Java Web Services and XML
Schema for JAX-WS binding customization is available online.
Human Powered Services (HPS) are the piece of the puzzle that meshes BPM with SOA... With HPS in the mix choreographing Human and Autonomous services is seamless, without HPS in the mix choreographing Human and Autonomous services is a pain.
Tip for running JAX-WS RI Samples with Tomcat 6.0
Members of the Project Tango (part of the Metro web services stack) team
were at Microsoft's Redmond campus last week to participate in a
plugfest to ensure web service interoperability between Java and .NET
users@jax-ws and users@wsit are merged to users@metro.
One common complaint from the JAXB users is the lack of support for binding 3rd party classes. The scenario is this --- you are trying to annotate your classes with JAXB annotations to make it XML bindable, but some of the classes are coming from libraries and JDK, and thus you cannot put necessary JAXB annotations on it.
I just released the JAXB RI 2.1.4. This version contains a number of bug fixes and should be good for anyone using 2.1.x RIs today.
Fedor Malyshkin started a very interesting JAX-WS commons project that gets rid of wsgen.
I presented Tango at Jazoon in Zurich, Switzerland last week. Here's my trip report.
Sun has participated with IBM in interop testing of section 2.1 of Web Services Addressing 1.0 - Metadata specification which has recently been requested for transition to Candidate Recommendation. Section 2.1 deals with Referencing WSDL Metadata from an EPR and Sun has passed all the tests related to this feature.
I'll be in Zurich next week at the Jazoon conference, giving a presentation on the Tango features (i.e., .NET 3.0 interoperability) of the GlassFish Metro web services stack.
The GlassFish web services stack is now called Metro (instead of
JAX-WS RI + Tango). Tango features are included in the Metro stack.
Introducing Metro, a complete web service stack built around the JAX-WS RI.
WSIT Milestone 5, the latest and greatest in our march towards FCS, is now available.
Stateful web service support seems to be getting some traction, as Scott Balmos reported that it's interoperable with C#. See the discussion in TSS.com.
I just posted the reference of the complete JAXB binding customization elements.
Two months after releasing JAXP RI version 1.4.1, we are now releasing version 1.4.2. There have been a few important bug fixes but the main driver for this release has been a problem found using the 1.4.1 RI on top of JDK 1.4. We discovered this last week while integrating a few bug fixes into an update release of JDK 6. Read on if you have plans to use the latest RI on top of JDK 1.4.
Web Services Interoperability Technology
(WSIT, aka Project Tango),
integrated in GlassFish V2
builds, provides a implementation of
enterprise Web services specifications and enables first-class
interoperability with .NET 3.0 framework. However if you download
stand-alone WSIT builds, then you can also install similar bits on
5.5.17. In this entry, I provide a script...
A discussion has been started in the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list about typed extensions to the StAX API. We hope this discussion will serve as the basis for a proposal to be incorporated in the next release of the API. Subscribe to the mailing list (it is moderated) if you are interested in influecing this next-gen API.
To add to the list of courses being offered in the Sun training and certification, is an offering on XML and Web Services security (DWS-4120-EE5) in the Java EE track.
