Apache AXIOM 1.0 Release Note
After nearly 2 years of development and numerous incremental releases, we are proud to announce the release of Version 1.0 of Apache AXIOM!
Apache AXIOM is a StAX-based, XML Infoset compliant object model which supports on-demand building of the object tree. It supports a novel "pull-through" model which allows one to turn off the tree building and directly access the underlying pull event stream. It also has built in support for XML Optimized Packaging (XOP) and MTOM, the combination of which allows XML to carry binary data efficiently and in a transparent manner. The combination of these is an easy to use API with a very high performant architecture!
Developed as part of Apache Axis2, Apache AXIOM is the core of Apache Axis2. However, it is a pure standalone XML Infoset model with novel features and can be used independently of Apache Axis2.
- Full XML Infoset compliant XML object model
- StAX based builders with on-demand building and pull-through
- XOP/MTOM support offering direct binary support
- Convenient SOAP Infoset API on top of AXIOM
- Two implementations included:
- Linked list based implementation
- W3C DOM supporting implementation
- Highly performant
As always with Apache projects, any contribution in the form of patches, testing, suggestions, submitting improvements to the documentation, and reporting bugs are always welcome. Please help us to shape the future!
Thanks for your interest in Apache AXIOM.
