Sun Microsystems Inc. released an upgrade to its Java Web Services Developer Pack (WSDP) 1.4 and the Sun Java Systems Application Server 7 Enterprise Edition.
Enhancements to the Java WSDP include support for WS-I's Basic Profile 1.1 and for a full implementation WS-Security, allowing for message-level security for SOAP. Developers now have access to XML digital signature (JSR105), XML message encryption and authentication for Web services applications. Developers have downloaded the Java WSDP more than 1.2 million times to build secure and interoperable Web services applications. Java WSDP also supports other Web services standards like SOAP, WSDL, UDDI and XML.
Sun Java System Application Server 7 EE, meanwhile, features a new reference architecture that scales to more than 100 CPUs, Sun said. It also promises five 9s availability.
It also extends support to Web servers like Apache Tomcat and Microsoft IIS and databases from Oracle, IBM, Sybase, PointBase and SQL Server.
The app server runs on numerous platforms including Solaris, Linux, HP-UX 11i and Windows.Click here for more information on the Java WSDP 1.4 and Sun Java System Application Server 7 EE.
