What are the benefits of using J2EE web services?
Starting from jboss-4.0.0 we offer a web service stack that is J2EE-1.4 compliant. This comes with a great number of advantages for our users.
Here are a few:
Portable web service endpoints and clients that do not need to have a dependency on a propriatary stack
Secure your investment and learn a standard rather than a propriatary solution
Achieve good interoperability by beeing BasicProfile-1.0 compliant
Take advantage of test coverage that comes with Sun's Compatibility Test Suite (>2300 WS tests)
Good integration with the overall JBoss architecture i.e. hot deployment/redeployment, management interface
Our support offering covers our own stack and the JBossWS team is dedicated full time to improve that constantly.
Any other stack is not supported byJBoss and you would need to contact the stack vendor for support.
