Subject Re: regarding the license of WSIF
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 10:37:38 GMT

IBM has donated WSIF to the Apache Foundation so WSIF is freely available
under the Apache license. For details of the Apache license see This is
the same for WSIL which IBM also donated to the Apache Foundation.

Early on there was an attempt to get WSIF standardized through the JCP/JSR,
but at the time the technology was thought too experimental. Now WSIF has
undergone much development work, has become much more stable, and now has
mainstream acceptance, so there has been talk of having another attempt at
getting it recognized by one of the standards organizations.

Subject:    regarding the license of WSIF

hello everyone, where can I find the license materials for WSIF? it is
fully Apache or IBM still owns the ip? what about WSIL?

Can anyone implement these two technologies as other ws specs such as SOAP,
