOAP, but maybe SoapUI has a load testing mode.
