Preview of JWSDP 2.0
By sandoz on Jan 10, 2006
A preview of the JWSDP 2.0 was released right at the end of last year.
I think JWSDP 2.0 represents a major improvement for Web services in Java. JAX-WS 2.0 (previously JAX-RPC) now makes use of JAXB 2.0 for data binding, JAX-WS 2.0 has much better support for REST-based Web services (see sample), and there are many security features enhanced security features with XWSS 2.0. True to the spirit of the JWSDP it includes an experimental release of Java API for XML Web Services Addressing.
Oh, i nearly forgot! JAX-WS 2.0 also supports Fast Infoset, but for some reason the manual link from the release notes is not valid (enabling Fast Infoset JAX-WS is very similar to JAX-RPC but the property names have changed). I will try to get that changed.

A temporary link to manual can be found here. It should be updated on the web site fairly soon i hope.
