Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.5.0 released!
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 15:43:46 GMT

The Apache CXF team is proud to announce the availability of the 2.5.0 

Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and 
develop services using frontend programming APIs like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. These 
services can speak a variety of protocols such as SOAP, XML/HTTP, RESTful 
HTTP, or  CORBA and work over a variety of transports such as HTTP and JMS. 

CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following 
* Web Services Standards Support: CXF supports a variety of web service 
standards including SOAP, the WSI Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, WS-
Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Security, WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, and 

* REST based service creation based on JAX-RS 1.1 standard API's.
* Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF  
provides a JAX-WS 2.2 Compliant frontend. It also includes a "simple frontend" 
which allows creation of clients and endpoints without annotations. CXF 
supports both contract first development with WSDL and code first development 
starting from Java.
* Ease of use: CXF is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. There  are 
simple APIs to quickly build code-first services, Maven plug-ins to make 
tooling integration easy, JAX-WS API support, Spring  XML support to make 
configuration a snap, and much more.

What's new in CXF 2.5.0:
* New Security Token Service
* New WS-Notification service
* Initial OAuth support for JAX-RS services
* WS-MetadataExchange support
* Enhanced WS-RM interopability
* Enhanced OSGi and Karaf integration
