W3C signs off new web development language
Web standards body W3C has finalised a web services description language with full support for HTTP and SOAP to ease web development.
The new Web Services Description Language (WSDL) 2.0 incorporates improvements for WSDL 1.1 found in the WS-I Basic Profile, and full HTTP and SOAP support.
Jonathan Marsh, co-chair of the W3C Web Services Description Working Group, said, “In addition to the rigorous interoperability testing, we are pleased to have given developers HTTP binding.
“This provides simple web-friendly access to a service when the advanced features available in the SOAP stack, such as WS-Addressing, WS-Security, and WS-ReliableMessaging, are not required,” he said.
