Apache CXF offers the most flexible support for both REST and SOAP of any Java web services stack, including support for different XML data bindings and JSON output for REST web services.
In this presentation you'll see how to implement and deploy CXF web services, using both Java standards including JAX-RS and JAX-WS and custom CXF extensions. You'll also learn about the different configuration options supported by CXF, including Spring-based, annotation-based, and direct configuration in code, and get an idea of how easily web services projects can be implemented using CXF. Finally, you'll see how CXF fits into the Apache open source SOA infrastructure.

PJUG meetings start with some time to eat and socialize (pizza and beverages are provided), followed by the featured speaker, then Q&A, discussion, sometimes a drawing to give away swag. :)
Though we like knowing how many people to expect, you don't *have* to RSVP, on Upcoming or otherwise. Go ahead and just show up!
Many people also go for a drink and further discussion following the meeting, at a location determined ad hoc (lately, Trees restaurant in the same building).
