Welcome to Apache CXF!
Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and 
develop services using frontend programming APIs, like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. 
These services can speak a variety of protocols such as SOAP, XML/HTTP, 
RESTful HTTP, or CORBA and work over a variety of transports such as HTTP,

CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following 

    * Web Services Standards Support: CXF supports a variety of web service 
      standards including SOAP, the Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, 
      WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Security, WS-SecurityPolicy,
      WS-SecureConversation, and WS-Trust.
    * Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF
      implements the JAX-WS APIs. It also includes a "simple frontend" which 
      allows creation of clients and endpoints without annotations. CXF supports 
      both contract first development with WSDL and code first development 
      starting from Java.  There is also a JAX-RS frontend for providing 
      REST support.
    * Ease of use: CXF is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. There 
      are simple APIs to quickly build code-first services, Maven plug-ins to 
      make tooling integration easy, JAX-WS API support, Spring 2.x XML support 
      to make configuration a snap, and much more.
    * Binary and Legacy Protocol Support: CXF has been designed to provide a 
      pluggable architecture that supports not only XML but also non-XML type 
      bindings, such as JSON and CORBA, in combination with any type of transport.
