Apache web services engine

Apache Axis2/C is a Web services engine implemented in the C programming language. It is based on the extensible and flexible Axis2 architecture. Apache Axis2/C can be used to provide and consume WebServices. It has been implemented with portability and ability to embed in mind, hence could be used as a Web services enabler in other software.

Apache Axis2/C supports SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2, as well as REST style of Webservices. A single service could be exposed both as a SOAP style as well as a REST style service simultaneously. It also has built in MTOM support, that can be used to exchange binary data.

Apache Axis2/C is efficient, modular and is designed with extensibility. The extensible design allows it to support the full WS-* stack with the concept of modules. Apache Axis2/C is the Web services engine that supports the most number of WS-* specification implementations in C, with guaranteed interoperability. This enables using C in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) implementations, and would be very useful when integrating legacy systems into SOA.

The following WS-* specifications are supported, either as built in modules or as separate Apache projects:

WS-Addressing - Built in to Axis2/C
WS-Policy - Built in to Axis2/C
WS-Security - Implemented by Apache Rampart/C project
WS-SecurityPolicy - Built in to Axis2/C
WS-ReliableMessaging - Implemented by Apache Sandesha2/Cproject
WS-Eventing - Implemented by Apache Savan/Cproject
