Microsoft BizTalk R11
CTP was released last week and now contains a sample that is
based on GlassFish ,
href="http://netbeans.org">NetBeans. Even though
today is April 1st, this is not intended to be an
Fool's Day joke. Read more about the sample in this
entry. The relevant bits from the entry are quoted below:
The sample shows how to
use the BizTalk Services Identity Security Token Service (STS) to
secure the communication between a Java client and a Java service
providing federated authentication and claims-based authorization. The
sample, which you can find in
./Samples/OtherPlatforms/StandaloneAccessControl/JavaEE5 once you
installed the SDK, is a pure
Java sample not requiring any of our bits on either the
service or client side. The interaction
with our services is purely happening on the wire.

Sun Microsystems has made
a very significant contribution to making this all work.
Before we started making changes to accommodate Java, there would have
been very little hope for anyone to get this seemingly simple scenario
to work. We had to make quite a few changes even though our service did
follow the specs.
As a result of this
1.2 is going to
be a better and more interoperable release for the Sun's customers and
the greater Java community and BizTalk Services as well as
our future identity products will be better and more interoperable,
too. Win-Win. Thank you,
Thank you Microsoft for adding this sample to the BizTalk Services SDK.
Metro team demonstrated a
2007. The demo shows how an Excel 2007 client can invoke a
secure and reliable endpoint deployed on GlassFish. The entire source
code for the sample, along with instructions to build, are available
This is possible today because of our participation in previous 6
