J2EE Specs Seek To Align with Non-Java World

As IDN reported earlier, the final J2EE 1.4 spec will be tabled to help developers using SOAP, WSDL and XML make sure their code runs across Java, .Net and Windows/Unix. But, the longer-term impacts for the Java/J2EE developer may reach wider than you might think, and open the Java community to a wide array of not-Java-only technologies. Read IDN's interview with a key Java exec.

J2EE 1.4 Final Delayed To Support WS-I Interoperability

The release of the final J2EE 1.4 specification document will be delayed by several months to include the WS-I's Basic Profile for SOAP, WSDL and XML to ensoure interoperablity between Java and non-Java platforms. In an in-depth interview, hear how changes at the JCP will change the landscape for Java developers, and plans for making it easier to work with Windows and .Net projects.

WS-I Sets Basic Profile for Interoperable Web Services

The WS-I has released a working draft of its first Basic Profile document. It provides developers an exhaustive list of implementation guidelines for how to use SOAP, WSDL and XML Schema to help ensure projects will interoperate with other systems. IDN looks in-depth at these specs for messaging, service description, discovery and security in our Q&A with a key WS-I exec.

The 5 Biggest Myths about Developing Web Services

As 2003 proceeds, the trick for developers will be to tell the difference between myth and reality. In this special column for IDN from Bob Sutor, director of IBM's Web Services Strategy, Bob gives developers a perspective on how standards work being conducted by IBM, Microsoft, and others is designed to empower -- not confuse -- developers. Bob also helps de-FUD the topic of "What can be done now?"

Stage Set for Wireless, PDA Web Services Specs

After a feverish summer agenda, the SyncML group has pulled together a number of key specs and test results for setting standards for the "mobile extended enterprise." The work on mobile services interoperability and management wraps up just as SyncML joins the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), the newly created federation of mobile standards groups. See why the momentum will stay high for setting a new wave of standards for Java- and .NET-driven mobile/wireless web services.
