Another Web services stack comparison at JBoss wiki and GlassFish is looking really good. Read more details about the feature support here. Technorati: Web Services GlassFish WSIT JBoss J2EE
As I mentioned earlier, running a marathon is all about community. So I decided to show my support for GlassFish community by hand painting my running shirt on the day before marathon. My dad helped me trace it and then I painted it. Learn more about GlassFish and it's community. Get Started, Get Involved and participate in the Roadmap discussion. Read...
I've been asked this question multiple times and so finally decided to convert an internal presentation that into an external document. Why WS-Addressing ? describes the different use cases served by WS-Addressing and explains the two commonly used versions. JAX-WS 2.1 RI EA2 was recently released and supports W3C and Member Submission WS-Addressing. A more recent version of this RI is integrated...
JAX-WS 2.1 EA2, with new features and better quality, is out. Read Vivek's message about the announcement and the list of features. I'd like to highlight Users Guide that has been updated with an explanation for all the newly added features. I added a new section on WS-Addressing support in the RI. Rama published a blog on Support for WS-Addressing in JAX-WS 2.1 RI EA1 4 weeks ago. Based upon...
JAX-WS 2.1 RI replaced JAX-WS 2.0.1 and JAX-WSA 1.0 EA2 in WSIT approximately 2 weeks ago. This is where I've been spending most of my time during the past few weeks. With this change, WSIT is now using WS-Addressing functionality natively provided in JAX-WS 2.1 RI is used instead of relying upon a pluggable JAX-WSA 1.0 EA2. This approach has several benefits as outlined earlier. A complete...
Read Jorgen's interview on The Server Side about how the Interop plugfests at Microsoft are arranged. There is full section talking about WSIT and WCF interoperability towards the end of the interview. As mentioned in my previous plugfest reports (1, 2, 3), we have incrementally achieved a very good level of interoperability with Microsoft. And this is also evident (Green and Yellow is good) in...
Dims asked me to update the Web Services Stack matrix. I've worked in the Web services team at Sun since very beginning and have seen it growing to #1 toolkit and now supported natively in GlassFish. I was therefore tempted by the invitation and updated the matrix with GlassFish entries. Here are the key points I'd like to highlight: Most of the functionality in this matrix (for example JAX-WS...
"I" in WSIT stands for Interoperability. To ensure WSIT is interoperable with .NET 3.0, WSIT engineers made a third visit to Microsoft headquarters in less than a year. Microsoft hosted the third plugfest at their campus and Sun Microsystems showed up to test WSIT and GlassFish interoperability with their upcoming .NET 3.0 stack. Harold, Mike, Jiandong, Joe, Ken and myself (all from Sun...
WCF RC1 (probably in Jul CTP as well) changed the policy assertion namespace URI to declare the usage of Member Submission WS-Addressing. The namespace was changed from: http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/09/policy/addressing to http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/08/addressing/policy Thus any WSDL published by a WCF-based service endpoint using Member Submission WS-Addressing cannot be imported...
