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.
