Last day of 2006 and a lot got accomplished, either directly or indirectly, during the year: Web Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT) is making interoperability between Java- and .NET 3.0-based Web services a reality. A stable version of WSIT is available via GlassFish and a nightly version can be downloaded here. Two milestones were released with an astounding...

A new thread started on TheServerSide prompted by Dims post on "Why bundling JAX-WS in Java6 was a bad idea!". Let me explain why I don't agree.  I still remember JavaOne 2005 technical keynote getting applauds from everybody when bundling Web services in Java6 was announced.

blogs.sun.com (the blogosphere of all Sun employees) allows each blog entry to be directly posted to a social bookmarking website, for example submit them to del.icio.us, dig them on Digg, discuss on Slashdot and other Web 2.0 sites.

His toughest fight is against the greatest threat ever known to the Galactic Alliance...the most nefarious force of evil in the universe...the diabolical fiend...

Today, I'm starting a series of blog entries on Web 2.0. These entries will describe my experience of learning different software offerings from Sun in Web 2.0. First, lets see what is Web 2.0. The term Web 2.0 was coined by OReilly Media  in the opening talk of first Web 2.0 conference (slides) held in San Francisco Oct 2004. This term is heavily discussed and criticized since it's...
An update to original set of properties is now available. THE FOLLOWING PROPERTIES ARE PROPRIETARY.  THEY CAN AND WILL CHANGE. We are providing this information to help with development and debugging.  These properties should not be used in deployments. WSIT Pipeline Assembler exposes multiple system properties to enable SOAP message logging using DumpPipe. Each property, if it's value...
