I have a fairly critical question for our development team. We are working on a product that uses Microsoft's WS-* library: WSE 3.0 (I'm a long-time Java Dev, but recently have had to work on a .net project. What can you do...). Microsoft's library supports both the "http transport" for sending SOAP messages, and the "tcp transport." For those of you not aware of what the "tcp transport" is, if you set your WS-* library to use the TCP transport, you can create web services outside of a webserver. What happens is the web service will send and receive messages using the TCP protocol, instead of HTTP.
We are now checking the compatibility of using JbossWS with MS WSE 3.0. We will be using a JbossWS client to connect to MS WSE 3.0 server app using WS-Messaging and WS-Addressing. The compatibility of the two seems pretty close, but it doesn't seem like JbossWS supports the tcp transport. I checked around the documentation, the forum and the source itself and couldn't find anything (may have missed it). Does anyone know if it supports the TCP Transport?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advanced,
