Java Web Services and XML

To highlight the savings in generated code with JAX-WS 2.0 compared to JAX-RPC 1.1, I ran the WS-I Sample application WSDL files through JAX-RPC's wscompile and JAX-WS's wsimport. The results are very good. JAX-RPC 1.1 generated 128 files that were 365KB in size. JAX-WS 2.0 generated only 61 files for a total size of 83KB. That is a 52% reduction in the number of files generated and a 77%...

I thought that a session title that had the phrase "Hitchhicker's Guide" in it would draw a good audience, but I had no inkling of the crush of humanity waiting to get into the session "A Hitchhiker's Guide to SOA: Orchestrating Loosely Coupled J2EE Services with BPMN and BPEL." It felt like Times Square at New Year's Eve. This was worth the mob scene. I know a few things about SOA,...

We (Sun bloggers) thought there would be no news reports on Sun open sourcing the AppServer until the beginning of JavaOne tomorrow morning but it seems the news are out there (see [1] for example). I don't know if this was intentional or not - some of the initial pieces came from NZ, so maybe somebody didn't indicate what TZ the release date was? - but, in any case, we checked (blogging by...

I've added brief blurbs for six additional developers to the developers page for the JWSDP community. The developers added are: Alan Hudson Lexi Valikov Ben Gordon Don Brutzman John Swift Kirill Grouchnikov My intention is to have descriptions for all developers in this page. This will take some time, but I wanted to get started before JavaOne. Incidentally, although not all JWSDP...

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. To read about the JAX-RPC 2.0 rename to JAX-WS 2.0 read my blog entry here. The JAXB and JAX-WS developement teams had worked very hard to release early access 2 of these technologies yesterday. Please download JAXB 2.0 EA2 and JAX-WS 2.0 EA2 and...

Java API for XML Web Services 2.0 Standard Implementation Early Access 2 was released yesterday. Although JAX-WS 2.0 CVS repository is available for over a month on java.net, this is a milestone build indicating a new chunk of functionality from EA. In terms of new features, SOAP 1.2, MTOM, and swaRef support has been added. Several new samples (fromjava-soap12, fromwsdl-soap12, mtom, and mtom-...

JAX-WS 2.0 Early Access 2 is now available. This version of JAX-WS provides support for SOAP 1.2, MTOM and Swaref. This is also the first implementation of a dynamic runtime that does not rely on non portable artifacts. We have removed the wsdeploy tool since we no longer generated non portable artifacts. We have redefined the RI's deployment descriptor used on stand alone servlet containers...

The Java Web Services Developer Pack community on java.net groups a number of inter-related Java projects in the Web Services and XML area at Java.Net that either implement the core Java WS and XML APIs or that take advantage of them to provide additional functionality to the developer community. These projects will be presented by Eduardo, Kohsuke and me during the The Web Services Stack from...

Wednesday, Sun announced its Service Registry. This product is based on the freebXML Registry project at SourceForge that is implementing the complete OASIS ebXML Registry specifications as defined by the OASIS ebXML Registry Technical Committee. This project is part of the JWSDP community but the project has been ongoing for quite some time and its code repository is located at SourceForge....

JAXP 1.4 is the next release for JAXP, intended for Mustang. JAXP 1.4 is a maintenance release: it provides a few small spec improvements and fixes but mostly it provides some utility classes to make it easier to use StAX and JAXP 1.3 together. The CVS repository for the JAXP 1.4 Reference Implementation just went live at Java.Net in the JWSDP community. One of the nice things of this JAXP 1.4...

The JWSDP community groups a number of inter-related Java projects in the Web Services and XML area at Java.Net. These projects include XML Binary Encoding (FI), XML Processing (JAXP and SJSXP), XML Data Binding (the JAXB family of projects including the latest JAXB-workshop), WS Communication (JAX-RPC et al.) and samples. These projects are all available individually at Java.Net but, in...

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. Marc Hadley posted his comments last week. And I agree with Marc that the paper is based upon JAX-RPC 1.1 and ignored the advances made in JAX-WS (Java API for XML Web Services, nee...

After a painful experience (1, 2, 3, 4) 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...

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. What can a plug-in do? XJC performs a modeling of the classes...

The JAX-WS 2.0 CVS repository is now active on java.net. JAX-WS 2.0 was formerly known as JAX-RPC 2.0. For more information on this rename, please read my previous blog. JAX-WS will now be fully developed using a CVS repository in the jax-ws-sources project. You can get access to this project and repository by going the the JAX-RPC project page and following the links under the Message from...
