What is it?
The Apache Axis2/C is a SOAP engine implementation that can be used
to provide and consume Web Services. Axis2/C is an effort to implement Axis2
architecture, in C. Please have a look at
for an overview on Axis2 architecture.
Axis2/C supports both SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2. The soap processing model is
built on the AXIOM XML object model. Axis2/C is capable of handling
one-way messaging (In-Only) as well as request response messaging (In-Out).
It can be used in both synchronous and asynchronous modes.
Axis2/C has built in WS-Addressing support. It implements WS-Addressing 1.0
specification completely. It also has built in MTOM/XOP support for handling
As a project of the Apache Software Foundation, the
developers aim to collaboratively develop and maintain a robust,
commercial-grade, standards-based Web Services stack implementation with
freely available source code.
