JBossWS 3.1.0.GA released

The first post on this blog is to announce the release of JBossWS 3.1.0.GA.
For those who are not familiar to the project, starting from major release 3, JBossWS provides an integration layer allowing users to leverage different webservice stacks (JBossWS-Native, Apache CXF and Metro) on JBossAS.

Probably the most important achievement in JBossWS 3.1.0.GA is the improvement in terms of JAX-WS 2.1 support, as that's now available cross-stack:
  • the 2.1 implementation has been completed in JBossWS-Native (CXF and Metro already support JAX-WS 2.1);
  • the wsconsume tool now supports target 2.1;
  • WebServiceContext now supports JAX-WS 2.1 specific methods with all stacks.
This means now users can really leverage JAX-WS 2.1 additions (EndpointReference, WebServiceFeature, etc.) on JBoss AS with every supported stacks. You all know how easy and handy is enabling WS-Addressing and MTOM/XOP encoding with @Addressing and @MTOM ;-)

Besides the JAX-WS 2.1 support, JBossWS 3.1.0.GA has further new features, improvements and bug fixes in each stack, please refer to the release notes:
The supported target containers for this release are JBoss 4.2.3.GA, JBoss 5.0.0.GA and JBoss 5.0.1.GA.

The binaries and sources, including the samples can be obtained here.

Installation instructions, quick start and user guides are available on the JBossWS mediawiki:
