 <p>This User's Guide is written based on <a

-Distribution</a>. The standard binary distribution can be built using the
-source code or downloaded. Please refer to the <a
-href="installationguide.html#Download_Axis2">Installation Guide</a> for more
-information on the downloadables available in this release.</p>
-<p>If you are new to Axis, we recommend that you read <a

-1.x User's Guide</a> before you proceed any further.</p>
-<h3><a name="What_is_Axis2_">What is Axis2?</a></h3>
-<p>Apache Axis2 is the core engine for Web services. A new architecture for
-Axis was introduced during the August 2004 Summit in Colombo,Sri Lanka. This
-new architecture for Axis is more flexible, efficient and configurable. Some
-well established concepts from Axis 1.x, like handlers etc., have been
-preserved in this new architecture.Axis2 comes with many new features,
-enhancements and industry specification implementations.</p>
-<p>Axis2 offers the following key features:</p>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Speed</strong> - Axis2
uses its
-    own object model and StAX (Streaming API for XML) parsing to achieve
-    significantly greater speed than earlier versions of Apache Axis.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Low memory foot print</strong>-
-    Axis2 was designed ground-up keeping low memory foot print in mind.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>AXIOM</strong> - Axis2
comes with
-    its own light-weight object model, AXIOM, for message processing which is
-    extensible, highly performant and is developer convenient.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong><a name="Hot_Deployment">Hot
-    Deployment</a></strong> - Axis2 is equipped with the capability of
-    deploying Web service &amp; handlers while the system is up and running.
-    In other words, new services can be added to the system without having to
-    shut down the server. Simply drop the required Web service archive into
-    the services directory in the repository and the deployment model will
-    automatically deploy the service and make it available for use.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Asynchronous Web
-    services</strong> - Axis2 now supports asynchronous Web services &amp;
-    asynchronous Web services invocation using non-blocking clients and
-    transports .</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>MEP Support</strong>
- Axis2 now
-    comes handy with the flexibility to support Message Exchange Patterns
-    (MEPs) with in-built support for basic MEPs defined in WSDL 2.0.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Flexibility</strong>
- The Axis2
-    architecture gives the developer complete freedom to insert extensions
-    into the engine for custom header processing, system management, and
-    <em>anything else you can imagine</em>.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Stability</strong> -
-    defines a set of published interfaces which change relatively slowly
-    compared to the rest of Axis.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Component-oriented
-    Deployment</strong> - You can easily define reusable networks of Handlers
-    to implement common patterns of processing for your applications, or to
-    distribute to partners.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Transport Framework</strong>
- We
-    have a clean and simple abstraction for integrating and using Transports
-    (i.e., senders and listeners for SOAP over various protocols such as
-    SMTP, FTP, message-oriented middleware, etc), and the core of the engine
-    is completely transport-independent.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>WSDL support</strong>
- Axis2
-    supports the Web Service Description Language, version <a
-    href="">1.1</a> and <a
-    href="">2.0</a>, which allows you to easily
-    build stubs to access remote services, and also to automatically export
-    machine-readable descriptions of your deployed services from Axis2.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Add-ons</strong> - Several
-    services specifications have been incorporated including <a
-    href="" target="_blank">WSS4J</a> for security
-    (Apache Rampart), <a href=""
-    target="_blank">Sandesha</a> for reliable messaging, <a
-    href="" target="_blank">Kandula</a> which is
-    an encapsulation of WS-Coordination, WS-AtomicTransaction and
-    WS-BusinessActivity.</p>
-  </li>
-  <li><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>Composition and
-    Extensibility</strong> - Modules and phases improve support for
-    composability and extensibility. Modules supports composability and is
-    able to add support for new WS-* specifications in a simple and clean
-    manner. They are however not <a href="#Hot_Deployment">hot deployable</a>
-    as they change the overall behavior of the system.</p>
