The IBM Web Services Toolkit allows one to build Web services
applications using SOAP, NASSL (a language for describing
operational characteristics of services), WDS (a language for 
describing non-operational characteristics of services), a
broker that allows publishing service descriptions (in terms
of NASSL and WDS documents) and querying for services, and
finally a client API for talking to the broker (via SOAP,
of course) as well as to other services. An updated version
of the NASSL toolkit to support dynamically setting the endpoint
has also been posted. The toolkit can be run on any Java platform
and pre-reqs IBM-SOAP 1.2 and Xerces 1.0.3. 

In addition to the toolkit a sample Web services application
"Gourmet-2-Go" is available. It uses mock-up services for
pricing groceries and delivering groceries to illustrate the
service-oriented model. This application is built using the
toolkit and also includes a nifty visual event viewer gizmo
that makes it possible to "see" what's going on underneath
in terms of talking to the broker etc.. The application is
delivered as a pre-configured environment (it comes with
config'ed versions of IBM-SOAP, Tomcat etc.) and requires
JDK 1.2 to run.

The toolkit and sample application are available at:
and the updated NASSL toolkit is available as before at the
SOAP4J downloads page:

We look forward to receiving comments!
