Proposal for EWS, Enterprise Web Services - A Web services / project to implement J2EE Web Services
EWS will provide an open-source implementation of J2EE web services specification http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=109 based on Axis. JSR109 defines the Web Services for J2EE architecture.
J2EE Web Services does not interfere with the J2EE components functionality instead open a new avenue to access them as web services. This is a service architecture that leverages the J2EE component architecture to provide a client and server programming model which is portable and interoperable across application servers, provides a scalable secure environment, and yet is familiar to J2EE developers.
In addition to providing an implementation, a major focus of this project is to be the Web Service Stack of Geronimo J2EE Container. If there is enough interest and support, this project could later be promoted to a "regular" project under ws.apache.org.
About the name: "EWS" is shorten form of the Enterprise Web Services.
