Spring Web Services 1.0 Released

Java programmers who like the open source Spring Framework can develop applications for Web services using the newly released Spring Web Services 1.0 stack.

The stack works with common Web service technologies, such as plain old XML, the SOAP message transport envelope and Web Services Description Language (WSDL). WSDL is an XML document that describes a service, as well as its location and operations.

Spring Web Services 1.0 uses the contract-first development style only for publish-and-describe Web services. The contract-first approach delivers a WSDL contract first, and then Java is used as a means to implement that contract.

The contract-first approach avoids interoperability issues and simplifies development, according to an announcement issued by Interface21, which is the sustaining organization for the Spring Framework and a provider of open source software for enterprise applications.

The Spring Framework is a modular way of programming in Java, and Spring Web Services 1.0 also follows that approach, according to Rod Johnson, CEO of Interface21 and founder of the Spring Framework.

"With Spring Web Services 1.0, we have applied these same modular design concepts in order to deliver advanced integration and a more flexible, powerful programming model to developers working with sophisticated Web services," Johnson stated in a press release.

Spring Web Services 1.0 has the following features: the ability to distribute XML requests to any object; XML API support; reuse of Spring application contexts; WS-security support; and integration with Spring Security.

Spring Web Services 1.0 is currently available for download here.
