Java Web Services and XML
JAX-WS 2.0 no longer generates non-portable artifacts. As a result the size of generated code has been greatly reduced.
Charles Beckham, Todd Fast, and Mike Frisino attempt to answer the intergalactic question: What's the answer to everything (for web services orchestration in SOA)? The answer isn't 42.
The JWSDP projects include the WS and XML components in GlassFish, and, since GlassFish will be available under CDDL, so will our projects.
The heart of any developer community are its developers, and the developers page for the JWSDP community will try to highlight them. I just added a few names preparing for JavaOne
The JAXB 2.0 and JAX-RPC 2.0 java.net forum has been renamed to JAXB 2.0 and JAX-WS 2.0 to be consistent with the rename of JAX-RPC 2.0 to JAX-WS 2.0.
Java API for XML Web Services 2.0 Standard Implementation Early Access 2 is now available.
Common Annotations for the Java Platform Public Review
The JAX-WS 2.0 Public Review version of the specifcation has been posted
to the JCP.
JAX-WS 2.0 RI Early Access 2 is now available. This version of JAX-WS provides support for SOAP 1.2, MTOM. This is also the first implementation of a dynamic runtime that does not rely on non portable artifacts.
Eduardo, Kohsuke and me are going to present a BOF on Web Services stack from java.net during the upcoming JavaOne conference. See more details.
Sun announced it Service Registry. This is based on the freebXML Registry project and will be in the forthcoming JWSDP 1.6.
Our group just received a summer intern slot in the area of WS and RSS.
WS-I is meeting this week in Amsterdam for the summer plenary meeting.
JAXP 1.4 is the version of JAXP for Mustang. The CVS repository for JAXP 1.4 is now at Java.Net and it includes a high performance implementation of StAX
Many of the projects in the JWSDP community have multiple lives and are available individually, in the JWSDP bundle, and in many other artifacts. The latest one is the new GlassFish project.
Steve Loughran and Edmund Smith, from HP Labs, published a paper on "Rethinking the Java SOAP Stack". The paper examines JAX-RPC programming model for Web services. Here I post my comments on the article.
After a painful experience with Indigo CTP last month, I had a relatively smoother experience with Indigo Beta1 RC. It was made available around couple of weeks ago, as reported previously. I took a fresh Win XP + SP2 machine and installed Visual Studio 2005 Beta2, Indigo Runtime and then finally WinFX SDK. I had my first success when the Visual Studio started successfully, unlike last time, after all the installation was completed. The order of installation is important here otherwise it may not work.
JAXB RI has a plug-in mechanism to allow 3rd parties to extend its code generation behavior. In 1.0, projects like HyperJAXB and JAXB-verification took advantage of this feature and they were very successful.
I recently finished improving this functionality further for 2.0, so today I'm going to explain how to write a plug-in.
JWSDP wins the "Web Service or Related Tool of the Year" award at developer.com.
The JAX-WS 2.0 sources are now on java.net.
