As far as I know, JBoss AS 5.x is Java EE 5 compliant. I believe that the "standard" configuration supplied in 5.x is the one that passed the certification tests.
the 2007 whitepaper which states that JBossWS is not fully Java EE 5 compliant
Given that AS 5.0.0 was not released until the end of 2008 (Nov or Dec), it doesn't surprise me that a 2007 whitepaper would state such a thing.
Thanks for your response. While JBoss AS 5 is JEE5 compliant, do you happen to know if the same is true for JBossWS?
My main concern is portability for any web services I create in JBossWS should my company decide to change application servers in the future.
JBossWS provides the webservice features of JBossAS, which in turn is Java EE 5 compliant. So as long as you use the specs included in Java EE (jaxws for instance) you should not be concerned about portability.
Great, thanks Alessio.
