    How to tell which Web Service stack(s) are in which Redhat J

    Lee Smith Newbie

      Please forgive this total newbie question, but I have been searching for 3 days to an answer to this question. I'm sure the info is out there, and I just haven't been smart enough to stumble upon it. Anyway, I am trying to understand which web service stacks are integrated in the various JBoss product offerings from Redhat, what standards each implement, and what the RH web services roadmap looks like. I am totally confused by all this, probably because I come from a background where I only had the choice of using ASP.NET for web services, and now there are too many options 8=).

      If I buy JBoss Application Server from Redhat, am I getting JBossWS as the web service solution? Or is JBossWS something that I have to acquire separately? Or are there multiple WS implementations (of which JBossWS is only one), any of which can be utilized with the JBoss AS?

      I purchased the JBoss Developer Studio from Redhat, which came with an entitlement to RHEL 5 (which I installed), and came bundled with the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (which appears to include JBoss Application Server 4.2). How can I tell what the web service stack is for the AS? On the IDE side of things, it looks like the JBDS wants me to create Apache Axis or Axis2 web services. I don't see any mention of JBossWS in the IDE. Am I missing some crucial plug-in?

      I fear the answer to my questions is that I am just totally clueless, but if some kind soul could point me to some specific information (just telling me to go to the forum or wiki won't help, as I've already been there and am still confused), I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
