Using the WS-I Basic Profile

The Web Services-Interoperability Organization (WS-I) was formed by Oracle and other industry leaders to promote the interoperability of web services technologies across a variety of platforms, operating systems, and programming languages. JDeveloper provides tools that allow you to test the interoperability of web services by checking that the services conform to the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0. In order to perform this analysis, you need to have downloaded a WS-I compliant analyzer.

For more information about WS-I, see the website of The Web Services-Interoperability Organization (WS-I) at

You can analyze a web service for conformity to WS-I standards. The service can either be one you have created that is listed in the Application Navigator or System Navigator, or it can be a web service that you have located using a UDDI registry that is listed in the Connection Navigator. Alternatively, you can create a stub to a deployed web service and use the TCP Packet Monitor to create a log file that you then use to analyze whether the web service conforms to WS-I standards.

You need to have downloaded a WS-I compliant analyzer to your machine and registered it in JDeveloper. For more information, see Registering a WS-I Analyzer.

Note: When you test web services to find out whether they conform to the WS-I Basic Profile, only JAX-RPC web services are likely to be fully compliant. This is because web services developed for deployment on SOAP servers or as Oracle J2EE 1.3 compliant web services are generated to conform to earlier standards.
