We've added support to ActiveSOAP for XStream making it easy to expose POJOs over REST or SOAP endpoints using XStream's simple & fast XML serialization. There are some examples here.

So now we've the best of both worlds.

  • if you're starting from the POJO route you can use a tool like XStream to work in a REST/SOAP way
  • if you're given a WSDL / XSD to interact with, you can use XMLBeans to autogenerate XMLBeans from the WSDL/XSD

You can happily mix and match both approaches, together with any other kinds of XML binding tools you wish - all using a simple & lightweight REST/SOAP framework with pluggable transports for HTTP and JMS.
