The JAX-WS 2.0 CVS repository is now active on java.net.
JAX-WS 2.0 was formerly known as JAX-RPC 2.0.
JAX-RPC 2.0 (Java API for XML Based RPC) has been renamed to JAX-WS 2.0 (Java API for XML Web Services).
This was done for a number of reasons, but the main reasons are:
- The JAX-RPC name is misleading, developers assume that all JAX-RPC is about is just RPC, not Web Services.
The JAX-RPC 2.0 SI has been re-architectured since 1.1.
I would like to highlight some of the new features available in this release here.
