WSO2 Web Services Application Server (WSO2 WSAS) 3.2.0 Released!

The WSO2 WSAS team is pleased to announce the release of version 3.2.0 of the Web Services Application Server(WSO2 WSAS).

WSO2 WSAS is the Enterprise ready Web services engine powered by Apache Axis2. It is a lightweight application server for Web services that incorporates leading open source components into a simple, easy-to-use and highly performant package. WSAS is based on the revolutionary WSO2 Carbon framework. Now you can adopt the middleware to suite your enterprise architecture. All the major features have been developed as pluggable Carbon components.

It supports Java components as services using both SOAP and REST models. Web services support include WS-Security, WS-Trust, WS-SecureConversation, WS-Reliable Messaging, WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, WS-SecurityPolicy and more, giving a fully secure and reliable infrastructure that interoperates with both J2EE and .NET frameworks using open standard protocols.

WSO2 WSAS is built on Apache Axis2, the popular Web services framework mainly developed by WSO2 engineers. WSO2 WSAS provides many value additions on top of Axis2, making it a more enterprise ready product. It also integrates other core Apache Web services projects such as Apache Axiom, Apache Rampart, Apache Sandesha2, Apache Savan , and Apache Neethi to form a production quality, comprehensive Web services server platform.
