Ramanujam A. Rao writes about combining Axis2, the next-generation Web services API of Apache Axis, with Spring to expose POJO-based, domain-tier applications as both REST- and SOAP-based web services.
This article explains how to expose existing POJO-driven J2EE applications as web services using Apache Axis2, while still providing enough room for scalability. It describes leveraging Spring, which already serves as the underlying dependency injection container for many J2EE applications today, to further facilitate the creation and control of these services. Finally, it discusses deployment strategies for Axis2 enterprise web services and lists the specific concerns with certain application servers such as IBM WebSphere.
