Spring / Web services
What are the modules of Spring-WS?
The main modules are,
- XML module,
- Core module,
- Support module,
- and security module.
The XML module (spring-xml.jar) contains various XML support classes for Spring Web Services. This module is mainly intended for the Spring-WS framework itself, and not a Web service developers.
The Core module (spring-ws-core.jar) is the central part of the Spring's Web services functionality. It provides the central WebServiceMessage and SoapMessage interfaces, the server-side framework, with powerful message dispatching, and the various support classes for implementing Web service endpoints; and the client-side WebServiceTemplate.
The Support module (spring-ws-support.jar) contains additional transports (JMS, Email, and others).
The Security module (spring-ws-security.jar) provides a WS-Security implementation that integrates with the core Web service package. It allows you to add principal tokens, sign, and decrypt and encrypt SOAP messages. Additionally, it allows you to leverage your existing Spring Security security implementation for authentication and authorization.
