Subject Re: [ATTN] WSS4J 1.6-alpha distribution
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2011 16:54:30 GMT
Thanks! Feel free to ask me any questions in terms of upgrading
Rampart to use WSS4J 1.6. You will see quite a lot of compilation
errors, but most are fairly obvious. There are some slightly tricky
changes in relation to code which calls WSSecSignature, which was
necessitated by the move to use the JSR-105 APIs for XML Digital
signature.

I'm just about to create a beta version, so any feedback you can give
me would be great. I'm open to some API tweaks after 1.6.0 goes out
for the first few versions, in case any changes I've made cause
serious problems for Rampart, or other third-party libraries.

Colm.
