Some time ago I introduced Wcf.js - a wcf-inspired client soap stack for node.js. However Wcf.js itself is a small wrapper on top of Ws.js - the ws-* implementation for node.js. You got it right: Your node.js apps can now access your core services using various ws-* standards. No more proxies for "protocol bridging", no more service rewrites.

Get it here.

Here is a quick sample on what we can do with Ws.js:


The above example adds a username token to the soap. The output soap will be:


For detailed usage instructions check it out on github.

Ws.js currently supports:

  • MTOM
  • WS-Security (username tokens only)
  • WS-Addressing (all versions)
  • HTTP(S)

  • Coming up next is probably deeper ws-security support including x.509 certificates encryption and signature. Needless to say that any capability added to ws.js will also apply to wcf.js.
