Seems like WSE 2.0 finally got a friend to be tested against: Sun announced that the new Java Web Services Developer Pack (Java WSDP) version 1.4 supports the latest Web services security standards and Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) Basic Profile 1.1 with Attachments Profile 1.0. It also provides support for a full implementation of the OASIS Web Services Security (WSS) specification.
Let the testing begin.
Oh my, WSE-mania all around. The BizTalk Server 2004 team has just announced the BizTalk Server 2004 WSE Adapter Technology Preview:
The BizTalk Server Adapter for WSE 2.0 provides the following key benefits:
- Using policy, the ability to graphically consume secure Web services inside orchestration through a new WSE adapter.
- The ability to publish an orchestration as a secure web service through an enhanced WSE capable Web service publishing wizard.
- Support for the key features in WSE 2.0 including WS-Security and WS-Policy
Coupled with the rapid development features in BizTalk Server 2004 customers can now build service oriented architectures including secure Web services with plug-and-play end-points, providing management with built-in scale out capability and extensive system and business level monitoring.
No more theory - see things in action. Welcome to some first steps into the future ... Thanks to Hervey and Steve for starting with these WSE 2.0 implementations. Expect to see more, like MSMQ and the like.
Mike has been faster than me, this time ;-) He has a quite nice summary on what is new in ASMXv2 (seems based on my list ;-).
Expect an article from me with some background information and included samples on this very topic on a very prominent web site soon.
Mike Taulty ... wow. Great stuff on there. Ranges from .NET Fx to ASMX to WSE and back ... great.
A new article "What's new in WSDL 2.0" on XML.com.
The W3C's Web Services Description Working Group, part of the Web Services Activity, has defined a language for describing web services and the possible ways to interact with them. The WG published its WSDL 2.0 working drafts on 26 March 2004. This is a significant milestone in the progress of WSDL. In this article, I discuss the changes that were made to the WSDL 1.1 specification and other major improvements to the service description language.
My friend Yasser Shohoud and Matt Tavis will talk about the new Web services features to appear in .NET Framework 2.0 at TechEd US next week.
Please be sure: do not miss this one!
Yasser Shohoud, Software Legend, and I will be giving a talk at TechEd to introduce some our favorite new Web Services features to you at TechEd. The new talk (CTS201) is not even in the Session Catalog yet but never fear Yasser and I will be giving it. It is planned for the Friday at 2:45pm slot so mark your calendars!
We'll be covering Web Services, XmlSerialization and System.Net features to make your Whidbey Web Services faster, easier to write, more interoperable and more flexible. See you there!
And eventually you can expect something written about this very topic here ...
Check out the RD booth at TechEd 2004 in San Diego. Some very interesting things going on there ...! Scott Hanselmann will rock da house:
You'll want to stop by and see if you have the intellectual horsepower it takes to be the Apprentice.NET! The Winner will receive a ticket to the EXCLUSIVE INVITE ONLY .NET Influencer's Dinner and rub elbows with various .NET Illuminati. Truly a lifetime chance, and only possible to those with chops enough to be the Apprentice.NET.
For those of you who are more 'Survivor'-brute-force-scavenger-hunt types don't worry, we'll have RD Bingo for you to play. You'll have a card with the faces of Bloggers and RDs that you know and love. Get that individual to initial over their face. Getting Bingo (or Blackout Bingo) wins prizes (plus it forces you anti-social bastards to network!)
Unfortunately, I cannot make it to San Diego due to a customer event next week :-(
One more step into the right direction - interop at all layers ...
Today, at the Gartner Application Integration and Web Services Summit being held in Los Angeles, WS-I announced the availability of the WS-I Basic Security Profile Working Group Draft for public comment.
The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) today announced the availability of the WS-I Basic Security Profile Working Group Draft. When final, the Basic Security Profile will be a guide for the use of Web services security standards and technologies in the development of interoperable Web services. The WS-I Basic Security Profile Working Group Draft can be reviewed at www.ws-i.org, and feedback may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The WS-I Basic Security Profile Working Group has made this working draft public in order to solicit feedback from the Web services community, with the goal of ensuring the high quality and broad applicability of the profile,” said Paul Cotton, Chair of the WS-I Basic Security Profile Working Group. “The process of incorporating public feedback was critical to the success of the WS-I Basic Profile, and we anticipate the same benefits from this process.”
