JBossWS is a web service framework developed as part of the JBoss Application Server.
JBossWS integration provides the application server with any WS related technologies it needs for achieving compliance with the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6).
Starting from 3.x series, JBossWS comes with a web service framework which is basically an integration layer of third party web service stacks on top of multiple JBoss AS versions. JBossWS provides additional value over the standards implemented in collaboration with the supported stacks' communities. This is achieved ensuring first class integration with the JBoss Application Server, common management, configuration, tooling, samples, etc.
With JBoss 4.x series the focus is mainly on the Apache CXF stack integration (JBossWS-CXF), with the goal of achieving the best integration of the first class CXF features on top of JBoss Application Server.
Features, status, roadmap
JBossWS features include many specifications / standards implementations as well as additional features, options, tools to improve ease of use, endpoint management and monitoring, etc.
An high level road map regarding future features is available on the wiki, while a detailed road map for the upcoming versions is found in our issue tracking system. You are always welcome to request and contribute a new feature.
