SAAJ API Reference Implementation 1.3.4

This section provides a tutorial example on how to download SAAJ API and Reference Implementation 1.3.4 from SAAJ home page and use them instead of using the default implementation from JDK 1.6.0.

Since I am not sure what is the version and release number of the default implementation of SAAJ included in JDK 1.6, I want to download and use the Reference Implementation release, SAAJ 1.3.4, provided at the SAAJ home page.

1. Go to

2. Click the "Releases" link, then the "releases" folder icon.

3. Click to open the "1.3.4 (2)" sub folder.

4. Click to download "" file, and save it to the current folder on your local computer. The file size should be 312,559 bytes.

5. Unzip all files from "" to a sub folder ".\saaj1.3.4".

6. Copy two JAR files, saaj-api.jar and saaj-impl.jar, from ".\saaj1.3.4\saaj\lib" to your local library folder, like "\herong\lib".

Now I am ready to test SAAJ Reference Implementation 1.3.4 with my test program,, described in the previous toturial:

>javac -classpath \herong\lib\saaj-api.jar;\herong\lib\saaj-impl.jar

>java -classpath .;\herong\lib\saaj-api.jar;\herong\lib\saaj-impl.jar 

 SOAPConnectionFactory class: class com.sun.xml.messaging.saaj.client

 SOAPConnection class: class com.sun.xml.messaging.saaj.client
