You have built a Web service using Web Services Interoperability Technology [WSIT], or “Tango,” using a plug-in in NetBeans 5.5.1 and deploying on GlassFish v2. How easy is it to write to that protocol from the Visual Studio tool kit?
Sun’s Arun Gupta writes that it is not too straight forward today to use Visual Studio to write such a client to invoke such a Web service. He has posted a selection that highlights the steps required to do that at present. We suspect there is more to come…
Note that Sun earlier this month posted a 230-page PDF that serves as a very useful WSIT tutorial.
At heart, WSIT represents a joint Sun-Microsoft effort to enable interoperability between the Java platform and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). WSIT is an implementation of a number of open web services specifications to support message optimization, reliable messaging, and security, WSIT includes bootstrapping and configuration technology.
