Subject: Web Services Quality Factors Version 1.0 approved and published as a Committee Specification

OASIS Members,

We are pleased to announce the approval and publication of an OASIS
Committee Specification by the members of the OASIS Web Services
Quality Model TC:

Web Services Quality Factors Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
22 July 2011

The purpose of this document is to provide a standard for quality
factors of web services in their development, usage and management.
Web services usually have distinguished characteristics. They are
service-oriented, network-based, variously bind-able, loosely-coupled,
platform independent, and standard-protocol based. As a result, a web
service system requires its own quality factors unlike
installation-based software. For instance, as the quality of web
services can be altered in real-time according to changes by the
service provider, considering real-time properties of web services is
very meaningful in describing the web services quality. This document
presents the quality factors of web services with definition,
classification, and sub-factors case by case. For each quality factor,
related specifications are cited with a brief explanation. This
specification can be generally extended to the definition of quality
of SOA and to provide the foundation for quality in the SOA system.

The prose specification document and related files are available here:

Members of the OASIS Web Services Quality Model TC [1] requested a
Special Majority Vote to approve this specification as a Committee
Specification. The specification had been released for public review
as required by the TC Process [2]. The vote to approve at Committee
Specification level passed [3], and the approved Committee
Specification is now available online in the OASIS Library as
referenced above.

Our congratulations to the TC on achieving this milestone.
