XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
Membrane SOAP Router is a modular SOAP intermediary written in Java. It is fully configurable due to Spring style configuration. You can audit SOAP traffic, route messages through DMZ, and gather performance statistics. The small memory consumption of less than 20 Megabytes makes it possible to run an instance of Membrane SOAP Monitor on any computer that provides or consumes Web services.
Moose is a framework for getting XML into and out of Java software. It integrates easily with Spring, Spring Web Services, or plain Java applications. It will generate an XML schema which describes your mapping configuration. Spring Web Services can wrap Moose's schema generator, creating a nice stack for simple, rapid development of SOAP Web services in Java.
WSF Staff is Web Service Framework for C++, AJAX, and J2ME that is based on Apache Axis2/C. WSF Staff wraps Apache Axis2/C code into C++, and also provides many additional features: a stateful Web services implementation in C++ with instance support, a synchronous and asynchronous client implementation in C++, AJAX, and J2ME, a service-component architecture implementation, support for RESTful Web services and clients, WSDL support with xsd import and export, J2ME client support (based on ksoap), a flexible and extensible code generator to generate any sort of Web service related source code (not only in C++), security support (users, groups, sessions, ACLs, etc.), and a Web application toolkit (webapp) with widget support.
Azzyzt JEE Tools is a set of Eclipse plugins for creating a so-called "azzyzted" project, and for creating code from a model. Azzyzt uses Java JPA entities as a model, and from that model it creates an enterprise application, ready to be deployed in a Java EE 6 application server like GlassFish 3.1, ready to be accessed via CORBA, SOAP, and REST. Thus the generated application is a set of Web services, providing all that you need in a typical CRUD application. Generated enterprise applications have separate source folders for generated and developer-supplied content. You can add your own functionality to a well-engineered base project. Azzyzt JEE Tools is not about user interfaces. It is expected that the generated application is accessed by a RIA frontend or by a fat client.
SOAP/REST Mock Service is a simple configurable framework to mock out SOAP or RESTful (or "REST-like") Web services. Its main goal is to support automated integration testing of applications that integrate with 3rd party Web services. Functionality and usage scenarios of the mock service are in a way analogous to unit testing mocking tools (like Mockito or EasyMock). Once properly configured, SOAP/REST Mock Service exposes Web service mocks that can be called from application code and controlled via a REST interface from integration test code (setup, verify, etc.).
