ActiveSOAP uses StAX (the Standard API for pull parsing) to implement the SOAP protocols and then it delegates to plugin Handler objects for the heavy duty processing of the XML payloads. This means that you only need to pay for what you need; use fast pull based event parsing or full data binding mechanisms like JAXB or XStream or DOMish APIs like XMLBeans when they make sense.

You to can use whatever XML marshalling and/or parsing tool you like to process different messages or headers. The following APIs are currently supported


In addition to the core StAX processing of SOAP requests (client and server side) ActiveSOAP provides support for WS-Addressing and provides multiple WSIF providers.
