Subject [ANN] Neethi 2.0.5 & 3.0.0 released
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2011 19:31:19 GMT
The Apache Web Services team is pleased to announce the availability
of the Neethi 2.0.5 and 3.0.0 releases. They are available for
download at:


Apache Neethi provides general framework for the programmers to use WS
Policy. It is compliant with latest WS Policy specification which was
published in March 2006. This framework is specifically written to
enable the Apache Web services stack to use WS Policy as a way of
expressing it's requirements and capabilities.

Apache Neethi 2.0.5 Release Notes:

Contains the fix for :
* Removed unnecessary repository references from the POM file.
* OSGi manifest should be more usable in OSGi without requiring the
servicemix wrapper.
* Make sure that Neethi only uses Axiom classes that are part of the public API.

Apache Neethi 3.0.0 Release Notes:

This is a "major" upgrade to Neethi that completely revamps the Neethi
internals to make it more usable for projects that have varying
dependency requirements. The API impact is minimal. The major impact
from an API perspective is the upgrade to Java 5 typed collections as
well as the support for WS-Policy 1.5 "ignorable" attributes.

Major new features:
* Support for WS-Policy 1.5.  This includes the new ignorable
attribute. The Policy.intersect method has also been implemented to
support this.
* API changed to use Java 5 typed collections.  Thus, support for Java
1.4 has been dropped.
* AssertionBuilders can now be written that build assertions from DOM
or StAX in addition to the Axiom implementations.
* The PolicyEngine and AssertionBuilderFactory singletons have been
removed. PolicyEngine now wrappers a "PolicyBuilder" singleton, but
applications are recommended to create and configure their own
PolicyBuilder object based on their needs.
