   Is the Tide Turning Again? WS-MetadataExchange (Sun and Others)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

More interesting news from the Web Services specification world, this
time with an additional twist beyond that exhibited by the WS-Addressing
spec news several weeks ago. Reported factually and with vendor
neutrality in mind:

This time, Sun has been included as an author on a Web Services
specification whose original authors include Microsoft and IBM. However,
an additional twist is that this specification - WS-MetadataExchange -
is not in an open standards consortium; rather, it is a "vendor
specification". It seems that the tide may be turning toward greater
support of development of such vendor specifications, prior to their
being submitted to an open standards consortium*.
