   RE: [xml-dev] WS-Addressing to W3C: Is the Tide Turning?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Of course.  The news interviewed Brodie Croyle and he 
gives the Tide an excellent chance this season.

Oh... you mean the Other Tide?

One hopes so.  Looking at the soft market and the 
relative stock prices, I believe it's cooperation  
or a fire sale of assets for some of these 
companies.  Stockholders can be relentless.  Been there.

Is it only about money?  No, but without that, the 
other reasons can't be supported.   That isn't a 
cynical position.  It is hopeful because it means 
parties are recognizing that business is not always 
about beating the other guy.  It does matter how 
the game is played.

For those interested in the Web Services specifications/standards

It was just announced that the WS-Addressing specification has been
submitted to W3C[1].

Also, somewhat surprisingly given the "vendor dynamics" on such
specifications: The authors include not only Microsoft, IBM, BEA, and
SAP, but...Sun Microsystems. 

Is the tide turning?
