This article describes how to use the IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Version 6.1 Feature Pack for Web Services Service Endpoint Interface samples to demonstrate interoperability with Microsoft Windows™ Communication Foundation. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to achieve basic Web services interoperability for SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2, and WS-Addressing.
The WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 Feature Pack for Web Services includes a set of Java API for XML-Based Web Services (JAX-WS) samples that demonstrate simple message exchange patterns (MEPs) using both a synchronous and asynchronous programming model. The samples support SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2. Using these MEP samples composed with Web services standards such as WS-Addressing (WS-A), WS-Security, WS-Reliable Messaging (WS-RM), and WS-Secure Conversation (WS-SC), you can perform a broad range interoperability tests. These samples demonstrate the use of JavaBean artifacts, static service endpoints and proxy-based clients.
The purpose of this series of articles is to highlight protocol-level interoperability between the Feature Pack for Web Services and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) implementations. The articles explains the protocol-level interoperability configurations used during Feature Pack for Web Services interoperability testing. The key to protocol level interoperability between the Feature Pack for Web Services and WCF is first to understand the MEP that is used, and second to configure the correct composition of Web service standards using policy sets and WCF bindings.
This article focuses on setting up the test environment, running the Feature Pack for Web Services samples and the WCF samples, and basic SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2 and WS-Addressing configurations for interoperability. Future articles in the series will focus on topics such as interoperability between the Feature Pack for Web Services and WCF using WS-Security, WS-Secure Conversation, WS-Reliable Messaging and the composition of WS-Reliable Messaging with WS-Secure Conversation. These future articles will incorporate the test scenarios and MEPs described below, but will focus exclusively on the configurations for interoperability.
