Sun's training offering on developing secure Java Web services

You're back from JavaOne, with buzz words of cool new technologies you heard about still ringing in your ears. Here you are sitting at your desk, thinking about all the cool stuff you wish you could learn.

Well, there is HOPE.

Did you know that Sun Microsystems Inc. offers comprehensive training and certification for several Java technology components and the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE)?

What?

To add to the list of courses being offered in the Web Services learning path , is an offering on XML and Web Services security (DWS-4120-EE5) being offered in the Java EE track.

When?

Estimated to be on the training schedule mid June. Stay tuned!

Where?

Watch this space.

What will I learn?

As part of the course, you will learn to :

  • Identify the need to secure web services
  • List and explain the primary elements and concepts of application security
  • Outline the factors that must be considered when designing a web service security solution
  • Determine the issues and concerns related to securing web service interactions
  • Evaluate the tools and technologies available for securing a Java web service
  • Analyze the security requirements of web services
  • Identify the security challenges and threats in a web service application
  • Secure web services using application-layer, transport-layer security, and message-layer security
  • Secure web services using the message security providers available in the Sun Java System Application Server
  • Describe the concept of identity and the drivers behind identity management solutions
  • Explain the role of the Access Manager in securing web services
  • Illustrate identity management capabilities in the NetBeans environment
  • Secure web services using the Username token profile
  • Secure web services using SAML assertions and Liberty tokens
  • And if this isn't enough- there is another incentive as well. The course will also help in preparation towards the SCJDWS (Sun Certified Developer for Java Web Services) exam.

    The students perform the course lab exercises using the NetBeans 5.5 Enterprise Pack Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and using AppServer 9.0 U1.

    Cool stuff! Is there anything else you would want to learn?

Upcoming JUG talk on Glassfish

Just got to know that there is a Java User Groups (JUG) talk by Sun engineers in Google on April 17th. The topic?

It has to be Glassfish of course!

Oh, I wish I could be one of the speakers too... I wish I had known earlier... perhaps next time.

But... it doesn't cost a dime to attend!

I would do it - for the food, the networking, and to learn about glassfish :)

java.sun.com/webservices gets a facelift!

Java.sun.com's Webservices hub just got a facelift! The new look is much nicer in my opinion and easier to navigate compared to its predecessor.

If you have comments, suggestions, bug reports, patches, on any of the technologies, you can actually contribute and make a difference!!

XWSS adoption in the industry

It's always exciting to see XML and Web services security (also shipped in glassfish now) more widely used in the industry. Here's another success story of XWSS adoption.

Another highlight?

Glassfish goes to Harvard!
