Blog from February, 2010

I just finished the SOAP data format for Apache Camel. It is an extension of the well known JAXB data format and supports hosting or calling webservices without need for a big stack like CXF or Axis. In contrast to the big stacks there is no support for any additional WS-* standards but most people don´t use the extensions anyway.  The documentation is already available in the cwiki and will shortly be available on the camel main documentation. I will shortly post some interesting examples how to use the SOAP data format.

The code of the SOAP data format will be available in Camel 2.3.0 but you can already test it using the nightly builds or in maven when you use the snapshot repository. I would be happy to get some feedback. Does the data format already support your webservice needs or is something missing?
