The Apache Axis2 server is now bundled in to host sample back-end services, helping to demonstrate sample configurations in this new version of Apache Synapse which is currently under incubation at the Apache Software Foundation Web services project.
Apache Synapse is a mediation framework for Web services. It allows messages flowing through, into, or out of an organization to be mediated. Apache Synapse promises to be a robust, lightweight implementation of a highly scalable and distributed service mediation framework based on Web services specifications.
