New WSIT Plug-in coming

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 ?
- If a WSIT plugin is already installed, it is recommended to uninstall it. Go to
Modules Managermenu 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.
- Download the updated modules.
- Click on
Update Centermenu and choose the "Install Manually Downloaded Modules (.nbm files) ". Follow rest of the process from here. The selected modules will look like this.
- Once installed, the modules will appear in Tools,
Module Managerwindow as shown here.
These new modules will replace the existing WSIT module when the the next WSIT milestone is released.
