Subject Re: name for 3.0 stuff (was: Re: Potential F2F design session for 3.0?)
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2000 13:15:02 GMT
Sorry I'm coming in late to the discussion, but what about "Web Service
Infrastructure", or WSI, which is pronouncable as "whizzy"?  I rather like
the idea of people using "the whizzy engine from Apache"....

+1 re: Sanjiva's scoping comments.  I think the engine is a crucial piece,
but when we add the other tools like interface importing/exporting, rich
deployment options, and an easy-to-use extension framework, we get something
that developers can *really* use.
