Web Services Framework (WSF) Standards: The Interoperability Framework for Service-Oriented Architecture

Thursday, November 18, 2004

Abstract

"Web Services Framework (WSF) Standards: The Interoperability Framework for Service-Oriented Architecture" is a Research Report prepared by Burton Group, an ECAR partner. It is available to ECAR subscribers through special arrangement. This 52-page report discusses how the evolving WSF suite of standards -- including Extensible Markup Language (XML), the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) -- supports a truly platform-independent language-independent, loosely coupled approach to service integration. The core WSF standards address simple integration scenarios well, but consensus standards haven't yet been implemented for reliable messaging, notification, and transactions. Burton Group (www.burtongroup.com) provides technically in-depth research and advisory services for colleges and universities, government agencies, and commercial enterprises. Burton Group's practical and unbiased research and advice helps technologists make smart IT infrastructure decisions in increasingly complex environments. Burton Group covers directories, identity management, application platforms, architecture, and network and telecom infrastructure topics. Like ECAR, Burton Group is an unbiased advocate for the user and more than 80% of Burton Group's clients are user organizations rather than suppliers. EDUCAUSE member institutions can become users of Burton Group research services through EDUCAUSE pricing. Burton Group is an ECAR partner and can be contacted by email at slesueur@burtongroup.com or by telephone (801-373-5767).
