ActiveSOAP is a high performance, lightweight, StAX based SOAP framework for document centric Web Services and SOAP intermediaries.
ActiveSOAP uses StAX to parse the SOAP headers for high performance, particularly for when used as a gateway or router. ActiveSOAP can then delegate the processing of a header or the SOAP body to a plugin so that messages can be processed via various XML marshalling tools like
- JAX-RPC via Axis
- alternative SOAP tools like XFire
