This Should've been JAWS!

Sun has released the Java Web Services Developer Pack (WSDP) EA1 to provide access to early versions of the standard Java APIs for XML processing and Web Services being developed through the JCP process. The new release includes early releases of base XML technology (JAXP 1.2, including XML schema support), SOAP based RPC (JAX-RPC), SOAP-based messaging (JAXM), and registry client support (JAXR). It really should've been called JAWS (Java API for Web Services), though. Oh well, it's Sun's call.


What do you think: Java WSDP or JAWS?
