What's Going On with WSIT?

The Web Services Security feature of OpenSSO implements the Web Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT). WSIT is an open source implementation of the web services specifications (commonly referred to as WS-\*). The project was started by Sun Microsystems, and consists of Java API that allow developers to create web service clients and services that enables operations between the Java platform and clients and servers developed with the WS-\* specifications. WSIT provides implementations of the following specifications for interoperability with .NET 3.0.

  • WS-Metadata Exchange
  • WS-Transfer
  • WS-Reliable Messaging
  • WS-Reliable Messaging Policy
  • WS-Atomic Transaction
  • WS-Coordination
  • WS-Security 1.0 and 1.1
  • WS-Security Policy
  • WS-Trust
  • WS-Secure Conversation
  • WS-Policy
  • WS-Policy Attachment

While looking for information on WSIT, I found this great PDF file on developers.sun.com called the WSIT Tutorial. If you need to know what's going on with WSIT, this is the paper to read.

And if you just want to hear What's Going On by Marvin Gaye, this is the clip to click.

OpenSSO "uses" WSIT instead of "implementing" it :) Another useful white paper about WSIT is at:

Oy, technicalities. I did copy that sentence directly from an engineering doc though. ;> Thanks for the second link, Arun. I know I'm following it.
