Subject [ANN] Axiom 1.2.9 released
Date Mon, 12 Jul 2010 19:51:57 GMT
Apache Axiom Team is pleased to announce the release of Axiom 1.2.9.
The release is available for download at:


Apache Axiom is a StAX-based, XML Infoset compliant object model which
supports on-demand building of the object tree. It supports a novel
"pull-through" model which allows one to turn off the tree building
and directly access the underlying pull event stream. It also has
built in support for XML Optimized Packaging (XOP) and MTOM, the
combination of which allows XML to carry binary data efficiently and
in a transparent manner. The combination of these is an easy to use
API with a very high performant architecture!

Developed as part of Apache Axis2, Apache Axiom is the core of Apache
Axis2. However, it is a pure standalone XML Infoset model with novel
features and can be used independently of Apache Axis2.

Highlights in this release:

- Improved interoperability with StAX implementations other than
Woodstox. Axiom now detects the StAX implementation that is used and
works around interoperability issues. In particular, version 1.2.9
solves the longstanding concurrency issue that occurs when using Axiom
with SJSXP.
- Better control over XMLInputFactory and XMLOutputFactory settings.
It is now possible to use property files to define application wide
default settings for the StAX factories used by StAXUtils. It is also
possible to specify a particular configuration when requesting a StAX
parser from StAXUtils.
- Improved XOP/MTOM handling. Axiom 1.2.9 is able to stream
binary/base64 data in several situations where this was not possible
previously. The behavior of Axiom 1.2.9 is also more consistent with
respect to XOP encoded data sent to the application, solving some
issues where attachments were processed incorrectly.
- Improved documentation. There is now more and better Javadoc. Also,
a user guide is available in HTML and as PDF.
- Better OSGi support.
- Improved consistency of the core interfaces. E.g. OMDocument now has
a build method.
