Subject RE: Potential F2F design session for 3.0?
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2000 16:42:21 GMT
For now, since XP is not even out of the initial germination stages, SOAP
should be our focus.  When XP comes around, we should track it and support
it.  We have a great opportunity now to create an architecture that not only
allows us to track XP without a major reorganization, but also allows us to
support multiple protocols (SOAP & XP).  SOAP for backwards compatibility
and MS Integration (I doubt .Net will track XP too closely for a while), and
XP for obvious reasons.

I just want to make sure.  I do not disagree with you at all.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
SOAP has a specifcation, but XP just started, so no specifaction is
So do you mean that we support multiple protocols such as SOAP, ebXML,
etc. at this moment, and we will follow a specification which comes from
XML Protocol work?
We have a big umbrella like Web Services, and have sub-projects like
Service Description, etc.  Is it right?

Mandate given. Seems like this project is now about SOAP & XP, or even more
broadly, it is about providing a Web Services development architecture that
is capable of supporting multiple XML-based protocols.  Would everyone

I'll go a step further.  Apache agreed to host this project based on my
promise that this work would track the W3C standard.
