World Wide Web Consortium rolls out new XML standards

Antony Savvas

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has published three new web services XML standards to make it easier to deliver and manage data.

W3C said the standards are needed as web services applications have to handle an increasingly diverse set of media formats and devices, including large schematics and other graphical files.

The standards published are XML-binary Optimized Packaging (XOP), the Soap Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM), and the Resource Representation Soap Header Block (RRSHB).

These standards provide ways to efficiently package and transmit binary data included or referenced in a Soap 1.2 message.

The standards have the support of IBM, BEA and Microsoft, all leading players in web services applications.

More details of the three standards are available here:
