In this chapter, we discussed how Axis2 deployment works, the available types of deployment descriptors, and their structures. In addition, we also discussed the different types of configuration files available in Axis2. At the end of the chapter, we learned the most important thing, that is, the available deployment options in Axis2. We tested those options with a sample as well. The next step would be to create a few more services and see what happens.
In the next chapter, we will discuss more about the Axis2 information model. There we will discuss about static and dynamic data hierarchies, different entities in the hierarchy, how they are created, and which descriptors are responsible for the different entities.
