| Let me expand on that last sentence as it is important. Open source software is 
| available for use. It is free due to the conscious decision of the programmer(s). 
| It is able to provide functions equivalent to or better than proprietary software. 
| It is supported and maintained by the programmer(s) for free because they want to. 
| The programmers of that open source software are happy that we use their software. 
| It is not the end users fault to wish to use that free software for any reason.

CXF open source framework merges SOAP toolkit with Celtix ESB

,----[ Quote ]
| The history behind CXF is a fascinating study in the evolution of open source 
| development projects in our fast-moving times. The XFire project, originally 
| intended as a Java SOAP framework based on a high performance XML parser, 
| reached version 1.2.6 in May 2007 as an independent project hosted at the 
| Codehaus site. Further development of XFire then moved to the shelter of the 
| Apache Software Foundation, merging with the Celtix project as a standalone 
| Apache project called CXF. Some developers are still using the 1.2.6 version, 
| downloadable from Codehouse.
