Articles on Sun/Microsoft interoperability

Posted by arungupta on May 18, 2006 at 12:16 AM PDT

Here is the official and some related press release on the interoperability efforts happening
between Sun and Microsoft
for past few months:

  1. http://www.sun.com/smi/Press/sunflash/2006-05/sunflash.20060516.5.xml
  2. http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/060516/sftu095.html?.v=56
  3. http://www.ftponline.com/special/javaart/interop/

In a related article published here
in eweek, a quote from the article says "The
companies' cooperation will soon give developers freedom to work with Web
services partners using Microsoft's Windows Communication Foundation (formerly
"Indigo") or JAX-WSA (Java API for XML Web Services Addressing)."

Although I fully agree with Peter that this cooperation between the two
companies will provide flexibility to work with either of the framework. But
here WCF is incorrectly compared
to JAX-WSA. The latter provides an API
to enable WS-Addressing support in Java platform and is just one of the multiple
specifications supported by WSIT. Instead
WCF should be correctly compared to WSIT. I've already emailed a correction to
the editor and hopefully will hear back soon.
