Apache Axis2 Releases

This page provides links to the release versions of Axis2 Java. For more information, please see Apache Release FAQ.

Different types of distributions are available for each released version:

Distribution Name Description
Binary Distribution This is the complete version of Axis2 and will contain samples as well. Since WS-Addressing implementation and SOAP Monitor utility modules are engaged in to Axis2, by default, this distribution will contain addressing.mar and soapmonitor.mar. But the other modules that are being developed within Axis2 will not be included here, and need to be downloaded separately.
Source Distribution This will contain the sources of Axis2 standard distribution. One can generate a binary distribution from this by typing $maven dist-bin (Set up Axis2 environment before running this command). Useful for advanced users.
WAR (Web Archive) Distribution This will be the web application of Axis2 which can be deployed in most of the servlet containers.
Documents Distribution This will contain all the documentation in one package.

Note: when downloading from a mirror please check the md5sum and verify the OpenPGP compatible signature from the main Apache site. These can be downloaded by following the links above. This KEYS file contains the public keys that can be used for verifying signatures. It is recommended that (when possible)a Web of trust is used to confirm the identity of these keys.
