JAX-WSA 1.0 EA1 Release Notes

Last Modified: December 9th, 2005

What This Release Includes

This release implements JSR 261, the JavaTM API for XML Web Services Addressing (JAX-WSA) 1.0 specification. The current pre-release version of the JAX-WSA RI requires a special, modified version of the JAX-WS 2.0 libraries (.jar files). These special versions are included with this bundle.

Online Documentation

The documentation for JAX-WSA 1.0 as well as the sample applications will be periodically updated in the JAX-WSA project on java.net. Please refer to http://jax-wsa.dev.java.net for the latest documentation and samples.

Required Software

What's New in This Release

The Java API for XML Web Services Addressing 1.0 (JAX-WSA) specification [1] defines APIs and a framework to enable the transport neutral mechanisms to address Web services and messages. These mechanisms are defined by the W3C WS-Addressing Core 1.0 Candidate Recommendation, W3C WS-Addressing 1.0 - SOAP Binding Candidate Recommendation and W3C WS-Addressing 1.0 - WSDL Binding Working Draft specifications. The JAX-WSA specification and implementation align with the Java API for XML Web Services 2.0 (JAX-WS) to define these APIs and framework. Please reference the JAX-WSA 1.0 specification for a detailed description of the programming model and APIs.

Installation Instructions

The following applies to the JAX-WSA standalone bundles. If you have installed JAX-WSA as part of JWSDP 2.0, then installation is complete.

For a stand-alone JAX-WSA bundle, its component jars must first be installed to the Application Server in order to build and deploy a web service.  To do this, set AS_HOME to the installation directory of the Application Server. Next, you need to invoke the command ant install from within the root directory of the extracted bundle.  This will install the JAX-WSA binaries into the Application Server.
