Leading independent Web services provider is an active participant in the formation of critical Web services specification
Systinet, the leading independent provider of Web services infrastructure software, today announced support for the latest World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) SOAP 1.2 Specification, which has advanced to Proposed Recommendation status. Systinet WASP for Java, 4.5 is a reference implementation for the standard, and was used to provide valuable evidence of interoperable implementations of SOAP 1.2. This evidence will be leveraged to advance the specification along W3C’s Recommendation track.
“SOAP 1.2 is a significant achievement and its specification is now close to completion,” said Roman Stanek, founder and CEO of Systinet. “Systinet is pleased to share our technology and products with organizations like W3C to develop early implementations of the industry’s most pervasive Web services standards.”
SOAP 1.2 is a lightweight protocol intended for exchanging structured information in a decentralized, distributed environment, and is one of the key standards that underpin Web services technology. The latest SOAP 1.2 specification has a clearer framework for extensibility, which will make interoperability between different implementations much easier. SOAP 1.2 also defines a formal binding framework and XML Infoset, both of which allow SOAP to be used across many different applications and environments. W3C officially announced its proposed recommendation for the SOAP 1.2 specification today. SOAP 1.2 has been sent to the W3C Membership for final review.
Systinet has been on the forefront of Web services standards development and is a founding member and active promoter of key standards efforts for SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, Web services security, Web services interoperability and other cooperative efforts at W3C, UDDI.org/Advisory Group, OASIS, WS-I and WS-S.
