JavaOne 2006 - Project Tango Keynote Demo

Guest Author
We, at Sun Microsystems, have been working with Microsoft
for past several months on achieving interoperability between Java EE and .NET
technologies. Web Services
Interoperability Technology
(WSIT, a.k.a Project
) is Sun's Web services interoperability portal and provides all
information on that effort. Earlier yesterday, we gave a demonstration of our work so far in JavaOne
keynote. The main points from the talk is that Project
community and Windows
Communication Foundation
make Interoperability a Reality TODAY.

A video clip of the keynote demo is available here.
This clip starts with our keynote presentation where Nick Kassem explains the
business scenario which shows how Web services technologies enables integration
within and across business boundaries. Watch me explaining the development
environment to Jeff
from 3:46 to 4:48. All the tools and technologies used in the demo
are available today. And then Kirill
shows an interoperability demo between Infocard
and Sun's Secure Token Service. A picture is worth thousand words, here is a graphical representation of the

On the right, a Retail Quote Service (RQS), running in Sun-managed
environment, uses Wholesale Quote Service (WQS) to serve car quotes to Java and
WCF consumers shown on the bottom left. RQS also gets competitive bids from a
WQS running in a Microsoft managed environment. The clients talk to the RQS
secure MTOM, RQS talks to WQS using a Secure and Reliable Connection. Each
managed environment has it's own identity provider, also known as Secure Token
Service or STS in short. A trust relationship between the two environments is
enabled by a trust relationship between a priori trust relationship between STS.

We also plan to share the demo code in the near future and I'll post another
blog when it's available.
