Support For Arbitrary Parameter Types
A second milestone of Spring Web Services 2.0 is now available.
Spring Web Services aims to facilitate contract-first SOAP service development. With Spring Web Services, users can create document-driven Web services.
This release introduces the ability to use arbitrary parameter types in @Endpoint methods. Users can now mix and match parameters, instead of being limited in the return types. Currently supported parameters and return types include DOM Elements and types supported by an OXM Marshaller. Spring Web Services 2.0 Milestone 2 also supports Spring Security 3.0 and XMPP transport. More information is available at the Changelog.
