I'm happy to announce that the final release of Apache Java XML Security 1.4.2 is now available.
A while ago, I blogged about XML Signature debugging and how to configure the logging mechanism to emit debug information.
This configuration works if you are using the JSR 105 bundled with JDK 6.
JSR 105 (XML Digital Signature API) is included with JDK 6, but is also available separately, for example as part of the Apache XML Security Project. This allows you to use the JSR with earlier JDK/JREs such as JDK 1.4 or JDK 5.
This will be a great opportunity to learn more about the new Java APIs for XML Signature and Encryption.
In a previous blog entry, I wrote about how to enable logging to get debugging output when using the Java XML DSig API to validate an XML Signature. There are also various methods in the API that you can invoke to get similar information.
Apache XML Security 1.4.1 is ready for download.
This is a bugfix release that contains a major fix to the canonicalization engine. This bug was introduced in the 1.4.0 release, so it is highly recommended that anyone
using 1.4.0 upgrade to the 1.4.1 version.
Wow, JavaOne is here again, next week to be exact! I hope you are
going. We have a bunch of new security features in the JDK and
a number of things we are thinking about for the future.

Check out my new technicle article on java.sun.com: Programming With the Java XML Digital Signature API.
This article introduces you to the new XML Digital Signature API in JDK 6 and shows you how to generate and validate an XML Signature using the API.
Apache Java XML Security 1.4 has just been released. This is the first release that contains an implementation of JSR 105, the standard Java XML Digital Signature API. It also contains several performance and memory reduction improvements. See the website for more details and a download link.
