WS-* · Ex­tract­ed from the valu­able list at CBDI, and omit­ting those marked su­per­seded, we find BPEL4WS (Busi­ness Pro­cess Ex­e­cu­tion Lan­guage for Web Ser­vices), WS-Addressing, WS-AtomicTransaction, WS-BPEL (Web Ser­vices Busi­ness Pro­cess Ex­e­cu­tion Lan­guage), WS-CAF (Web Ser­vices Co­or­di­na­tion Frame­work, in­clud­ing WS-CTX, WS-CF, and WS-TXM), WS-Choreography, WS-Coordination, WSDL (Web Ser­vice De­scrip­tion Lan­guage), WSDM (Web Ser­vices Distribut­ed Man­age­men­t), WS-Eventing, WS-Federation (Web Ser­vices Fed­er­a­tion Lan­guage), WSIL (WS In­spec­tion Lan­guage), WS-Manageability, WS-Notification, WS-Policy, WS-Provisioning, WS Reli­able Mes­sag­ing, WS-ReliableMessaging (not the same as the pre­vi­ous), WS-RF (WS-Resource Frame­work), WSRP (WS Re­mote Por­tal­s), WS-Security, WS-SecureConversation, WS-SecurityPolicy (an ad­den­dum to WS-Security), WS Se­cu­ri­ty Ser­vices, and WS-Trust. Hey, they missed WS-MetadataExchange, and now I see that we have WS-BaseFaults and WS-ServiceGroup as of yes­ter­day. Is this the fu­ture? Is the em­per­or dressed?
 
TCP is So Over · Most of us have been hear­ing ru­mors about this skunkworks XCP thing for some time, but now they seem to be open to the pub­lic. As they say, “Light the Fiber!” Think about it this way: I first went to the mat with TCP/IP in 1984, when 4.2b­sd hit the street­s. A twenty-year run is plen­ty for most tech­nolo­gies, and I’d say TCP has pret­ty well had its time in the sun.
