Microsoft makes Web services play

Microsoft is readying an upgrade of its security-focused WSE (Web Services Enhancements) kit and has released a preview geared for developers.

Due for general release by the end of this year, the tool for Visual Studio .Net users is intended to enable development of what Microsoft describes as "advanced Web services."

WSE 2.0 features security improvements and enables developers to build Web services that are compliant with a set of Web services specifications released by Microsoft and IBM, including WS-SecurityPolicy and WS-Addressing.

These specifications, which have not yet been submitted to an industry-standards organization, would receive a volume boost by developers who use Microsoft's kit.

"(WSE 2.0) is fully integrated with Visual Studio and basically provides additional libraries in the .Net Framework for doing security policy and SOAP messaging," said Rebecca Dias, product manager of advanced Web services at Microsoft.

Bill Evjen, technical director at Reuters in St. Louis and a WSE 2.0 user, said the software has enabled improved security for Web services communications with financial services clients.

"WSE enables our clients to use Web services in their enterprises in a more secure manner," Evjen said.

Looking to lure developers from the rival Java camp, Microsoft has also made available on its site a new version of JLCA (Java Language Conversion Assistant).

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
