-
-    <p>Axis2 supports databinding using XML-Beans from 0.9 release. For more

-  <li><a name="a2"><strong>What is OMElement, What does it
-    represents?</strong></a><br>
-
-    <p>OMElement is Axis2 representation of XML, it provide a tree model like
-    DOM. If you are familiar with DOM or JDOM you can soon get familiarize
-    with OM quickly. For more information read<a href="OMTutorial.html">

-<h1>Client API</h1>
-<ol>
-  <li><strong>I want to do request response Messaging, Where should I
-    look?</strong><br>
-
-    <p>Look at the <a
-    href="../modules/core/src/org/apache/axis2/client/Call.java">Call</a>
-    class, for more information please read the <a href="userguide.html">user
-    guide</a></p>
-  </li>
-  <li><strong>I want to do One Way Messaging, Where should I
-    look?</strong><br>
-
-    <p>Look at the <a
-    href="../modules/core/src/org/apache/axis2/client/MessageSender.java">MessageSender</a>
-    class, for more information please read the <a href="userguide.html">user
-    guide</a></p>
-  </li>
-  <li><strong>Why can not I set the Addressing properties in the
-    Call?</strong><br>
-
-    <p>Only in the case of the Message Sender the user allowed to edit the
-    Message Properties, In the case of Call the Message correlation is taken
-    care by the Client API and the Addressing Headers are under the Control
-    of Axis2.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><strong>When I try to do a non blocking call with use Separate Listener
-    true I get the error <i>to do two Transport Channels the Addressing
-    Modules must be engaged</i>, Why is this?</strong><br>
-
-    <p>To do the two transport Channel invocation you need to engage the
-    addressing module. You can enable it by un-commenting the entry in the
-    axis2.xml file or Call.engageModule(QName).</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><a name="b5"><strong>What is the Axis Repository?</strong></a><br>
-
-    <p>Repository store the configuration of Axis2, the users should specify
-    the repository folder starting the Axis Server (HTTP or TCP). In the case
-    of tomcat it is the webapps/axis2/WEB-INF folder. Following picture shows
-    a sample repository.</p>
-    <img src="images/faq/1.jpg">
-    <p>Modules and services have a archive format defined and they are
-    automatically picked up by Axis2 when they are copied to corresponding
-    folders.</p>
-
-    <h1>Maven</h1>
-    <ol>
-      <li><strong>I just installed maven and it gives an error when I was
-        trying to run maven on Axis2 ......</strong>
-        <p>Axis2 requires itest plugin to run some of the tests. Better get
-        it using following command.</p>
-        <ul>
-          <li>maven plugin:download -DgroupId=maven-itest-plugin
-            -DartifactId=maven-itest-plugin -Dversion=1.0

-        </ul>
-      </li>
-      <li><p><strong>I have problems building with maven 1.1</strong>
....<br>
-        </p>
-        <p>It seems that maven 1.1 doesn't come bundled with the required
-        artifact plugin. Run following to get it updated<br>
-        </p>
-        <ul>
-          <li>maven plugin:Download -DgroupId=maven
-            -DartifactId=maven-artifact-plugin -Dversion=1.6.</li>
-          <p>You may need to update the itest plugin too, using the above
-          command in #1.</p>

-
-<h2>Axis2 Background and Motivation</h2>
-
-<p>Axis1 was built under the assumption that other protocols such as
-WS-ReliableMessaging would be integrated into Axis1's handler chain.  Axis1
-had the concept of a MessageContext and a chain of transport, service, and
-global message handlers, but Axis1 lacked a clear extension architecture to
-enable clean composition of such layers. One of the key motivations for Axis2
-is to provide a clean and simple environment for implementations of
-associated WS standards such as <a
-href="http://ws.apache.org/sandesha/">Apache Sandesha</a> and <a
-href="http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/">Apache WSS4J</a>.  Implementations of
-associated standards should be able to easily interface with the base SOAP
-Message handling system.   In summary, Axis2 has a more modular and flexible
-message handling pipeline, it focuses on the details of message handling and
-provides clear hooks for implementations of associated Web Services standards
-and protocols.  This evolution will allow Axis to be a foundational
-technology for next generation Web Services.</p>
-
-<p>Axis2 introduces a representation for SOAP messages called <b>AXIOM (AXIs
-Object Model)</b>. AXIOM consists of two parts: a complete XML Infoset
-representation and a SOAP Infoset representation. The XML Infoset
-representation provides a JDOM-esque API built atop a deferred model via a
-StAX-based (Streaming API for XML) pull parsing API. A key feature of AXIOM
-is that it allows one to stop building the XML tree and just access the pull
-stream directly; thus enabling both maximum flexibility and maximum
-performance. This approach allows Axis2 to support multiple levels of
-abstraction for consuming and offering Web services: using plain AXIOM, using
-generated code and statically data-bound data types and so on.  Developers
-with demanding performance requirements will be able to use AXIOM to create
-highly scaleable Web Services.</p>
-
-<p>A third shift in Axis 2 is the de-emphasis of RPC-oriented Web Services
-and a shift towards more document-oriented, message style asynchronous
-service interactions.  With Axis2, clients can interact with servers in a
-number of ways, and the client API provides both a blocking and non-blocking
-API.  At the time of Axis1's design, RPC-style, synchronous, request-response
-interactions were the order of the day for Web services. Today service
-interactions are much more message-oriented and exploit many different
-message exchange patterns. The Axis2 engine architecture is careful to not
-build in any assumptions of request-response patterns to ensure that it can
-be used easily to support arbitrary message exchange patterns. Don't
-worry,you'll still be able to use Axis2 like you used Axis1, you'll just have
-a richer set of options for client-server interaction.</p>
