Web services is positioned as the technology for integration. For architects and developers on Java/Java Enterprise Edition platforms, Apache Axis is a key open source means by which SOAP-based Web services can be enabled for service-providing components. Most common Web services implementations, in spite of all their strengths, still suffer from the unreliability of the HTTP protocol and Web environment. While WS-Reliability is emerging to be a strong reliability standard, solutions requiring guaranteed mechanisms need to rely on message-oriented middleware (MOM) technologies. Asynchronous store-forward MOM technologies such as MQSeries, MSMQ (Microsoft Message Queuing), and SonicMQ are proven ways to achieve reliable and guaranteed information exchange. This article describes a solution that combines MOM and Apache Axis to achieve both guaranteed delivery and standards-based Web services for your integration undertakings. Note: This article is based on Apache Axis 1.2. Axis 2 currently has not reached release 1.0
