Description: Apache Axis2 is a Java-based implementation which provides users the ability to handle the processing of Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messages between applications, create application services, and deploy as a standalone server using the technology`s Standard Binary Distribution package. This technology may be configured to run on both the client and server sides of a Web services workflow when processing SOAP messages. Apache Axis2 allows users to create a Web service application from scratch by using Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs) as a service or generate a Web service from a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) file. Web services created through this technology may then be deployed on a servlet such as Apache Tomcat.

The standalone server can run in a WebLogic application server.

This technology allows users to store data on their local drive or configure a database such as WebLogic to deploy Web services and store Extensible Markup Language (XML) data.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary. For additional information or assistance regarding Section 508, please contact the Section 508 Office at
