Web Services Stack Comparison

Dims asked me to update the Web Services Stack matrix. I've worked in the Web services team at Sun since very beginning and have seen it growing to #1 toolkit and now supported natively in GlassFish. I was therefore tempted by the invitation and updated the matrix with GlassFish entries. Here are the key points I'd like to highlight:

  1. Most of the functionality in this matrix (for example JAX-WS 2.0 and JAXB 2.0) is available as part of Java SE 6.
  2. If you download the latest GlassFish v2 build, all the WS-\* components, exception WS-Atomic Transaction and WS-Coordination (coming soon), are integrated. WSDL 1.1 has always been part of JAX-WS and WS-Addressing is now part of JAX-WS 2.1. All other supported WS-\* components are developed on WSIT and very well tested to interoperate with Microsoft's .NET 3.0 runtime.
  3. Read about JMS transport support at jms-ws-transport.dev.java.net and TCP support here.
  4. Spring framework is supported in GlassFish as pointed out by Jerome. But the "Spring support" feature here means exposing Spring objects as Web services in GlassFish. Let me know if you are aware of any such effort and I'll be happy to update the matrix.
