Java API for XML Registries JAXR
-*Anil Saldhana *
JAXR (JSR 93) is a standard API to access XML registries. It can be used to access registries like UDDI and ebXML.
JAXR and J2EE
J2EE 1.4 requires vendors to support JAXR. Infact, the Compatibility Test Suite for J2EE 1.4 compliance has a lot of tests for Jaxr.
JAXR and JBoss
JBoss 4.0.2 has Apache jUDDI and Apache Scout (JAXR Implementation) integrated, that passes the TCK for JAXR (as part of the J2EE 1.4 TCK).
JBoss 4.0 and 4.0.1 has Jaxr support with:
Integrated open source ebxml registry (ebxmlrr). (NOTE Removed in 4.0.2)
Jaxr API implementation.
JBoss 5.0 will have Jaxr support with:
Integrated Apache jUDDI Registry.
JAXR in JBoss Tutorial
Even though we have integrated jUDDI as the UDDI registry, you should direct jUDDI specific questions to Apache jUDDI mailing list. JBoss is interested in providing JAXR compliance as
part of J2EE 1.4 certification.
