Members Approve WS-ReliableMessaging as OASIS Standard.

New Standard Assures Secure Message Exchange Using Web Services

BOSTON -- OASIS, the international open standards consortium, today announced that its members have approved Web Services Reliable Messaging (WS-ReliableMessaging) version 1.1 as an OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification. WS-ReliableMessaging allows messages to be transferred reliably despite failures in software components, systems, or networks. It enables a broad range of reliability features, including ordered delivery, duplicate elimination, and guaranteed receipt.

"Reliable messaging is one of the features customers demand most as they move to electronic business. The problem is that messages can be lost, repeated, or reordered, and host systems can fail," explained Paul Fremantle of WSO2, co-chair of the OASIS Web Services Reliable Exchange (WS-RX) Technical Committee. "WS-ReliableMessaging addresses all these risks by providing a modular mechanism that identifies, tracks, and manages the reliable transfer of messages between a source and a destination."

Sanjay Patil of SAP, co-chair of the OASIS WS-RX Technical Committee, added, "WS-ReliableMessaging delivers a key element in the openness of an enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) and provides a critical building block that can be used in conjunction with other specifications and application-specific protocols to reliably handle a wide variety of SOA requirements and scenarios."

The extensible nature of WS-ReliableMessaging allows additional functionality, such as security, to be tightly integrated. It incorporates a SOAP binding for interoperability and allows additional bindings to be defined. The protocol can be implemented with a variety of robustness characteristics ranging from in-memory persistence scoped to a single process lifetime, to replicated durable storage that is recoverable in the most extreme circumstances.

OASIS president and CEO, Patrick Gannon, noted, "WS-ReliableMessaging integrates with and complements the WS-Security OASIS Standard as well as other Web services specifications. Combining these standards offers companies many reliable, secure messaging options."

The WS-ReliableMessaging OASIS Standard was developed by representatives of Adobe, BEA Systems, Fujitsu, Hitachi, IBM, Intel, IONA, Microsoft, NEC, Nortel, Novell, Oracle, Progress Software, Red Hat, SAP, Sun Microsystems, TIBCO, webMethods, and others. The WS-ReliableMessaging OASIS Standard and the archives of the OASIS WS-RX Technical Committee work are publicly accessible. OASIS hosts the ws-reliablemessaging-dev mailing list for exchanging information on implementing the standard.
