Over the last few months, IBM has worked with Microsoft and others to evolve the WS-Eventing spec and to better foster interoperability. The new and updated version was announced today. We hope that this leads to eventual convergence with the WS-Notification family of specs. IBM is committed to having a final set of standards that are functionally rich enough to meet the demands of our enterprise customers. So, with this in mind, we're continuing our leadership efforts to help pull together the industry with common, interoperable specifications, and we remain strongly committed to completing the work in a standards organization.
I would also like to welcome Sun to the fold on this spec and note that they were also part of the WS-Addressing update a few weeks ago. It's great to be all rowing the boat in the same direction. I know our customers think so too.
Here are a couple of WS-Eventing stories that have been published so far: IBM, CA, Sun Sign Up for WS-Eventing on internetnews.com, and
