These are some of the statistics of Sun's open-source
implementation of next generation Web services technologies that deliver
interoperability between Sun's Application
Server 9.1 PE
(part of GlassFish)
and Microsoft's Windows
Communication Foundation
(WCF, aka Indigo). This implementation is known as Web
Services Interoperability Technology
(WSIT) and is part of Project
Tango
. Sun delivers on the initial
promise
of facilitating interoperability with .NET platform by embracing and
open sourcing implementations of key WS-* specifications. Read more about the
various technologies involved here.

We, engineers in Sun, have been working directly with Microsoft engineers
ensuring out-of-the-box interoperability for WSIT artifacts with WCF. Read about
Sun's participation in previous plugfests (Nov
2005
and Mar
2006
).

NetBeans 5.5 IDE and documentation is released along with the source.
This facilitate users to download the WSIT bundle and try the pre-existing samples
or create new ones from scratch without remembering the exact syntax of config files
or any other option that might be required to configure the sample.

Everything mentioned above can be downloaded at wsit.dev.java.net.

Download it, try it and pretty soon you'll find yourself completely immersed.
And we do appreciate your feedback.
