Systinet Corp. Monday announced a new development tool for extending the Eclipse application development platform for building Web services.
Systinet Developer 5.5 is a free Eclipse-based download for creating, debugging, compliance testing and deploying Web services, said officials at Burlington, Mass.-based Systinet.
The new version of the tool is a companion product to the Systinet Server for Java 5.5, which is Systinets run-time environment.
Systinet Developer 5.5 supports the WS-ReliableMessaging specification for ensuring that messages are sent and received reliably. The tool also automatically checks to ensure that Web services comply with the Web Services Interoperability Organizations WS-I Basic Profile, the company said.
In addition, the tool enables developers to publish Web services to a UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration) Version 3 compliant registry, such as Systinets own Systinet Registry, the company said.
