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

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

There's actually more to it than that, at one level higher of

The biggest advantage of WS-Addressing (and any spec that covers this
general area) is that one is not tied to one particular mechanism for
specifiying this type of information in - for example, SOAP. Rather,
these mechanisms, if employed, can help "future-proof" an implementation
by enabling the addressing and endpoint identification capabilities to
hold, no matter what transport mechanisms may be used in the future.
