    WS-Policy vs Switchyard Policies

    Gary Brown Master

      Hi

       

      Noticed some discussion on policies in switchyard config, but assume this does not cover WS-Policy?

       

      Alternatively, as jbossws-cxf supports WS-Policy, I assume that the soap component would be able to act upon a WSDL definition that included a policy?

       

      Regards

          Our main focus has been around allows the developer to express their policy requirements in an application, which is referred to as "intents" in the SCA Policy spec.  We follow the convention of using basic string literal values to identify these requirements.  At some point in the future, we may allow policySets to be expressed with an app using WS-Policy as the description.  I don't see this as a requirement for 1.0, however.

           

          In terms of jbossws-cxf supporting WS-Policy, it all depends on how that is actually configured.  If it's self-contained within the WSDL itself, then there's a chance it will work.  If it requires additional deployment metadata specific to JBossWS, then I can't say.
