Time to try JBossWS 4.0.0.CR1 !

JBossWS 4.0.0.CR1 has been released at the end of last week and is currently available for download in binary and source distributions. The release covers both Native and Apache CXF integration stacks and comes with a huge number of improvements, new features and fixes compared to the previous 3.4.1 final release. Have a look at the news page and the release notes [1][2] for further details.

The release is mainly meant for JBoss Application Server 7 and has been tested against AS 7.0.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2 and the current 7.1.0 snapshot. JBoss AS 6 support is still included, but might be removed by the time JBossWS 4.0.0 goes final (hopefully soon).

This is really the right time for giving JBossWS 4 a try before it goes final! Any feedback is welcome and might turn into last minute fixes for major issues, if any ;-)

Meanwhile we're working on passing webservices-related tests of the full JavaEE certification testsuite using JBoss AS 7; JBossWS 4.0.0 final is going to be shipped in the final AS 7.1.0 release.

Upcoming JBoss AS 7 event in Lugano (JUG)

Java User Group Lugano is organizing its 20th meeting at USI on November, 30th 2011. The event will be completely dedicated to JBoss Application Server 7.
I've been proposed to present there and I'm going to have two sessions, introducing JBoss AS 7 and providing some insights on its webservices subsystem.
