The Web Services-Interoperability organization (WS-I) on Monday said it will create guidelines meant to ensure that standards-based reliable-messaging software from different vendors will work together. The WS-I publishes "profiles" that include directions on how to write software from published Web services standards, a series of XML-based protocols for sharing data between applications.
The organization will establish a working group to write a reliable-messaging profile that will be based on two specifications: OASIS WS-ReliableMessaging 1.1 and OASIS WS-Secure Conversations. An effort to create a reliable-messaging profile, proposed last month, had failed because Oracle and Fujitsu abstained, according to Tom Glover, former WS-I chairman.
