JAX-WS is the foundation of WSIT (project Tango)

Many of you may have seen the following announcment from Sun yesteray about WSIT (project Tango): Sun and Microsoft Showcase Interoperability Between the Java Platform and .Net Framework at the 2006 JavaOne Conference: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance.

You may be wondering how does this relate to JAX-WS. I am pleased to announce that JAX-WS is the core component to WSIT. In fact, WSIT is really a set of extensions to JAX-WS. To support the WS-* technologies that are part of WSIT better and to improve performance, the JAX-WS RI has been rearchitected. At this time I can tell you that the the first nightly build of the rearchicted RI is now available for download. This is a an EA version and there are still some JAX-WS 2.0 functionality that we have not ported to the new architecture. You can download this nightly from the RI download page. This nightly build does not include the WSIT (WS-*) technologies at this time but that download should be available in the weeks to come.
