    1st Presentation: Getting Security to the Table for Web Services Development

    Presentation Summary: This presentation will address best practices in pre-empting Web service vulnerabilities by leveraging an enterprise's Web services security knowledge throughout the development, assurance, and deployment audit phases of a Web services project lifecycle. A discussion of the suggested test and verification technology will be presented, including the manner in which this technology should support both the use of appropriate Web services security standards and best-practice policies (industry and internally developed) for developing Web services.

    Adoption of Web services as the preferred architecture for publishing enterprise services puts an enormous new burden upon developers, testers and compliance auditors with limited security expertise. Particular attention needs to be paid to the impact on development best practices and enterprise security policies. Specifically, appropriate exchange mechanisms for Web services descriptions' test profiles, requests, and responses will be considered, especially in the context of one team building Web services code and another providing security expertise.

    2nd Presentation: Building Reliable, Conversational Web Services with BEA WebLogic 9.0 (codename Diablo)

    Building reliable, conversational, and asynchronous messaging at the protocol level enables the next generation of interoperable web services that are long running and loosely coupled. Traditionally web services have been synchronous. This talk covers how to deliver loosely coupled, message-driven architectures that require core support at the SOAP infrastructure level. We present an architecture, design and annotation-based programming model that enable you to build reliable, conversational, and asynchronous web services at the application level. We discuss the various web services standards involved, and describe the challenges facing infrastructure at this level. At the end of the talk, we will show an application that demonstrates asynchonrous messaging using the constructs covered in the talk.
