In this BOF session, we will give a brief overview of the WSRF, WSN, and WSDM families of Web Services specifications and the new Apache implementations of these specifications.
WebServicesResourceFramework (WSRF), WebServicesNotification (WSN), and WebServicesDistributedManagement (WSDM) are emerging Web services standards that, respectively, define ways to expose and control stateful resources, expose subscription-based notifications, and use Web services as an enterprise management protocol.
Just last week, Hewlett Packard and the Globus Alliance contributed implementations of WSRF and WSN to Apache. The implementations are hosted as Incubator projects sponsored by the Web Services project. The intent is that they will eventually be ws/ws-fx subprojects. The WSRF implementation is called Apollo, and the WSN implementation is called Hermes.
Additionally, HP contributed an implementation of ManagementUsingWebServices (MuWS), the core specification of WSDM. This project, also hosted in the Incubator, is called Muse and is intended to eventually be a ws subproject.
The session will be in the Parthenon 5 conference room on Monday from 9:00-10:00pm. The presenters are IanSpringer and SalCampana from HP, two of the developers of the Apache WSRF/WSN/MuWS implementations.
