  • 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: JavaOne 2005 Speaker Award

    I came back from vacation today to find I had won a "JavaOne 2005 Speaker Award" for being in the top 20 of speakers at JavaOne this year :-). Here's a list of the top 20 sessions, and if you'd like to watch the session (I co-presented with Raghavan Srinivas from Sun), you can find it here .
  • Blog Post: PDC Debrief

    Kirill has a great debrief of our Web Services interoperability session at PDC last month. Also, you may want to checkout the interoperability plugfest that his group is running.
  • Blog Post: PDC Next Week!

    Well, it's been a while since I posted. Instead of making excuses about lavish vacations (of which there are none!), I thought I would instead tell you about PDC next week in LA: If you've been following the current agenda of sessions, I don't have to tell you that PDC looks awesome this year....
  • 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: Christian releases WSCF 0.5

    As Christian mentions in his recent blog post , v0.5 of WSCF ( the tool for contract first Web Services development) is now out. This is also accompanied by a very thorough walkthrough of how the tool can be used. Somewhat coincidentally, I met Christian on Saturday while presenting at TechEd 2005...
  • 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...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft at JavaOne

    As you may have read from TheServerSide's post or through other articles, Microsoft will be attending JavaOne this year in San Francisco. 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: WS-Security Interop using WSE 2.0 and Sun JWSDP 1.5

    An update to my WS-Security interop series got posted today. This article shows WS-Security interoperability (using X.509 certs) between WSE 2.0 and Sun's JWSDP (Java Web Services Developer Pack) 1.5.
  • Blog Post: WS-RM being submitted to OASIS

    This is very exciting - today, BEA, IBM, Microsoft and TIBCO announced that they will be submitting the WS-RM specification to OASIS for standardization. Congratulations to everyone involved in this especially Jorgen for driving the WS-* workshop process.
  • Blog Post: Kirill is Blogging!

    Kirill is blogging. Here he shares some great information on WS-Security interop between WSE 2.0 SP3 and IBM WebSphere 6.0...
  • Blog Post: Corrupted Web Casts are Fixed!

    The corrupted Web Services Interoperability Web Casts (listed in this post ) have now been fixed! Please do let me know if you still have any problems with these...

    Here's a new MSDN article and sample code to demonstrate WS-Security interoperability between WSE 2.0 and Systinet Server 5.0 for Java. You can also watch a Webcast on this subject on this page.
  • Blog Post: Malaysia Architecture Symposium

    Yesterday I had the opportunity to host an Architecture Symposium at our Microsoft office in Malaysia, the topic being Web Services Interoperability. Despite a few demo glitches (including a fire alarm announcement in the middle<g>), the turnout and response was fantastic. Thanks to all who came...
  • Blog Post: Asia Tour Update

    I'm currently in Malaysia, preparing to present at an Architecture Symposium on Web Services Interoperability. I'm planning a very interactive, demo-led session to show exactly what can be done today including basic Web Services Interop, integration of Web Services with mainframes, generating an Office...
  • Blog Post: Running JWSDP 1.5 Interop sample on J2SE 5.0

    If you've recently downloaded my JWSDP 1.5 interoperability sample and tried to run the Java portion on J2SE 5.0 you may have experienced some "unable to decrypt message" errors. To fix this, adjust your java.security file to read as follows: security.provider.1=sun.security.provider.Sun security.provider...
  • Blog Post: Corrupted Web Casts

    A couple of people have written to me now, having trouble viewing two the Web casts listed on this page (and also through Interoperability month): * WS-Security Interoperability between WSE 2.0 and BEA WebLogic 8.1.3 * Web Services Interoperability between Apache Axis 1.2 RC2 client and Microsoft .NET...
  • Blog Post: Steve Maine on Isomorphism

    I'm a little late catching up with some blog reading but (if you haven't seen it already) here is a nice post from Steve Maine on Isomorphism. I especially like the metaphor when used with the REST example at the end of the article.
  • 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...
