JAX-WS RI 2.1.2 a.k.a Metro
Kohsuke's blog on Metro 1.0
highlights and key features and
Harold's blog on the Metro users and
There are some new
features and lots of
bug fixes went in to JAX-WS RI 2.1.3. Here are some of the highlights:
- GZIP compression support, see
- Woodstox support
- SOAPAction Based Dispatching
- .Net 2.0/WSE 3.0 MTOM Interop support
- JAXB RI 2.1.5
The JAX-WS RI 2.1.2 bits are integrated in to Glassfish v2 release via Metro
1.0. Go ahead and download JAX-WS RI 2.1.2 or
Metro 1.0 or just get
v2 which has everything with it.
Now what is next? We are working on JAX-WS.next roadmap and how it ties up
with Metro releases. The plan is to have a consistent and frequent release
cycle, maybe 8 weeks or so. The biggest challenge is automation of tests and
speedy releases. We are working on the plan and the good thing is there is a
consensus among various group here so most likely it will happen.
On the next version of JAX-WS RI, it is going to be JAX-WS RI 2.1.3, we are
looking for a Nov release and the corresponding Metro 1.1 release at the same
time. I will go over what are the new things coming up in JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 and
Metro 1.1 in another blog.
