What is in JWSDP 1.4...

Posted by pelegri on May 27, 2004 at 2:03 PM PDT

Sun has announced that it will release JWSDP 1.4, the release 1.4 of the Java Web Services Developer Pack, in the very near future. The JWSDP groups together implementations of the key technologies in the areas of WS, XML and Web Applications. The actual pack is not out there yet, so don't look for it. And don't ask me why the PR went out ahead - I think somebody pushed the button a bit too early - but I know the details of the release as I am directly involved in it, and the PR is accurate - or at least, as accurate as PRs are :-)

Highlights include:

  • Support for WS-I's Basic Profile 1.1 with Attachments Profile 1.0
  • Support for OASIS's Web Services Security
  • Support for Sun's J2EE SDK, Sun's App Server and Web Server, and Apache's Tomcat
  • Updated JAXB and JAX-RPC, with bug fixes and performance improvements

The implementations of JAXB and JAX-RPC come straight from the jaxb and jax-rpc projects at Java.Net (the home for the developer community for the JWSDP is at Java.Net); the rest of the pieces come from elsewhere, including Sun-internal projects and Apache projects, everything integrated into the JWSDP download.

Stay tuned to this channel for an announcement of the actual release...
