  <h2>Axis Alpha Release Notes</h2>
  <p>This is the <a href=""> 
  alpha release</a> of the <a href="">
  Axis SOAP library</a>.  (Wondering what Axis is?  Please see our
  <a href="">FAQ</a>.)</p>
  <p>This is an alpha release, and hence is not feature complete.  The main
  missing features include:</p>
  <li>No support for SOAP attachments
  <li>Deployment syntax not finalized
  <li>Incomplete Apache SOAP 2.2 deployment descriptor support
  <li>Minimal testing in EJB / application server frameworks
  <li>No support for WSDL, XML-RPC, SMTP
  <li>Limited documentation
  <p>The Axis team is working on all of these missing features.</p>
  <p>So, why an alpha release?</p>
  <p>The Axis code already has:</p>
  <li>Significantly higher performance than Apache SOAP 2.2
  <li>Good interoperability with other SOAP implementations
  <li>A streaming-oriented model for message parsing (SAX, not DOM)
  <li>A modular, configurable message handling architecture
  <li>A pluggable transport framework
  <li>An extensive package and functional test suite
  <p>Early adopters and advanced SOAP developers will find this release to be of
  interest.  Most Apache SOAP users, and those who need a fully featured
  next-version replacement for Apache SOAP 2.2, should hold off at least
  until Axis's beta release.  Progress towards that beta release may be
  viewed on Axis's <a href="">
  requirements and status page</a>.</p>
