Welcome to Talend Service Factory Community Edition!

Talend Service Factory Community Edition (CE) uses the industry leading 
open source Apache CXF implementation of JAX-WS to help you service enable 
your existing applications and interfaces.  The CXF lightweight, modular 
architecture is based on Spring, so it will work with your application 
regardless of the platform on which it is running.  It will run on 
stand-alone JVM applications, as part of a servlet container such as 
Tomcat, within a JEE server, or in an OSGi container such as Equinox.  

CXF supports Web Services using SOAP with full WS-*functionality including 
support for WS-Addressing, WS-Reliable Messaging, and WS-Security over 
both HTTP and JMS transports.  CXF's elegantly simple architecture allows 
declarative, policy-centric support of these qualities of service through 
configuration rather than code.  It also supports non-SOAP bindings 
including REST.  CXF open standards and portability enable you to deliver 
interoperability for your applications to maximize the value of your 
application to your users.  

The Talend Service Factory CE distribution supplements the Apache CXF 
core with support for OSGi containers along with illustrative examples 
for how to implement different messaging qualities of service in different 
container environments.  CXF design-tools include support for Maven 
plug-ins, WSDL tooling, and Spring 2.x XML configuration support.  TSF 
supplements this with additional Maven archetypes to support development 
in an OSGi environment.


Apache CXF
OSGi Container
Getting Started

Apache CXF

This package contains a complete version of Apache CXF, the industry 
leading open source solution for web services.  It also includes value
added components such as OSGi container and several new examples.
For more information about Apache CXF see .  

OSGi container 

The container subdirectory contains a preconfigured OSGi container that 
contains all the required OSGi bundles for the CXF 3rd party dependencies.
It also includes Apache Karaf to provide easy administration and 
configuration.  See the karaf-manual pdf file in the container directory 
for more information about Karaf.  For more information about OSGi and Apache 
Karaf see .

OSGi provides a mature, open standards based, highly modular framework for 
managing component dependencies, service invocation, and lifecycles.  It is 
the basis for Eclipse and provides a lightweight alternative to more 
monolithic JEE containers while still retaining the powerful management 
features necessary for the enterprise.

Lean Java 6 Distribution 

The Talend Service Factory CE has been tuned for operation with Java 6.
lib/ - the contents of the lib directory have been optimized for use on 
Java 6.  Jars that are redundant to what is available in Java 6 have been

Examples are documented individually and include instructions for building
and running each example with just a few command lines.  See below for obtaining 
the examples.


Talend Service Factory CE provides several new examples in a separate download
available from .  The 
example applications and tutorials demonstrate functionality and advanced 
features of Talend Service Factory CE.  The examples demonstrate how to use 
different functionality including:
* Advanced JAX-RS
* multi-platform deployment to JVM / Servlet / JEE Containers / OSGi
* asynchronous messaging
* Various WS-Security options
