Hi
Does SUNOne use SOAP/UDDI/WSDL or something
different for web services? Thanks.

Sun seems to be thoroughly behind SOAP and WSDL, but I think they favor ebXML instead of UDDI. UDDI is not nearly as well nailed down as WSDL and SOAP.

Are there standard Java APIs for web services?
I know SUNOne has JAX* packages to support web services, but what about IBM, BEA, and others?
Do they go with SUNOne or they have their own
APIs? Thanks.

SunONE is just Sun's implementation. IBM, BEA, MS, etc. are pretty much sticking to the standardized protocols of SOAP and WSDL.
You can download Sun's Web services pack and get an implementation of these protocols that is fairly up to date.

This means Sun's JAX* APIs are useless if no one implements them. Even apache axis does not implement these APIs and they have mentioned on the axis website that implementing these APIs has low priority. If this keeps happening, where is standardization?

Chintan, which APIs are you talking about? Sun's "JAXP" APIs for XML parsers are widely accepted.

Sun has released "Java Web Services Developer Pack 1.0" just now. Check out the following link:

Bill,
I was talking about JAX* APIs other thanb JAXP. JAXM, JAXB, JAXR, JAX-RPC and SAAJ to be more precise. I have not seen these implemented yet, May be because they are too new and just recently finalized.

Well, you are right there, the JAXP APIs are well accepted but the others have a lot of competition - two different Apache projects for example, and LOTS of commercial projects such as GLUE (a well worked out one in my opinion.)

As far as I know the current Apache AXIS release(beta 2) uses the JAX-RPC api. Same with BEA WebLogic 7.0. However both of them implement a draft version (0.8) of the spec, as the final v1.0 of JAX-RPC was just released last week. So I guess it will be some time before the various app servers are fully compliant with the spec, but I believe that most of the big players (BEA, IBM, Oracle) will fully support/use it.
Keep in mind that things are still shaking out, and it will be a while before things become stable.

What about JAXM? Do other big players support
it? I think that JAXM is more mature than
JAX-RPC.
Anyone have any insights about the security
issues? How to use certificate with JAXM and
JAX-RPC?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
