Java SOAP implementation by Apache
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.
