All schema and XML instances included in the specification are well 
formed and all expressions are valid. 

(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. 

(f) Certification by at least three OASIS member organizations that they 
are successfully using the specification;

(g) The beginning and ending dates of the public review(s), a pointer to 
the announcement of the public review(s), and a pointer to an account of 
each of the comments/issues raised during the public review period(s), 
along with its resolution;

(j) A pointer to the publicly visible comments archive for the 
originating TC; 


(k) A pointer to any minority reports submitted by one or more Members 
who did not vote in favor of approving the Committee Specification, 
which report may include statements regarding why the member voted 
against the specification or that the member believes that Substantive 
Changes were made which have not gone through public review; or 
certification by the Chair that no minority reports exist. 

There are no minority reports.
