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 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
