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 diagrams.

The standards published are XML-binary optimised packaging (XOP), the Soap message transmission optimisation mechanism (MTOM), and the resource representation Soap header block (RRSHB). These standards provide ways to 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.
