Asynchronous delivery with WS-Addressing


Article from Issue 84/2007

WS-Addressing is a standard that enables flexible communication between web services.

Two of the major standards bodies, OASIS and the W3C, recently released a flurry of standards dealing with web services. Because most of these standards have names that start with WS, the standards are loosely known as WS-* or (less formally) WS-splat.
