To continue this -
I am Gerald Edgar and I will be the Boeing representative to the web
services architecture effort.
I am in the Boeing Commercial Airplane IS e-Business and Architecture group.
I have been in software development for the some time now, and for the last
8 years I have been involved in web application architecture and
development, as well as designing software for the web. As part of my
position, I am involved in establishing standards for application
development, as well as consulting with application architects to help them
develop applications that will deploy smoothly here in our computing
environment. For the last 3 years I have been involved in establishing XML
infrastructure here at Boeing, For the last 2 years I have been looking at
web services and have helped others test their use. Last year I presented a
position paper at the w3c's web service workshop on web services.

Here in Boeing we currently have production applications that are using the
stable portions of web services. For me there are two major issues in using
web services: first is that they carry through on their potential for
interoperability across platforms, second is the need for robust security
when using web services in order to protect resources. 

I look forward to working with the group!
