Web services message spec touted

Several vendors including Sun Microsystems and Oracle on Monday announced support for the WS-MessageDelivery specification recently submitted to the World Wide Web Consortium.

The royalty-free specification is intended to make it easier to build complex applications using Web services by standardizing the way Web service endpoints are referenced when multiple Web services are engaged in common message exchange patterns, according to the supportive companies.

The specification is designed to work with patterns outlined in Web Services Description Language and lays a foundation for more sophisticated message-based interactions without sacrificing the loosely coupled model of Web services.

Companies announcing support include Arjuna Technologies, Enigmatec, Hitachi, Iona Technologies, Nokia, Oracle, SeeBeyond, Sonic Software and Sun.
