Web Services, Interoperability and STP
The recent Wall Street on Java[TM] Technology Conference in early February
2003, highlighted how Java technology is meeting the needs of the financial
Nigel Woodward, worldwide manager of capital markets and securities for
Sun, talked about straight-through processing, and Rich Green, vice
president, Sun Developer Tools and Java Software at Sun, discussed Java
technology and Web Services in the financial industry.
The 1.4 release of the Java[TM] 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE[TM])
will support the WS-I Basic Profile which will enable developers to build
end-to-end applications and services that can be used on any
Internet-enabled device -- any time, anywhere and by anyone.
By adding support for the Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I)
Basic Profile to the existing support for Web Services standards such as
WSDL, SOAP, ebXML and UDDI, J2EE 1.4 will provide both the Web Services
programming model and data model.
"Not everyone has the same systems on their desktops, in the middle-tier,
or in the data center," said Dennis MacNeil, senior product manager for
J2EE. "Given that fact, Java technology's Write Once, Run Anywhere[TM]
capacities enable disparate systems to link together."

version of this article.
