The Woden project is a subproject of the Apache Web Services Project to develop a Java class library for reading, manipulating, creating and writing WSDL documents, initially to support WSDL 2.0 but with the longer term aim of supporting past, present and future versions of WSDL. There are two main deliverables: an API and an implementation. The Woden API consists of a set of Java interfaces. The WSDL 2.0-specific portion of the Woden API conforms to the W3C WSDL 2.0 specification. The implementation will be a high performance implementation directly usable in other Apache projects such as Axis2.
