Representatives from Nokia, Oracle and IBM have joined the Organisation for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards' (Oasis) board of directors.
Frederick Hirsch of Nokia, Jeff Mischkinsky of Oracle and Michael Weiner of IBM were elected to fill three seats created through the recent expansion of the Oasis board.
The 11-member board also includes representatives of companies such as Hewlett-Packard, BEA Systems, Microsoft and Sun Microsystems.
Oasis oversees several standards fundamental to web services, including XML and UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration). The directors' terms will expire in 2005.
