I've been neglecting to post to the blog of late... too much to do, not enough time and all that.
However, I would like to point out that there have been a number of recent developments releveant to Web services that might be of interest.
First, the WS-I Basic Profile WG has published its first public draft of the WS-I Basic Profile 1.2. The WG is nearly done with this work, but we invite the public to comment on the initial draft. Those comments will, of course, be incorporated into the follow-on drafts. However, the WG is driving towards a WGAD (Working Group Approval Draft) later this month.
Secondly, the WS-Policy WG has pulished a draft of the WS-Policy 1.5 - Primer. The WG hopes that this document will help people understand what WS-Policy is, and how it is intended to be used. I should also note that the WG will be having a face-to-face meeting next week where we hope to squish all of the remaining issues with the WS-Policy 1.5 - Framework and Attachments specifications in anticipation of release of a Last Call WD later this month, in accordance with the WG charter.
Finally, IBM has delivered its beta release of the WAS 6.1 Feature Pack for Web services. If you are interested in kicking the tires on some of the advanced Web services technologies in the new WS-I profiles (BP1.2, 2.0 and RSP1.0) including WS-Addressing 1.0, WS-Reliable Messaging 1.1 and WS-Secure Conversation 1.3, then be sure to check this release out.
