Jax-ws and apache axis

This is a newbie question. Can you tell me the difference between jax-ws and apache axis. Is it possible to build web services just using jax-ws and not apache axis. What would be advantages and disadvantages.

Thanks.

    Yeah you can just use jax ws:http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/jax_ws_2/
    I find it more intuitive. Some would tell you that axis is more bloated :http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnetinterop/archive/2008/07/30/changing-of-the-guard-axis-out-jaxws-in.aspx
    I would rather decide between jax ws and REST :https://blogs.oracle.com/enterprisetechtips/entry/implementing_restful_web_services_in
