Interoperable Web Services & Netbeans
By Martin Grebac on May 16, 2006
Why now? Well, I am at Sun for 5 years, and all the time here I had a chance to work on really amazing and cool things. Current project gets even better: Project Tango.
Engineers in Sun working together with Microsoft engineers to make sure the web service stacks from both sides interoperate flawlessly, big number
of web services specs implemented on both sides, with really cool pluggable JAX-WS technologies and
architectures behind it. That's what WSIT (Web Service Interoperable Technologies) is all about.
And what's my role in all this? Tools enable technology. No change in here. From NetBeans side, I will make sure your NetBeans 5.5 (YES, Netbeans 5.5 Beta is out already!) installation gives you the most productivity when developing WSIT enabled web services. Check it out: http://websvc.netbeans.org/wsit/ and http://www.netbeans.org.
It's not just words, it's not just slideware, it's not just flash demos (even though you find all of these
visiting the sites above).
Ramesh Mandava (Ramesh.Mandava@Sun.COM) and Ana Lindstrom (Ana.Lindstrom-Tamer@Sun.COM) from the team, altogether with me - Martin Grebac (Martin.Grebac@Sun.COM), are giving everybody a chance to try it himself at JavaOne conference this year (http://java.sun.com/javaone/), in our Hands-on lab: Developing Interoperable Next Generation Web Services with Project GlassfishSM, Netbeans™ IDE & WSIT
Stay tuned! More to come!
