Metro 2.2, JAXB 2.2.5, JAX-WS 2.2.6 Released!

I'm happy to announce we released Metro 2.2, including the JAXB 2.2.5 and JAX-WS 2.2.6 releases:
Metro: http://metro.java.net/2.2/
JAX-WS: http://jax-ws.java.net/2.2.6/
JAXB: http://jaxb.java.net/2.2.5/


The Metro 2.2 is aligned and integrated with GlassFish 3.1.2 release. Some feature highlights:


  • large number of bugfixes going into all codelines

  • including better alignment with Weblogic stack in JAX-WS area

  • both JAXB and JAX-WS apt tool usage (long time deprecated in JDK) has been replaced with JSR 269 Pluggable Annotation Processing API allowing JDK8 integration and removal of com.sun.mirror implementation from JDK

  • new Modular Databinding layer has been added to JAX-WS and exposed in Metro as well, which allows users to use e.g. Moxy JAXB implementation instead of the default JAXB RI for web service invocations

  • the JAX-WS Maven plugins have been updated to allow working with latest JAX-WS releases and enhanced with lots of new capabilities

  • documentation for all 3 components has been updated to docbook format which allowed the release documentation be present also in single HTML view and PDF formats

Slides from my Java EE Web Services talk at Java Day Russia, 2012, Sankt Petersburg

Hi, last week I gave "Java EE Web Services" talk at Java Day in Sankt Petersburg in Russia. In the audience there was about 150-200 people. I talked about both SOAP and REST, describing the styles and JavaEE offerings for each of them, specifically talking about the reference implementations covered by projects Metro and Jersey. Unfortunately even though this was my very first stay in Russia, I did not have time to do any sightseeings so maybe next time ;O). Anyway it was very nice talking to the interested crowd.
Here are the slides: Java EE Web Services (PDF).

Grails and web service development with Metro - little update

I've seen several comments where people had issues using the Metro plugin for Grails framework. I fixed the problems and updated installation instructions a bit, so if you use the latest plugin release (1.0.1), you shall be fine. I also updated the plugin to comply with Grails 1.0.3. Check it out at:

New features in Metro 1.3 with NetBeans 6.1

Couple of people asked about availability of the new features I described earlier. The bits there point to NetBeans 6.5 builds. Question is whether you can use the same bits for NetBeans 6.1?
Unfortunately the answer so far is no, it is not possible. However, come here for updates.

I've tried to keep the bits the same, but there has been a change in classpath apis which didn't allow me to produce the same artefacts for both 6.5 and 6.1 builds. There's also a WS server api redesign planned for 6.5. So, I'll try to provide the build, but we'll see.
