Launched in January 2009, Stonehenge is designed to provide a public forum to test the interoperability of WS-* protocols on different technical stacks and to build sample applications that could provide best practices and coding guidelines for better interoperability.
Customers get working code on multiple platforms and vendors catch bugs and test interoperability issues in an open manner.
The first version “M1” of the Stock Trader sample application showcased the main Web Services standards, including WS-Security.
Today, we are glad to announce the availability of Stonehenge “M2”, the second iteration, now including WS-Trust 1.4 and WS-FED 1.1 protocols for claims-based authentication scenarios. This allows the end-users’ to be authenticated through an independent Security Token Service (STS) that is trusted by the bank and to pass that token to the broker to process the transaction.
In this video, Kent Brown (Product Manager, Microsoft) and Kamaljit Bath (Principal Program Manager, Microsoft) introduce Stonehenge and present an actual demo of the M2 release.
You can download the M1 and M2 releases of Apache Stonehenge from http://www.apache.org/dist/incubator/stonehenge and the documentation is up on the wiki: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/STONEHENGE/Index
