    JAXR (JSR 93) is a standard API to access XML registries. It can be used to access registries like UDDI and ebXML.


    JAXR and J2EE


    J2EE 1.4 requires vendors to support JAXR. Infact, the Compatibility Test Suite for J2EE 1.4 compliance has a lot of tests for Jaxr.


    JAXR and JBoss


    JBoss 4.0.2 has Apache jUDDI and Apache Scout (JAXR Implementation) integrated, that passes the TCK for JAXR (as part of the J2EE 1.4 TCK).


    JBoss 4.0 and 4.0.1 has Jaxr support with:

    • Jaxr API implementation.



    JBoss 5.0 will have Jaxr support with:

    part of J2EE 1.4 certification.
