Influential standards

What standards do you think will play a key role in the market during the next year?
During the next year, there will be many standards that will be introduced but two in particular that will have a significant impact on the industry. Web Services Reliable Messaging (WS-RM), which provides the essential guarantee that messages sent by an initial sender will actually get delivered to the receiver - and delivered only once. WS-RM goes even further by ensuring that if messages are sent in a critical sequence they will be delivered in the correct order. There are few business processes within financial services organizations that can be deployed without these fundamental guarantees.

Another new standard to watch in 2004 is Web Services Addressing (WS-Addressing), which provides a transport-neutral way to address Web services and messages, and allows message transmission through varying transport protocols and other intermediaries. WS-RM and WS-Addressing are a powerful combination that will allow pure, standards-based Web services to solve a wealth of integration problems that previously required complex, expensive and proprietary middleware or enterprise application integration (EAI) solutions.

Boubez: SOA virtualization, SLAs and access control policy In part 1 of this interview with Toufic Boubez, chief technology officer for XML networking vendor Layer 7 Technologies Inc., he said the WS-Policy standard work at W3C is complete and that standard is being implemented. In part 2, he explains that there is still work to be done on specifications for policy languages expressing access control and service level agreements (SLAs) within WS-Policy. Boubez, co-author of the original UDDI specification, worked as an editor on the W3C working group that completed the WS-Policy specification this past summer. Now he is working informally with other vendors to provide the security, access control and federation specifications for SOA. He also discussed virtualization as it related to SOA.
