Whats coming up with JAXWS 2.0.1

Posted by vivekp on August 2, 2006 at 4:09 PM PDT

So what's keeping the JAXWS team busy these days? Well, we have been working on JAXWS 2.0.1 for improved performance and making it pluggable. This required
re-architecting the runtime significantly. The new architecture is based on key
abstractions such as Pipe and Message. Each Pipe works on the
Message and gives it to the next or previous Pipe in the chain.

This allows plugging in features such as WS-Reliable Messaging, WS-Security,
WS-Metadata Exchange etc. One can also write custom transport and binding.
wsit a.k.a. Project Tango uses this
architecture to plug-in support for WS-Security, WS-Trust, WS-Reliable Messaging
etc.

Here are the new things that JAXWS 2.0.1 brings in,

  • Better Performance. The numbers are showing really good improvement, we
    will post these in latter post
  • New Architecture Plugging in transport. Oleksiy has

    implemented
    the JMS
    and TCP transports using this new architecture
  • Custom message processing using Pipe

We are working to make it stable and feature complete with respect to our
previous release JAXWS 2.0 FCS. The nightly

bits
are regularly posted and soon we will be posting a stable release.
Try out the
