New Working Draft of the Web Services Policy Framework
The W3C Web Services Policy Working Group has just published a new draft of the Web Services Policy 1.5 Framework (often referred to as WS-Policy). This is an important step forward along the path towards becoming a W3C Recommendation. WS-Policy provides a way to associate policy information with running services and/or service descriptions. I believe that policy usage will become a key component of Web Services based solutions.
