WS-1 Ensuring Web Services Interoperability

CHRIS FERRIS, IBM

Tuesday, February 15, 2005 9:00 A.M.-9:50 A.M.

Despite the open industry standards that underlie Web services, interoperability has been a key challenge for vendors and customers implementing Web services. One reason for this is that the relevant industry standards often permit multiple acceptable implementation alternatives. This presentation will discuss in detail the challenge of Web services interoperability and the role played by the premier industry organization formed to address it, the Web Services Interoperability Organization. In particular, the presentation will cover the critical importance of WS-I profiles to an organization’s Web services initiatives, including the manner in which companies can put WS-I profiles immediately to work.

BIO: Chris Ferris is chair of the WS-I Basic Profile Working Group and a senior technical staff member with IBM’s Emerging Technology Group. He has been actively engaged in open standards development for XML and Web services since 1999 and is an elected member of the OASIS Technical Advisory Board.

WS-2 Web Services Standards: Going Behind the Mask

GLEN DANIELS, SONIC SOFTWARE

Tuesday, February 15, 2005 10:00 A.M.-10:50 A.M.

Web services and service-oriented architectures (SOAs) are emerging as an integral part of the enterprise IT strategy. According to a recent IDC study, Web services–related revenue is expected to triple from $1.1 billion worldwide in 2003, to $3.4 billion in 2004, and $16.6 billion by 2008. As SOAs proliferate and the number of Web services added to them increases, standards will play an increasingly significant role. This session will look at the state of key Web services standards such as WS-Choreography, WS-Reliability and WS-ReliableMessaging, SOAP/MTOM/XOP, WSDL, XPath, XQuery, and WS-Notification as well as related Java standards and open source efforts. It will also look at the organizational impact of standards adoption in the industry.

Tuesday, February 15, 2005 3:00 P.M.-3:50 P.M.

WS-3 The XML Data Challenge

NANCY VODICKA, DATADIRECT TECHNOLOGIES

Tuesday, February 15, 2005 4:00 P.M.-4:50 P.M.

Most businesses store and query data with relational databases but need to use Extensible Markup Language (XML) to exchange and display data on the Web and with vendors and partners. As a result, programmers need to deal with both relational and XML data, often at the same time. Emerging standards such as XQuery, XQJ, and SQL/XML, promise to revolutionize data exchange and the ways applications are developed, deployed, and utilized. Learn the key facts about these standards, including what they mean, when they will be available, and what you, the developer, can do to prepare.

BIO: As the XML Product Manager at DataDirect Technologies, Nancy Vodicka is responsible for DataDirect Connect for SQL/XML, a database-independent SQL/XML implementation that is currently shipping, and DataDirect XQuery, a database-independent XQuery implementation that is currently in development.

WS-4 How To Bulletproof Your Web Services

DAVID MCCAWS, PARASOFT

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 9:00 A.M.-9:50 A.M.

Web services are gaining industry-wide acceptance and usage and are moving from proof-of-concept deployments to actual usage in mission-critical enterprise applications. Web services range from major services such as storage management and customer relationship management to much more limited services such as furnishing stock quotes or providing weather information. As companies and consumers begin to rely more and more on Web services, the need for developing reliable, high-quality Web services is even stronger. This session will explain issues specific to Web services and will illustrate solid engineering and testing practices required to ensure complete Web service functionality, interoperability, and security. Whether creating Web services from scratch or integrating a legacy back-end server via Web services, the practices and principles outlined in this session will be of great benefit.

WS-5 The Role of Policy in Web Services Integration–It’s More Than Just Security

TOUFIC BOUBEZ, LAYER 7 TECHNOLOGIES

Wedneday, February 16, 2005 10:00 A.M.-10:50 A.M.

Too often today the preferences, terms, and conditions describing how a Web service behaves when discovered and invoked is programmed right into the business logic. Hard-coding this behavior logic however introduces cost, complexity, and rigidity into a Web services architecture. A better approach is to abstract a Web services usage “policy” out of code where this metadata can be managed as need be. This session introduces the concept of Web Services Policy and describes how the construct can be used to implement a more customized and versatile Web service infrastructure.

BIO: Toufic Boubez is a well-respected and renowned Web services visionary. Prior to cofounding Layer 7 Technologies, Toufic was the chief Web services architect for IBM’s Software Group and drove their early XML and Web services strategies.

He is an author of many publications and his most recent book is the top-selling Building Web Services with Java: Making Sense of XML, SOAP,WSDL ,and UDDI.

WS-6 B2B Policy Enforcement: The Third Rail of SOA Implementation

ALISTAIR FARQUHARSON, DIGITAL EVOLUTION

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 4:00 P.M.-4:50 P.M.

One of the great benefits of a service-oriented architecture is the ability it gives you to extend programmatic, integration capabilities to business partners. Going beyond simple sharing of data with partners, SOA enables true B2B application integration. At the same time, this capability creates a vexing security policy enforcement dilemma. How can you be sure that a user from a partner organization is actually authorized to integrate with your applications? How can you authenticate that user? Do you even want that headache in the first place? This session will discuss the issues that arise in B2B security policy enforcement and explore several proven approaches to solving the problem. In particular, it will focus on the emerging technology of XML Virtual Private Networks (XML-VPNs) and their potential to mitigate security policy enforcement issues in B2B SOA implementations.

BIO: Alistair Farquharson is the CTO of Digital Evolution, where he spearheads product development and provides thought leadership to enterprise customers implementing Web services. His skills span many industries and include designing and implementing system architectures, as well as spearheading initiatives such as development/ team lead.

WS-7 Driving SOA Governance

BRENT CARLSON, LOGICLIBRARY

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 5:00 P.M.-5:50 P.M.

In the past year, Web services and service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have become mainstream because of their ability to provide business agility and flexibility through integration, productivity, and reuse. With SOA enablement on the rise, IT groups must address SOA governance as a means of controlling what and how services located within an SOA are deployed. This session will discuss SOA governance, specifically how an organization can manage and control assets and artifacts located within an enterprise, while ensuring that deployed assets meet an organization’s business and technical architectural standards. It will also outline governance best practices such as monitoring the UDDI publish process in order to seamlessly tie together the development and operational views of Web services within the enterprise.

BIO: Brent Carlson drives the development and delivery of LogicLibrary’s products. He is a 17-year veteran of IBM, where he served as lead architect for the WebSphere Business Components project and held numerous leadership roles on the “IBM San Francisco Project.” He is a member of the Eclipse Board of Stewards and a BEA Regional Director.

WS-8 SOA: From Pattern to Production

DAVID CHAPPELL, SONIC SOFTWARE

Thursday, February 17, 2005 9:00 A.M.-9:50 A.M.

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) represents the opportunity to achieve broad-scale interoperability, while providing the flexibility required to continually adapt technology to business requirements. No small feat, particularly when one considers the extent and complexity of today’s IT environments. As both a technology concept and IT discipline, the challenge inherent in SOAs is maintaining the right architectural approach. If all services in an SOA are treated as interdependent point-to-point interfaces, then the complexity of implementing and maintaining them in this spaghetti-like architecture becomes enormous. The enterprise service bus (ESB) has emerged as one of the first true SOA product offerings, bringing SOA from pattern to production. ESBs provide a framework for building and deploying an event-driven, enterprise SOA and accommodates the configuration, hosting, and management of integration components as services across the business.

BIO: VP and chief technology evangelist for Sonic Software, Dave Chappell has over 18 years of experience in the software industry covering a broad range of roles including R&D, codeslinger, sales, support, and marketing. He also has extensive experience in distributed computing, including message-oriented middleware, CORBA, COM, and Web application server infrastructure.

SAMEER TYAGI, SUN MICROSYSTEMS

Thursday, Febuary 17, 2005 10:00 A.M.-10:50 A.M.

Web services facilitate application-to-application integration and interoperability across different platforms. However, critics usually point to an inefficient processing model and bandwidth requirements for developing Web services. This is often cited as a reason why Web services cannot perform and scale well in production environments. This session takes a detailed look at performance and scalability issues around Web services in the real world, as well as strategies that architects and developers can adopt to mitigate such risks in these applications. Some analytical and modeling strategies that enable acceptable application performance will also be covered.

BIO: Sameer Tyagi works as a senior Java architect with Sun Microsystems. He remains focused on architecture, design, and implementation of large-scale enterprise applications with Java technology. His publications include industry periodicals and books on Java and J2EE technologies including Java Web Services Architecture.

WS-10 So You Want an SOA: Best Practices for Migrating Toward Service Orientation in the Enterprise

ERIC NEWCOMER, IONA

Thursday, Febuary 17, 2005 3:00 P.M.-3:50 P.M.

Replacing complex, monolithic applications with nimble applications built from exposed services promises increased developer productivity, greater flexibility, and ultimately reduced cost. The adoption of Web services and SOA can also remove a significant level of complexity and integration problems from enterprise application development projects. But, as with any large-scale project, IT departments must have the right plan and the right resources in place to ensure a successful transformation of their computing infrastructure. This article will explore what IT organizations need to know to be successful in their attempts to migrate the enterprise to a service-oriented architecture.

BIO: In the role of chief technology officer at IONA, Eric Newcomer is responsible for IONA’s technology roadmap and the direction of IONA’s e-business platforms as relates to standards adoption, architecture, and product design.

WS-11 Four Abilities SOA Will Lack Without a Registry

LUC CLEMENT, SYSTINET

Thursday, February 17, 2005 4:00 P.M.-4:50 P.M.

A service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the design blueprint for seamless connectivity between business processes and IT infrastructure, enabling innovation and improving productivity. SOA provides the most efficient, standard way to dynamically interoperate with any customer, supplier, product or employee. SOA makes integration intrinsic. Web services are the foundation building blocks of an SOA, and they are already proliferating inside most enterprises. In an SOA, Web services become business services with the ability to perform a particular function or access data dynamically. This presentation will discuss the four abilities that a registry provides for an SOA.

BIO: Luc Clement is director of product marketing, SOA Registry for Systinet. He is also cochair for the UDDI Specification Technical Committee. Formerly Microsoft UDDI Program Manager, Luc is well known in the UDDI community and has been heavily involved with the UDDI specification for several years.

WSS-1 Identity in SOA

SEKHAR SARUKKAI, OBLIX

Tuesday, February 15, 2005 9:00 A.M.–9:50 A.M.

The mainstreaming of SOAs requires a more general approach to the notion of identities–beyond simply central management of people identities and into the realm of managing applications, devices, and other identities that represent entities that are first-class participants in this application network while also providing this as a pluggable service into the larger enterprise SOA. Enterprises should view identity as a service that is ubiquitously available and is a shared infrastructure service necessary for application networking, rather than as being managed by a server, such as an Authentication or Access server. While it makes architectural sense to consider an Identity service, there are business and related drivers that may force the need to deploy such an architecture.

BIO: Sekhar Sarukkai is currently a technical architect at Oblix. He was the original founder and CTO of Confluent Software, a leading Web services management company, which was acquired by Oblix in 2004. He holds a PhD in computer science from Indiana University.

WSS-2 Securing Web Services with WS-Security

WSS-3 Anatomy of a Web Services Attack

MAMOON YUNUS, FORUM SYSTEMS

Tuesday, February 15, 2005 4:00 P.M.-4:50 P.M.

A broad range of new security threats is facing enterprises implementing XML Web services, leaving the enterprises open to financial risks, loss of property, and tarnished reputations. The basic rules of security–authentication, authorization, and auditing–no longer provide adequate security in the new world of straight-through processing paths into mission-critical systems. What’s worse, WSDL documents provide a guide book to security exposure. Most attacks on traditional Web-based applications exploit weaknesses in HTML-enabled custom, or packaged, applications. However, hackers and other malicious users are quickly uncovering new techniques at the SOAP/XML data level that bypass HTML and target weaknesses in Web services programming, technology, and architecture. This session will outline the innovative techniques that hackers use to map out the vulnerabilities of an organization’s network, and how Web server security must now complement Web services security in order to provide an adequate defense.

BIO: Mamoon Yunus, CTO of Forum Systems, was previously a global systems engineer for webMethods, where he developed business integration strategy and architecture for Global 2000 companies. He is an industry-honored CTO in advanced technological solutions for enterprise customers.

WSS-4 Using Mobile Phones as an SSO Authentication Device in SOA Solutions

DR. MICHAEL JUNTAO YUAN, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 9:00 A.M.-9:50 A.M.

Federated identity management across multiple single-sign-on domains is a major challenge for SOA-based solutions to fully realize its business potential. The traditional username/password combination is often too weak to protect the extremely sensitive single-sign-on credentials. The new-generation mobile phones could be used to identify and authorize users for SOA services. The device-based authentication scheme depends on not only “what you know” but also “what you own.” This session will discuss new advances in Java-based mobile devices to interoperate with Sun’s Liberty Alliance Services.

BIO: Dr. Michael Juntao Yuan is an author, developer, and software architect for end-to-end mobile software. He is a contributing editor to JDJ and a frequent contributor to many developer forums and publications. He is the author of two books. Michael has a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and teaches information systems at the college level.

WSS-5 Building Intelligent Enterprises with Novell’s Identity-Driven Computing

ASHISH LARIVEE, NOVELL

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 10:00 A.M.-10:50 A.M.

Companies are now facing complexities dealing with issues such as regulatory compliance and security while still providing for company-wide collaboration between employees, partners, and suppliers. Identity systems are becoming a crucial component of applications, enabling developers to take advantage of a new set of services that know who you are, where you are, what you are trying to do, and can adapt to your changing business needs. Identity-driven computing addresses these problems by applying best practices learned from Novell’s leadership in identity management for the management of people to all aspects of an enterprise, including servers, PCs, devices, applications, and even Web services. This presentation will outline identity-driven computing, describe the attributes of an identity-driven application, and discuss steps enterprises can take to make the transition to an identity-driven computing environment.

BIO: With more than nine years of experience in the software industry, Ashish Larivee has designed and developed many enterprise applications across a variety of platforms, including Microsoft, Lotus Notes/Domino, and J2EE.
