Subject [DISCUSS] how to handle ws_security/interopfest example
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2011 02:18:56 GMT
Hi Team,

Due to the Microsoft WCF security related server down for quite a  
while(probably over a year and I'm not sure if they can come back  
again), so the ws_security/interopfest examples shipped with kit   
doesn't work, I know that wssec10, wssec11, and wssc samples in  
samples/ws_security/interopfest have local server, but those local  
server also need download wsdl(I don't think we can ship those wsdls  
for license reason) during runtime from Microsoft WCF server, so if  
Microsoft WCF server is down, even local server doesn't work.

Currently we have a NOTES like
IMPORTANT NOTE:  since these samples rely on the external services  
that are provided
by Microsoft, they may or may not run or even build reliably if the  
services are down
or have been changed.

But if Microsoft WCF server never come back, it means those examples  
will never work again,  so it's not a good experience for end user.  
Should we contact Microsoft to ask the server back(:-))?   Should we  
remove those examples? Or should we just leave it as is?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Best Regards

Freeman Fang
