SO : Andrew
would be at the JavaONE 2005 conference presenting on :
Java™ and .NET are the predominant platforms for new software development.
Many developers need a good understanding of the architectures of both platforms in general and how they interoperate in particular. The standards and profiles based on XML
are the pillars for on-the-wire interoperability between the platforms.
This session features the visionaries and architects of the infrastructure of both platforms.
The WS-\* Web Services protocols
are interoperability protocols supported by the .NET platform
. The session starts with a brief walk through the standards for interoperability and touches upon the current support for these in both platforms. The session highlights some practical aspects of interoperability with some case studies and examples based on some existing and relatively newer standards. Finally, the session covers the future roadmap for interoperability between the two platforms.
This cutting-edge session is for developers and architects who need a technical overview of the practical aspects of interoperability. Hear straight from the architects designing the platforms for better interoperability. After attending this session, you should have a good understanding of on-the-wire interoperability, the support for it in both the current Java
platforms, and the efforts being made for the future.
This was just an FYI
for those that many that may forget this IMPORTANT
