Firms submit cross-platform compatibilty spec to W3C

Antony Savvas

BEA Systems, IBM, Microsoft, SAP and Sun Microsystems, have jointly submitted a specification for cross-platform compatibility to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

The spec called WS-Addressing is aimed at helping users build interoperable web services applications that are designed to work across disparate hardware platforms and operating environments.

Mark Nottingham, senior principal technologist in the office of the chief technology officer at BEA Systems, has been named chair of the W3C WS-Addressing Working Group.

The W3C WS-Addressing Working Group is refining the specification to define a standard way for identifying and exchanging web services messages between multiple end points.

In the 10 years since the W3C was founded, it has developed more than 80 technical specifications for the web's infrastructure, and the WS-Addressing specification is expected to play a critical role.
