WS-I Practical Use

Forum Systems introduced its XWall product at N+I and showed off one of its new features ??? WS-I compliance verification. The XWall is truer to the name of XML Firewall than its Sentry product, as it focuses solely on data scrubbing and controlling access to services (and does so at a price even the SMB is likely to appreciate). Its WS-I functionality is very cool, providing not only compliance tests, but validation of XML traffic against the WS-I basic profile. Not what the interop guys who spec'd out WS-I were thinking of using the profile for, but cool nonetheless.
