New WSIT Plug-in coming

What does GlassFish v2 + NetBeans 5.5.1 IDE + WSIT plug-in
give you ?

If you read my blog, then you know the answer. If not, then this is a
recipe to create Interoperable (with Microsoft .NET 3.0 framework), Secure,
Reliable, and Transactional Web services easily in an intuitive manner.

If you use NetBeans Update Center to install the WSIT plug-in, then
the version released with WSIT Milestone 2 will be installed. The plug-in has
been updated since then (see below on how to install the updated plug-in) for
the reasons given below.

  • The plug-in is now a module suite consisting of two NetBeans modules (.nbm files), "Web
    Services Interoperability Technology Support" (WSIT Support) and
    "Web Services Interoperability Technology WSDL Extensions" (WSIT
    WSDL Extensions). The WSIT Support  module relies upon the WSIT WSDL
    Extensions module and allows a cleaner separation between the view (UI) and
    the model (WSDL). On the NetBeans Update Center (when they are available), these
    modules will be available as one download option keeping it simple for you.
  • Splitting the module into two allows modularization and only the required
    module to be loaded. 
  • The WSIT configuration (reached by clicking "Edit Web Service
    Attributes") is now more intuitive and extensible. Instead of splitting
    into two separate tabs (Messaging and Security), all the WSIT feature can be
    configured on one
    tab
    . This makes configuring multiple attributes such as security and
    reliability easy for and endpoint.

How to install the plug-in ?

  1. Although not required, it is recommended to uninstall the WSIT plug-in
    already installed. Go to Tools, Modules Manager
    menu and select the "Web Services Interoperability Technology
    Support" module and click on Uninstall. You may have to Sort the module names by Name
    to view the module.
  2. Download the updated
    modules
    .
  3. Click on Tools, Update Center menu and choose
    the "Install Manually Downloaded Modules
    (.nbm files)
    ". Follow rest of the process from here.
    The selected modules will look like this.
  4. Once installed, the modules will appear in Tools, Module Manager
    window as shown here

These new modules will replace the existing WSIT module when the the next
WSIT milestone is released.
