Subject: WS-ReliableMessaging 1.1 Submitted for OASIS Standard
OASIS Members: The OASIS Web Services Reliable Exchange (WS-RX) Technical Committee has submitted the following specification, which is an approved Committee Specification, to be considered as an OASIS Standard: WS-ReliableMessaging 1.1: - Web Services ReliableMessaging 1.1 - Web Services ReliableMessaging Policy 1.1 - Web Services MakeConnection 1.0 The text of the TC submission is appended. You now have until 15 May to familiarize yourself with the submission and provide input to your organization's voting representative. On 16 May, a Call For Vote will be issued to all Voting Representatives of OASIS member organizations. They will have until the last day of May, inclusive, to cast their ballots on whether this Committee Specification should be approved as an OASIS Standard or not. Members who wish to discuss this ballot may do so through firstname.lastname@example.org. In accordance with the OASIS Technical Committee Process, this Committee Specification has already completed the necessary 60-day public review period as noted in the submission below. The normative TC Process for approval of Committee Specifications as OASIS Standards is found at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.php#3.4 Any statements related to the IPR of this specification are posted at: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ws-rx/ipr.php Your participation in the review and balloting process is greatly appreciated.

(d) A clear English-language summary of the specification; The WS-ReliableMessaging 1.1 specification consists of multiple parts. The core WS-ReliableMessaging 1.1 document defines a protocol for reliable message exchange between two Web services, even in the presence of network or system failures. For example, the protocol can ensure the resending of messages that have been lost, and can ensure that duplicate messages are not delivered. The protocol allows Web service nodes to implement a variety of delivery assurances, including At Most Once, At Least Once, Exactly Once and In Order delivery of messages. The protocol fundamentally defines a one-way reliable channel (known as a Sequence), but also includes mechanisms to optimize the creation of two-way reliable exchanges. The protocol is designed to compose with other relevant standards such as WS-Security and WS-SecureConversation. The protocol allows developers to add reliable delivery of messages to their applications on a variety of platforms, including Java and .NET. The WS-ReliableMessaging Policy 1.1 document defines an XML policy language that enables Web services to advertise their support for the WS-ReliableMessaging specification. The specification is designed for use with the WS-Policy Framework. The language aids the interoperability of nodes that support WS-ReliableMessaging by publishing their support and requirements for aspects of reliable messaging. For example, an endpoint may use this specification to indicate that it requires that the reliable message protocol to be secured using transport level security. WS-ReliableMessaging Policy is designed to be used with other policy languages, such as WS-Security Policy, in the scope of the WS-Policy Framework. The WS-MakeConnection 1.0 document defines a protocol that can be used to allow two-way communications when only a transport specific back-channel (such as the HTTP response mechanism) is available. For example, this allows a client to establish a two-way reliable message exchange even in the presence of firewalls and network address translation, that otherwise would prevent the server from initiating connections to the client. (e) A statement regarding the relationship of this specification to similar work of other OASIS TCs or other standards developing organizations; -- The OASIS WS-Reliable Messaging (WSRM) TC also defines a reliable messaging specification for Web services. The WS-RX TC and WS-ReliableMessaging specification focuses on creating a specification that works in conjunction with and composes with other specifications, in particular the WS-Addressing, WS-Security and WS-SecureConversation, and WS-Policy Framework specifications.
