Welcome to the Apache Scout Project!
While this effort can be considered a project in and of
itself it will have a dependency on the jUDDI Registry
project. This dependency is covered in the "RELATIONSHIP
WITH THE jUDDI PROJECT" section below.
The purpose of the JAXR specification is to give Java/J2EE
developers a common standard API to access various web
services registries. This is simiar in function to the way
the JDBC API provides a common API for accessing different
database products.
The JAXR specification describes two types of providers
each offerring different levels of support for interacting
with the two popular registry specifications in use today,
UDDI and ebXML.
A type 0 providers will offer support for accessing UDDI
registries and type 1 providers support access to both UDDI
AND ebXML registries. The goal of this project is to
implement a type 0 provider.
As described in the PROJECT GOALS section above, the
JAXR specification indicates that a type 0 provider is
used to support interaction with UDDI registries.
A large portion of the development effort for this
project will center around building a bridge between
the standard JAXR API interface (jaxr.jar) and a UDDI
client library such as UDDI4j.
This is where the depenedency on jUDDI comes into play.
It's a little known fact that jUDDI is not only a UDDI
Registry but can also act as a UDDI client.
Since the jUDDI Registry must have the ability to recieve
SOAP requests, deserialize them into Java objects and
then serialize and return SOAP responses we realized
that we could leverage this existing functionality to
quickly produce a UDDI client which we did.
A significant side-benefit of using the jUDDI client
in our JAXR provider is that any issues or bugs
discovered and fixed while using the jUDDI Proxy will
directly improve the quality of the jUDDI Registry.
Apache Scout is a maven project that is built using the
multiproject plugin. All dependencies are included or
are downloaded during the build. The quickest way to
start is, in the root directory, to type
mvn package
This will build all of the modules and install them in
your local maven repository.
To clean up a build, use
mvn clean
You'll find documentation for this project in the docs/
Also, read the RELEASE NOTES below in for details on the
current release.
Thanks from the Scout development team for downloading
the package; help us make it better by sending comments
