Web Services Standards: Going Behind the Mask
Web Services Edge 2005 East: WS-2

Glen Daniels is manager of standards and consortia at Sonic Software and coauthor of Building Web Services with Java. He has been working with Web services technologies since their inception in the late ’90s, and in addition to developing products and helping to found Apache’s Axis project, he has been an active participant in standards bodies such as the W3C, and a member of the SOAPBuilders interoperability group.

Web services and service-oriented architectures (SOAs) are emerging as an integral part of the enterprise IT strategy. According to a recent IDC study, Web services-related revenue is expected to triple from $1.1 billion worldwide in 2003, to $3.4 billion in 2004, and $16.6 billion by 2008. As SOAs proliferate and the number of Web services added to them increases, standards will play an increasingly significant role. This session will look at the state of key Web services standards such as WS-Choreography, WS-Reliability and WS-ReliableMessaging, SOAP/MTOM/XOP, WSDL, XPath, XQuery, and WS-Notification as well as related Java standards and open source efforts. It will also look at the organizational impact of standards adoption in the industry.
