Summary     : SOAP implementation in Java
Description :
Apache AXIS is an implementation of the SOAP ("Simple Object Access
Protocol")
submission to W3C.

From the draft W3C specification:

SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchange of information in a
decentralized,
distributed environment. It is an XML based protocol that consists of three
parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a
message
and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of
application-defined datatypes, and a convention for representing remote
procedure calls and responses.

This project is a follow-on to the Apache SOAP project.

Update Information:

This update fixes a security vulnerability that caused axis not to verify
that the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's Common Name
(CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate, which allowed
man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via andaarbitrary valid
certificate (CVE-2012-5784).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Jan 21 2013 Mikolaj Izdebski  - 0:1.4-19
- Add missing connection hostname check against X.509 certificate name
- Resolves: CVE-2012-5784
