WSDL 2.0 is shaping up in W3C

I just got out of the F2F meeting of the W3C WSD working group in Sunnyvale. In addition to the ususal noodlework, the group decided two admin things:

1. Publish another revision of working drafts for WSDL 2.0 core language specification and message patterns. The working drafts will incorporate the work done by the group so far. Just to name a few

  • the removal of message construct
  • the addition of feature and property support
  • more flexible way of supporting different message patterns
  • You should be able to get the latest draft from the working group’s public site

    2. Ask for extension of the group’s charter for another 2 years. There still are a lot of things to be finished, especially the binding section are still wild open.

    For those who are implementing web services and waiting for a better WSDL right now, my suggestion would be stick with WSDL1.1 and use the help of WS-I BP1.0 which provides a lot of clarifications for WSDL1.1. Many decisions made in BP1.0 for WSDL are being incorporated into WSDL2.0.
