  • Blog Post: How can you tell if a “Web Service” really is a Web Service?

    I was asked the question "How can you tell if a Web Service really is a Web Service?". If someone says that they have a Web Service (or more importantly is trying to sell you one!) what are the questions you should ask? I decided to put together this list of 10 things that point you in the right direction...

  • Blog Post: New Version of WSE Trace Tool

    I caught up with Benjamin Mitchell at TechEd Europe this year and we chatted briefly about WSE Trace - a small tool that I put together to help with viewing of traces generated by WSE . Given that there is still some interest in this I thought it was overdue for a little update. As a result, I...
  • Blog Post: MTOM Blogcast

    For those that didn't get to attend my session at JavaOne or TechEd Europe this year, here is a 5 minute "blog cast" of my MTOM interop demo - as I described in this earlier post . See how easy it is to use WSE 3.0 CTP and JAX-WS to send a binary attachment between Java and .NET. (...oh, and apologies...
  • Blog Post: Custom Exception Handling in Indigo

    One question I frequently get asked is "how do I handle exceptions over Web Services?" If you've ever tried passing exceptions using Web Services you'll likely be able to relate to the issues. The main problem is that the majority of toolkits don't have a great way to deserialize generated SOAP Faults...
  • Blog Post: How to do MTOM Interop

    In my JavaOne session yesterday I showed (what I believe to be) the first MTOM Interop demo between .NET and Java using publicly available toolkits. For those that don't know MTOM (Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism) is the new specification for optimizing the transmission and/or wire format...
  • Blog Post: Update from JavaOne

    Wow, here I am at JavaOne! It’s kind of odd... I’ve been doing Java development for a number of years now and I realize that this is my first visit to JavaOne. (What’s more ironic is that I had to wait to join Microsoft before I went ;-) So, what have we been up to - and what are we doing? Tomorrow...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft at TechEd also ;-)

    As I mentioned in my last post I'll be at JavaOne this year - but before that of course I'll be making my way down to TechEd! I'll be presenting on Saturday 4th for TechEd Academic at the University of Florida. I always enjoy the academic sessions as it helps put different perspectives on many topics...

We've been working with Sun over the past few months to put together an Interoperability track on the Tuesday of the conference. The track includes the following...
  • Blog Post: Channel9 Fun cont'd

    Did I also mention that the C9 demo mentioned in my last post shows BEA WebLogic (running on Red Hat Linux) creating a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet - using a technology called Office XML?
  • Blog Post: Channel9 Fun

    Here's a 34 minute video that Robert, Karsten and I put together for Channel 9 . In it I show how we can take a mainframe app, BEA WebLogic running on Red Hat and some Office XML, mix it together and front it with an interface written in Avalon.

  • Blog Post: When is Microsoft going to support JMS?

    Wow, if I had a dollar for every time I was asked this question...! A high number of posts on this subject have been circulating recently. I wanted to spend a couple of minutes to first define what JMS really is, and summarize the Interop options that exist today. I'd like to hear other people's thoughts...
  • Blog Post: Accessing MSMQ from Java

    Here's a nice post from Dino showing options (and alas a solution) for accessing MSMQ libraries from Java. I haven't tried the sample code yet, but it looks like a good approach.
  • Blog Post: Calling Web Services from "pre-.NET" Applications

    Here's are three articles that talk about developing and using Web Services for "pre-.NET" applications (e.g. a VB6 app or MFC COM control). Thanks to Brian Combs from PSS for forwarding to me: 1. Integrating Web Services and COM Components using the SOAP Toolkit - Article 2. Migrating from the Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: Getting Multiple Virtual PCs to Work Together

    I'm a big fan of using multple Microsoft Virtual PC images, especially for demos and development. My current machine has a second hard disk that is dedicated to images that I use for such work. One of the problems I've run into in the past is getting multiple Virtual PC instances to talk nicely together...
