Mr. Brostrom will present the XML Message Server (XMS). The West
bridge XMS provides schema validation, authentication, access control,
encryption, signature, malicious attack protection and deep inspection

Understanding the Impact of Web Services Standards

As the adoption of Web Services has grown, so has the need for
Web Services standards. Consortiums such as W3C and OASIS are
developing Web Services standards and reference models in areas
as diverse as architecture, security, messaging, choreography,
and the semantic Web Services. The impact of current and emerging
standards on Web Services adoption and advancement is vast.

This session will provide a high-level survey of the current Web
Services standards "landscape", with an emphasis on standards and
recommendations from W3C, OASIS, and WS-I. Other open consortiums
(such as Liberty Alliance) will also be discussed, as will
specifications that have the potential to become open standards
(e.g. WS-Policy of GXA). Some of the standards to be covered are
"developed" (i.e. a version 1.0 specification has been released),
while others are emerging (i.e. a version 1.0 is in process, or
the standard has just been submitted to a consortium such as OASIS).
Additional standards that are not specifically Web Services-focused
(such as OASIS SAML) but have applications to Web Services will also
be examined.

Areas such as the following will be covered:

Web Services "Basics" - will cover foundational areas such as
SOAP and WSDL, and their latest activity;
Security - will cover current and emerging standards such as
OASIS WS-Security (security framework), OASIS SAML
(assertions/single sign-on), and OASIS XACML (access
Choreography and Business Process - will cover current and
emerging standards such as OASIS WS BPEL (business
process), OASIS WS-CAF (transaction, coordination, and
context propagation), and the W3C Web Services Choreography
Web Services Monitoring and Management - will cover current
and emerging standards such as the OASIS Web Services
Distributed Management (WSDM) TC;
Reliable Messaging - will cover potential, current and
emerging standards such as WS-ReliableMessaging (GXA)
and OASIS Web Services Reliable Messaging (WSRM)

The relationship and potential interaction between each area
discussed will be emphasized, with a focus on any current/potential
interactions between standards (such as between OASIS SAML and
