Too often today the preferences, terms, and conditions describing how a Web service behaves when discovered and invoked is programmed right into the business logic. Hard-coding this behavior logic however introduces cost, complexity, and rigidity into a Web services architecture.

This session introduces the concept of Web Services Policy and describes how the construct can be used to implement a more customized and versatile Web service infrastructure.
