The Organisation for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (Oasis) has been created to set standards for multi-channel access to Web services.

To create a platform for next-generation Web services, the Oasis web services component model technical committee will establish XML vocabularies and interfaces that will allow a Web service to be independent of the formats or devices involved in its transmission.

Members of the Oasis committee include Cyclone Commerce, DataChannel, Documentum, Epicentric, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Logistics Management Institute, Macromedia, Sterling Commerce and the US Defence Information Systems Agency.

Oasis was the incubator for Electronic Business eXtensible Markup Language (ebXML), version 1.0 specifications of which were released this summer.

Current Web service standards include Web Services Description Language (WDSL), which describes the services a business offers on the Web; Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), which allows operating systems to speak with each over the Web; and Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI), a Web services directory.
