  • Blog Post: Geneva supports OASIS WS-Trust, SAML

    Last week at the PDC 2008, Microsoft released the public beta of “Geneva”. “Geneva” is three things: Geneva Server. This is a security token service (STS), as defined in the OASIS WS-Trust specification. This thing issues and transforms claims, manages user access, and enables automated federation...
  • Blog Post: Connect WebSphere and Java applications to SQL Server

    FYI: The MS JDBC Driver is completely tested by IBM for use with WebSphere App Server v6.1 and v7.0. From the IBM Announcement for WebSphere Application Server v7.0 : WebSphere Application Server V7.0 does not include the WebSphere Connect JDBC driver that had been provided in WebSphere Application Server...
  • Blog Post: Open Source and Interoperability

    Open. Source. Is. Not. Interoperability. Ted Neward is an entertaining and talented writer, not to mention a stand-up guy, and a first-rate technogeek. But that doesn't mean he is always right. I was just reading and old post of his which I missed during my unscheduled sabbatical, in which he writes...
  • Blog Post: Java/XML Binding Options? WebSphere prefers JAXB 2.0...

    I'm looking to put together more Java and .NET interop samples. If any of you have any particular requests, let me know. One of the key areas for interop I'm looking at is XML serialization. Today I was scanning the web looking for insight into the leading Java-to-XML binding frameworks. For those...
  • Blog Post: SOA Story featuring WebSphere and WCF Interop, and wow! Look at those prices!

    This is an older story, but you may have missed it. (I did!) Insurance provider Safeco initiated a SOA effort and within that, built a new application using WebSphere Process Server, ASP.NET, and WCF Services written in C#. The story was written up on infoq back in May, but it is still very current....
  • Blog Post: IBM WebSphere Registry/Repository and Interop with .NET, part 3

    Back in May, IBM had posted an article describing how to connect to its WebSphere Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) from .NET applications. A surprise to me. Not long ago I was huffing about lack interop on WSRR. I later amended my comments in a followup post , saying that IBM had documented a SOAP...

  • Blog Post: Improving WCF interop with Websphere/RAD by controlling WSDL Generation

    I wrote about Christian's foray into this area a while back . Now comes news that other people are confronting the same issue, but with Websphere or Rational App Developer. Here's the problem: WCF emits WSDL that is modular - the base WSDL file references other WSDLs and XSDs which are external. Christian...
  • Blog Post: Feature Pack for Websphere improves interop with .NET

    Back in June, IBM Announced the Feature Pack for Web Services for WebSphere Application Server V6.1 , which adds new support for WS-* protocols into Websphere App Server. Find the announcement here . In the announcement IBM stated that the feature pack ...extends the capabilities of Application...
  • Blog Post: Fact Check – IBM’s Steve Mills claims on MS and SOA

    We saw an article on CNET that included quotes from Steve Mills of IBM directly related to Interop, SOA and Microsoft. Since Interop is one of our passions, we thought it would be worthwhile to respond. Given that we are approaching an election here in the US, we are employing a CNN technique. Let's...
  • Blog Post: StockTrader - now with source code

    Last month I wrote about the .NET StockTrader app , an app that shows Interop between .NET/WCF services and services running under IBM WebSphere. The .NET source code is now available. Download it here . The main stocktrader page on MSDN will be updated with this link soon. Cheers! Update, 27...
  • Blog Post: IBM WebSphere Registry/Repository and Interop with .NET, part 2

    In a prior post , I said that there was no good interop story between .NET and the IBM WebSphere Registry and Repository (WSRR). I said this based on an examination of the WSRR documentation. IBM's product doc is available online and keeping to the IBM standard, is usually very thorough and clear. I...
  • Blog Post: Custom WCF Channel for IBM MQ

    IBM have shipped an early version of a Custom WCF Channel for MQ. The dev team in Hursley contacted me to solicit feedback. It's apparently pretty simple now, supporting only SOAP one-way messaging, but they say if there is sufficient interest and feedback, they will consider developing it further and...
  • Blog Post: What about this SCA thing?

    Ever heard of SCA ? Service Component Architecture? (Leave it to the English-speaking people to glom together 3 nouns and expect people to understand what that jumble of words is supposed to mean. In the glass-houses dept: shades of "Windows Communication Foundation." But I digress!). I've certainly...
  • Blog Post: .NET StockTrader shows Interop between WCF and WebSphere

    Customers looking to build distributed applications according to the principles of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) can use the new .NET StockTrader as a blueprint. This new sample/performance kit download includes full source code and a technical whitepaper that provides best-practices guidance for...
  • Blog Post: MS JDBC v1.1 is available

    In cased you missed this, in February Microsoft released v1.1 of the MS JDBC Driver for SQL 2005. The SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver is JDBC 3.0 compliant and runs on the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4 and later versions. It has been tested against all major application servers, including BEA WebLogic...
  • Blog Post: Websphere and .NET Interoperability Redbook from IBM: Be Careful!

    WebSphere and .NET Interoperability Redbook - be careful This Redbook from IBM, entitled "IBM WebSphere and Microsoft .NET Interoperability", was published in July 2006. I don't know where I was when it was published, but I missed it. Just getting around to looking at this document now. This is a...
  • Blog Post: Using AXIS within WebSphere = no support from IBM

    I did not realize this, but it stands to reason... IBM will not support the use of AXIS within WebSphere . To get AXIS to work within the WebSphere server, you need to remove the WebSphere-supplied webservices.jar, which will void your support warranty for WebSphere. The reason this is relevant...
  • Blog Post: .NET can connect to WebSphere's built-in JMS

    Phil Willoughby of IBM dropped me a line. Phil apparently works on the XMS stuff, I'm guessing out of IBM's Hursley lab. Phil sez: Re: http://blogs.msdn.com/dotnetinterop/archive/2005/11/04/488770.aspx FYI, XMS can be used to connect directly to the WebSphere App Server embedded JMS system....
  • Blog Post: .NET and WebSphere interop

    A New article posted on MSDN covering interop between .NET and WebSphere, over webservices. This one provides sample code for both .NET and WebSphere . There are instructions for what you need to download and install on the WebSphere side (including Eclipse), as well as all the steps necessary in the...
