Creating web service in Java can be a lengthy/complex process that (depending on framework used) may require the creation of several artifacts just to get a simple service running.
XFire (http://xfire.codehaus.org/) is the next generation of open source web service framework that makes it simpler and easier to create Java web services. XFire is becoming a favorite because of its low memory footprint and its speed (uses StAx). The framework also uses a plug-in architecture that let you plug your favorite API such as XmlBeans, JAXB, Castor, etc. It integrates well with lightweight containsers such as Spring Framework and ESB/JBI containers such as ServiceMix (http://servicemix.org/).
In the June 2006 Tampa JUG meeting, we will explore XFire and how to use it to develop Java web services. Speaker RJ Salicco will provide insight into how to create effectively use XFire to develop services using platforms such as Spring, JBoss, and XmlBeans. Join us (and bring a friend) to take a look a this new tool. There will be plenty of code sample to get you started in your next project.
