  2. Client APIs: Easy to use service client API and more advanced operation
client API

  3. Transports supported: HTTP
         * Inbuilt HTTP server called simple axis server
         * Apache2 httpd module called mod_axis2 for server side
         * IIS module for server side
         * Client transport with ability to enable SSL support
         * Basic HTTP Authentication
         * Digest HTTP Authentication
         * libcurl based client transport

  4. Transports supported: HTTPS
         * HTTPS Transport implementation using OpenSSL

  5. Transports supported: TCP
         * for both client and server side

  6. Transport proxy support (HTTP)
         * Proxy Authentication (Basic/Digest)

  7. Module architecture, mechanism to extend the SOAP processing model.

  8. WS-Addressing support, both the submission (2004/08) and final
(2005/08) versions,
     implemented as a module.

  9. MTOM/XOP support.

         * Guththila pull parser support

 12. Both directory based and archive based deployment models for deploying
     services and modules

 13. Description hierarchy providing access to static data of
     Axis2/C runtime (configuration, service groups, services, operations
and messages)

 14. Context hierarchy providing access to dynamic
     Axis2/C runtime information (corresponding contexts to map to each
level of
     description hierarchy)

 15. Message receiver abstraction
         * Inbuilt raw XML message receiver

 16. Code generation tool for stub and skeleton generation for a given
     WSDL (based on Java tool)
         *  Axis Data Binding (ADB) support

 17. REST support (more POX like) using  HTTP POST, GET, HEAD, PUT and
         *  Support for RESTful Services
