GlassFish Web Services Stack Tango with JavaSE6

Duke Tango

The Web services stack in GlassFish V2 uses JAX-WS 2.1 and JAXB 2.1 as the core Web services platform. WSIT extends this core by providing an implementation of key WS-\* specifications. Since JavaSE 6 has Web services support through the JAX-WS 2.0 and JAXB 2.0 specifications, it allows to build basic Web services using only JavaSE 6 but does not have any of the WSIT capabilities. But now that's possible!

Fabian explained how a WSIT endpoint be easily deployed using the JAX-WS Endpoint API. In a follow up post, I provide a detailed writeup with complete working code.

GlassFish Web services stack "tango" nicely on Tomcat, Jetty and JavaSE 6.
