1st) my WSE implementation for the Compact Framework made it as a late entry into yesterday's OpenNETCF SDF 1.2 Release. the bits have been updated for WSE 2.0 Release to support WS-Addressing, WS-Attachments, WS-Security, and WS-SecureConversation. also have a corresponding article with client side code to get online. it can be used to call every WSE sample except Kerberos
2nd) just as soon as i get WSE 2.0 support out the door, Hervey announces the coming of WSE 2.0 Service Pack 1. dont see anything breaking within the change log ... but i would love to test an alpha version before this is released! actually, i've been failing at getting ANY inside track to what MS is doing with Web Services ... so i'm not holding my breath :( also, none of the pain points i've had with WSE 2.0's handling of non-default encryption algorithms show up in the SP1 list ... but that is ok, because device developers enjoy pain :)
3rd) actually, i'll relieve most of that pain shortly. i've got an extended crypto library for CF now that supports AES that has already been integrated with the WSE bits in OpenNETCF. meaning once i put the crypto code out there, then a device can use this additional library to call WSE 2.0 using its default encryption algorithms ... including passing Entropy for WS-SecureConversation. then the only changes that the samples need to have done are getting rid of the use of 'localhost'
4th) there is alot more work to be done ...
