Feature Pack for Websphere improves interop with .NET

Back in June, IBM Announced the Feature Pack for Web Services for WebSphere Application Server V6.1, which adds new support for WS-* protocols into Websphere App Server. Find the announcement here.

In the announcement IBM stated that the feature pack

...extends the capabilities of Application Server V6.1 to enable Web Services messages to be sent asynchronously, reliably, and securely, focusing on interoperability with other vendors.

(The emphasis above is mine).  The list of WS-* protocols supported includes

  • WS-RM
  • WS-Addressing
  • MTOM
  • WS-SecureConversation

I haven't tested the feature pack for interop with the .NET Framework 3.0 and WCF, but that testing is now on my list.

anyone have any experiences that they'd like to report?  Issues they've uncovered or solved?
