WSIT enabled webservice
i was thinking of developing a webservice using WSIT for my new project in the JES environment using Sun AS 8.1.
I wanted to know the compatibility of Spring ws with WSIT technologies and with AS 8.1.And regarding the liscensing part whether there are any constraints.

WSIT is bundled GlassFish V2 (Sun Java System Application Server 8.1). You can download GlassFish for free from http://glassfish.dev.java.net. It is also tested on Tomcat, works on Jetty  and Java SE and supported on JBoss .

Spring ws compatibility with WSIT
Is spring ws compatible with WSIT technologies and what abt its reliablity.

I'm not fully familiar with Spring Web services but my basic reading so far indicates that it does not follow the standard JAX-WS programming model. WSIT-enabled web services built upon the JAX-WS APIs & Annotations defined by JSR 224. Metro (JAX-WS + WSIT) provides secure, reliable, transactional and .NET 3.0 interoperable Web service.
You can read more about WSIT at http://wsit.dev.java.net/docs/tango-overview.pdf.

What will be the best ws-security implementation for both client and server env.Can u pls explain if you have implimented any of those..Abt their complexities... chances of failure and all those...

WSIT provides implementation of WS-Security 1.0 and 1.1, WS-Secure Conversation, WS-Trust and WS-Security Policy. This can be used both on client and service endpoint. And all of this is extensively tested to be interoperable with .NET 3.0.
I announced the availability of source code of a real-life interoperability scenario where Excel 2007 invokes a Secure and Reliable endpoint deployed on GlassFish at:
IMHO, WSIT provides the best and most comprehensive WS-Security implementation. I'll leave the decision upto you
