WS-I calls it a 'wrap,' turns over work to OASIS

Here's something you don't see everyday: a standards body has declared its job to be done, and has willed itself out of existence.

Here's something you don't see everyday: a standards body has declared its job to be done, and has willed itself out of existence. The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I; http://www.ws-i.org) has just announced it has successfully concluded its charter to document best practices for Web services interoperability across multiple platforms, operating systems and programming languages.

The release of WS-I member approved final materials for Basic Profile (BP) 1.2 and 2.0, and Reliable Secure Profile (RSP) 1.0 fulfills WS-I's last milestone as an organization. By publishing the final three profiles, WS-I marks the completion of its work. Stewardship over WS-I's assets, operations and mission will transition to OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards). WS-I announced back in July it would be transitioning its work to OASIS, which also oversees development of open standards for Smart Grid, security, Web services, XML conformance, business transactions, electronic publishing, and other applications.

Since 2002, WS-I has developed profiles, sample applications, and testing tools to facilitate Web services interoperability. These building blocks have in turn served as the basis for interoperability in SOA and the cloud. WS-I committees and working groups created Profiles and supporting Testing Tools based on Best Practices for selected sets of Web Services standards, available for use by the Web Services community to aid in developing and deploying interoperable Web Services.
