I've just finished putting together spring support for XFire, a java soap framework. Some of the benefits:
* Stax based so its fast and uses less memory than axis
* Easy to integrate into spring
* Very small/embeddable
This support is new, blah blah so there may be bugs.
You will also need to compile from CVS to be able to use this.
If the above warnings scare you then hold off until our next M4 release. But we would of course love testers, feedback, patches, etc. Please ping the mailing list if you run into any troubles or need help.
Instructions can be found here: http://xfire.codehaus.org/Spring
Sample to set up a soap service:
<bean name="/Echo" class="org.codehaus.xfire.spring.XFireExporter">
<property name="service"><ref bean="echo"/></property>
<property name="serviceInterface"><value>org.codehaus.xfire. spring.Echo</value></property>
<property name="serviceBuilder"><ref bean="xfire.serviceBuilder"/></property>
<property name="xfire"><ref bean="xfire"/></property>
<bean id="echo" class="org.codehaus.xfire.spring.EchoImpl"/>
