JAX-WSA is now all green!
This morning W3C WS-Addressing
testing task force spent hours to interoperate on WS-Addressing CR
test cases. Well, this morning was pretty much the grand finale but we've
for the past few months on testing. And finally we achieved a darn good test
report few hours ago.
I represented Sun for the interop using JAX-WSA
APIs and implementation
and achieved 100% interoperability. That means all the vendors who had a
WS-Addressing client (IBM, JBoss,
were able to invoke Sun endpoints on all the required features. And Sun was able
to invoke all the endpoints published (IBM, JBoss,
Apache Axis) for the required features.
And invoking is just an understatement, since the report follows a rigorous
XPath-based check on request and response messages, ensures all the messages (4
of them) are received for a non-anonymous ReplyTo, checks the reference
parameters in request and response, defaulting of FaultTo and all sort of features.
All the assertions applied to each test case are documented if you click on the
link for each test case.
charter required to demonstrate four interoperable implementations so that
the specification can be moved to Proposed
Recommendation (PR). Now that the WG has demonstrated that, that's one less
hurdle to move to PR and thus soon Recommendation.
Thanks to Paul Downey, Jonathan
Marsh, David Illsley, Davanum
Srinivas (aka Dims), Mike
Vernal, Glen Daniels, Kevin
Conner and all others involved for making it through. We resolved through all
the red squares that we were getting in the initial
stages and converted them to green after fixing bugs in test cases,
supported assertions and our implementation. And thus "Green is
