Subject Re: [DISCUSS] how to handle ws_security/interopfest example
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2011 16:56:19 GMT

Colm and I were discussing this a bit yesterday as well.  I'm not really sure 
what to do.  :-(

One thought I had was that if we could somehow get the wsdl's (any Mac 
TimeMachine users that may have them from a previous build or something?) I 
could throw them up on my personal server for now.   Reconfigure the examples 
to then just use the local server.   That would work for WS-Sec, and WS-SC 
tests, but not the Trust due to the need for the MS STS.   With Colm's 
proposal this morning, we could have an STS as well.  

That said, the above is a bit of work and I'm not sure how worth it that would 
be at this point.  If we're going to to all that work, it's probably just 
better to create a couple new "simpler" samples that show the various security 
options.  For example, if we pull in the STS, a good example that uses that to 
show using SAML to secure a service or similar might be a bit more useful than 
the interopfest things that just test a bunch of policies.
