Just a quick note - FMW PS6 has been released. OWSM is part of the FMW release train. As was the case with the previous FMW Patchset release - this is a feature bearing release.
The OWSM PS6 documentation describes as part of what's new section an exhaustive list of features:The following new features and enhancements have been added to the current release of Oracle Web Services Manager:
In future blog posts I will post in more detail about some of the features - but in this blog post I wanted to highlight one particular features that I think customers are going to find very useful:
Securing REST services (a.k.a Servlet Application Security)
Customers can build REST services in one of two ways:
- As Servlet applications without using any REST technology stack
- Using REST stacks like Jersey JAX-RS
In PS6 - OWSM support's securing REST services built using either methodologies. So all the capabilities and power of OWSM to secure SOAP services can now be used for securing REST services.
Here is are some quick doc pointers:
Note: In this release OWSM does NOT SUPPORT securing REST clients - for example REST Clients built using the Jersey JAX-RS stack.
