WS-Policy made it as well! It was finally submitted to a standard body: W3C was the logical choice, given the “meta” personality of the specification.
The authors (BEA Systems Inc, IBM, Microsoft, SAP AG, Sonic Software, Verisign) are joined in the submission by an impressive list of co-submitter: Adobe Systems Incorporated, CA, Ericsson, IONA Technologies, Layer 7 Technologies, Nokia, Oracle Corp., Ricoh Corp., Systinet Corp. (a Mercury division), Sun Microsystems, Inc., TIBCO Software, Inc., webMethods Inc., and WS02! This is clearly a symptom of the importance and impact of the issues covered by WS-Policy, and a standardization is going to benefit our industry as a whole.
So, when you have time please pay visit to WS-Policy in its new home:
