Subject: Web Services Policy 1.5 Is a Recommendation

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

I am pleased to announce that the "Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework" and "Web Services Policy 1.5 - Attachment" specifications are now W3C Recommendations:

    http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/REC-ws-policy-20070904

    http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/REC-ws-policy-attach-20070904


All but one of the Members who responded to the Call for Review of the Proposed Recommendations [1] supported the specification as is and agreed to its publication as W3C Recommendation without changes. One reviewer supports the specification but suggested that additional work would be undertaken to specify a mechanism for associating WS-Policy with an Endpoint Reference, relying on the WS-PAEPR [2] W3C Member Submission. W3C has brought this Submission to the attention of the Web Services Addressing and Web Services Policy Working Groups as well as the Web Services Coordination Group. W3C is hoping to come up with a proposed charter in the upcoming weeks to resolve the missing mechanism for associating Web Services Policy with an Endpoint Reference.

Please join us in congratulating the Web Services Policy Working Group [3] on this achievement.

For Tim Berners-Lee, Director;
Philippe Le Hégaret, Architecture Domain Leader and Team Contact, Felix Sasaki, Team Contact, Susan Lesch, W3C Communications Team

Abstract

   The Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework provides a general purpose
   model and corresponding syntax to describe the policies of
   entities in a Web services-based system.

   Web Services Policy Framework defines a base set of constructs
   that can be used and extended by other Web services specifications
   to describe a broad range of service requirements and capabilities.

Status of this Document

   This is the W3C Recommendation of the Web Services Policy 1.5 -
   Framework specification. It has been produced by the Web Services
   Policy Working Group, which is part of the W3C Web Services
   Activity.

   This document has been reviewed by W3C Members, by software
   developers, and by other W3C groups and interested parties, and is
   endorsed by the Director as a W3C Recommendation. It is a stable
   document and may be used as reference material or cited from
   another document. W3C's role in making the Recommendation is to
   draw attention to the specification and to promote its widespread
   deployment. This enhances the functionality and interoperability
   of the Web.

   The Working Group released a test suite along with an
   implementation report. A diff-marked version against the previous
   version of this document is available.

   The Working Group is tracking all comments via Bugzilla and highly
   prefers to receive comments via this system. If access to Bugzilla
   is not feasible, you may send your comments to the mailing list
   public-ws-policy-comments@w3.org mailing list (public archive).
   Each Bugzilla entry and email message should contain only one
   comment. All comments on this specification should be made
   following the Description for Issues of the Working Group.

   This document was produced by a group operating under the 5
   February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of
   any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of
   the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a
   patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which
   the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose
   the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent
   Policy.

Abstract

   This specification, Web Services Policy 1.5 - Attachment, defines
   two general-purpose mechanisms for associating policies, as
   defined in Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework, with the subjects

   general-purpose mechanisms may be used to associate policies with
   WSDL and UDDI descriptions.
