This series describes how to use the IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Version 6.1 Feature Pack for Web Services Service Endpoint Interface samples to achieve interoperability with Microsoft Windows™ Communication Foundation. Part 2 shows you how to configure and test WS-Security interoperability.
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 3.0 (WCF) implementations. The articles will provide an explanation of 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.
Part 2 describes how to:
- Configure a custom WebSphere WS-Security policy set and binding
- Configure WS-Security in a WCF customBinding
- Test WS-Security interoperability between WebSphere and WCF
Future articles in the series will focus on topics such as interoperability between the Feature Pack for Web Services and WCF using 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 in Achieving Web services interoperability between the WebSphere Web Services Feature Pack and Windows Communication Foundation, Part 1, but will focus exclusively on the configurations for interoperability.
