Java Web Services and XML
I have revamped the JWSDP developer's home page at Java.Net.
Source code of JAXB RI and its libraries are finally open to public on java.net.
WS-Addressing 1.0 Core and SOAP in Last Call
Today, we finally shipped the early access of the JAXB RI 2.0. As a primary implementor of the RI, let me talk a little about the major improvements in this release.
WS-I Sample Application 1.1 EA is available for download. This version is a rewrite of the Sample Application 1.0 using JAX-RPC 2.0 Standard Implementation EA.
JAX-RPC 2.0 Standard Implementation EA was released yesterday on jax-rpc.dev.java.net with samples and documentation for all the new features.
The binaries for the Early Access of JAXB 2.0 and JAX-RPC 2.0 are out
The JAX-RPC 2.0 Standard Implementation Early Access has just been released. This is the first release of the SI using JAXB 2.0 as the binding technology. You can access this release at: http://jax-rpc.dev.java.net
XML Schema is THE type system of web services. Learn it, use it, live it; and stop hiding behind Java->WSDL tools.
The JAXP team just posted the sources for JAXP 1.3 to Java.net -- and here is a nutshell summary of what's new in JAXP 1.3...
One of the issues we spent a lot of time on is whether JAXB 2.0 should work with fields or getter/setter method pairs (properties). Today I'd like to go through the issues, so please tell us what you think.
JSR 222 Expert Group has published JAXB 2.0 Early Draft 2. There is lots of new functionality. Let us know what you think.
The techno-clairvoyants have been strangely quiet of late... so I am left on my own to predict what "The Next Big Thing" is going to be. I think that one "Big Thing" will be to put the "P" in COBOL: a Common Business Process Oriented Language.
One of the major enhancements in the JAXB 2.0 is an ability to bind your own hand-written classes --- often called as POJOs --- to XML. And it's very easy.
The JSR 224 Expert Group just published a second early draft of JAX-RPC 2.0. This blog entry outlines some of the new features in the specification and describes where we're headed next.
Yesterday I attended Indigo Day in San Francisco. Microsoft is putting together a good WS platform, and it includes their version of binary XML.
Why don't we make BPEL engines smarter?
As some of you might have already noticed, we just released a preview of what JAXB 2.0 and JAX-RPC 2.0 look like. Since my day job is to work on the JAXB RI, let me introduce some of the interesting things about the JAXB RI in this bundle.
We have two summer intern openings and we are looking for strong candidates.
I think Pierre Delisle's blog is a very good idea. So, for you in the Web Services and XML neck of the Java woods... what do you want to hear at J1'05?
