Web Services Stack Comparison

Guest Author
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
    and JAXB 2.0) is available as
    part of Java SE 6.
  2. If you download the latest GlassFish
    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
    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.
