This content is part of the series:Developing web services, Part 1 Stay tuned for additional content in this series. Before you start This tutorial is for developers who build applications that use web services with different approach. By using web services, your application can publish its function or message to the rest of the world. Part 1 starts simply, explaining the basic concepts behind web services and showing you how to develop web service with Axis2 using Different Approach Code First and Contract First.

Axis2 supports each of these except for WS-Policy, which will be supported in an upcoming version. CXF was written with Spring in mind; Axis2 is not. From a developer perspective, both frameworks behave very differently from one another. Axis2 has taken an approach that makes it in many ways resemble an application server in miniature.
Axis2 comes packaged with a WAR that can be deployed on a servlet container such as Tomcat that is designed to make web services easier to manage and deploy on the fly. The Axis2 Web Administration module allows Axis2 to be configured dynamically while applications are running--new services can be uploaded, activated or deactivated and their parameters may be changed. The administration UI also allows modules to be enabled on one or more running services.
The only downside to using the UI for these purposes is the fact that configuration changes made through it are not persistent--they go away when the servlet container is restarted. Axis2 lends itself towards web services that stand alone, independent of other applications, and offers a wide variety of functionality, and a good model for adding more functionality as time goes on through its modular architecture.
Some developers may find that a little too cumbersome or heavy-duty for their needs. These developers might prefer to look at Apache CXF. CXF concentrates on developer ergonomics and embeddability. CXF emphasizes code-first design, using simple APIs to make development of services from existing applications easier and its embeddability helps too.
Both have lively developer communities. Axis2 has been around longer but CXF is catching up quickly. My recommendation is this: If multilanguage support is important, Axis2 is the clear choice. If you care about an implementation focused on Java with tight integration into projects like Spring, CXF is a better choice, particularly for embedding web services inside of other programs.
