Apache Addressing was an implementation of the Web Services Addressing (WS-Addressing), published by the IBM, Microsoft and BEA as a joint specification, on top of Apache Axis. Version 1.0 of the library was donated to the Apache Software Foundation, which closed the project in 2005.
As of today, a considerable amount of projects depend on this library. Unfortunately, most of them use modified versions, and this produces incompatibility issues that are extremely hard to avoid, even using advanced techniques like classpath concealing. In an effort of integrating several of these projects, I have decided to take this library out from the Apache archives and move it forward to a stable, bug-free version that could be used by any of the affected projects.
