As we draw to the close of a big year for the ETTK, we would like to announce the release of another package on alphaWorks. The new package is the WSDM Browser for CIM and OSGi. WSDM is an OASIS standard for Web services management. This new ETTK package uses WSDM to show how a single application can manage disparate types of resources without requiring any special knowledge of the types of resources, their models, or their implementation technologies. This package also demonstrates WSDM interoperability by managing both WebSphere and .Net resources.
Even though Web services technology is not usually regarded as being in the emerging category, some aspects of it still are. Using a Web services model to manage a Web services solution is one of those areas - one with tremendous potential to simplify the information technology landscape.
