Metro Hands-on Lab at JavaOne 2008
By ritzmann on Apr 17, 2008
The title of the lab is "Metro: Try Out Simple and Interoperable Web Services". Session ID is 3410. The lab takes place on Tuesday, 10:50 - 12:50. I don't know exactly what room it will be, please check the JavaOne program once you have registered. Here is the complete abstract:
Metro is a high-performance, extensible, easy-to-use web service stack. You can use it for every type of web service, from simple to reliable, secured, and transacted web services that interoperate with .NET services. Metro bundles stable versions of the JAX-WS (Java™ API for XML Web Services) reference implementation and WSIT (Web Services Interoperability Technology).
JAX-WS is a fundamental technology for developing SOAP-based and RESTful Java technology-based web services. WSIT enables secure, reliable interoperability between Java technology-based web services and Microsoft’s Windows Communication Foundation.
This Hands-on Lab starts by developing a simple Metro web service and showing how to enhance this web service with Metro features such as reliability and security. The next part of the lab enables a web service client with Metro security features and has it interoperate with the previously built service. The lab shows the ease of development the NetBeans™ 6.0 release provides for achieving this.
The lab uses the NetBeans 6.0 release to modify and configure both the web service and the client, using Sun’s GlassFish™ project application server as the container. The lab uses WS-Reliability and WS-Security as examples of Metro’s secure, reliable features.
The lab comprises the following sections:Introduction to Metro
- Develop and deploy a basic catalog web service to return a list of catalog items
- Test the web service, using the Tester application provided by the GlassFish project
- Enable reliability on the catalog web service, and examine the messages
- Develop and deploy a Metro client for the catalog web service, and configure the client for reliable access to the web service
- Enable security on the catalog web service, and examine the messages
- Configure the Metro client for the catalog web service (from the previous exercise) for secure access to the secure web service
Prerequisites: some understanding of Servlets, XML, and SOAP
