Session Title: Tips and Techniques for Achieving Web Services Interoperability in Enterprise Applications
Session Abstract: Web services technology has the promise to provide a new level of interoperability between software applications. There is a rush to enable the products and applications with WSDL, SOAP, and UDDI capabilities. The Web Services Operability organization (WS-I) helps align different technologies to solve a single business problem. Although the WS-I lays down guidelines for web services interoperability across platforms, you need to consider certain aspects to ensure interoperability among web services providers and consumers.
Web services levels the interoperability field for products built on top of various technologies such as .NET and Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE). However, several details can pose obstacles in the path of interoperability for developing enterprise applications. This session covers some of the practical considerations for ensuring that your web service interoperates with other vendors’ client platforms. It also explains how the framework works.
This framework currently includes integration of the WS-I testing tools analyzer; monitor; and other well-known vendors’ client platforms, such as .NET, Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS), BEA, and Axis. Because the core engine of this framework runs on web services, users can test their endpoint remotely. This presentation is aimed at web services application developers who need to ensure interoperability between their service and other vendor clients.
The attendees are expected to have basic knowledge of web services, WSDL, and SOAP.

Opinion: decent presentation with some good tips, but too much time was spent demoing their interop tool, which can run a WS between any two application servers (Jboss, Weblogic, .NET, etc). Interesting, but I expected a more technical presentation. And it was getting late too!
