Status report for the Web Services Project
Sandesha participated for WS-ReliableMessaging Workshop hosted by BEA Systems Inc, International Business Machines, Microsoft Corporation and TIBCO Software Inc, co-developers of the WS-ReliableMessaging specification. The workshop was a 2-day event on May 12 and 13th at BEA's San Francisco office.
The interop workshop is an ad-hoc, open forum for companies who have WS-ReliableMessaging implementations based on the WS-ReliableMessaging specification published March 2004, and who want to test their implementations with other companies' implementations.
Sandesha has passed several interop scenarios with other implementations at the workshop. We have also identified some problems with some of the scenarios and expecting to correct them soon.
Code Releases [since the last report]
jUDDI will be releasing v0.9rc1 sometime during the week of June 13th.
Axis C++ 1.2 alpha is released on 15th of June with several new features. Features include Transport layer plugability, Parser plugability, Improved Exception handling and soap fault mappings, Flexible configuration and Stub API improvements to customize SOAP message.
A jUDDI sub-project to build an implementation of the JAXR 1.0 specification has just started. We're planning to produce a level 0-compliant JAXR Provider (UDDI) now and look into a type 1-compliant (ebXML) at a later date.
Problems with committers, members, projects etc?
At the moment we have some requests from other participants to have an end point hosted so that they can test against Sandesha endpoint. We would like to know the possibilities of hosting Sandesha at Apache.
We have an offer to contribute Japanized contents of the Apache Axis site from a Japanese Axis committer. We would like to know the possibilities of publishing the contents on the Apache official site, like as W3C and WS-I are doing; http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Translation/Japanese http://www.ws-i.org/Profiles/Basic/2003-08/BasicProfile-1.0a-ja.html
