The Web Services Architecture working group holds a face to face meeting
next week.  The agenda is on the members-only administrative page, but the
basic objectives are to wordsmith and address issues in the "basic
architecture" section of the architecture document, to organize and start to
flesh out the "extended architecture" sections, and to finalize what we want
to say to the W3C Advisory Committee to recommend a role for the W3C in
standardizing web service choreography description languages.

Here is the reading list of documents we will be examining.  

REQURED: The WSA Architecture and Glossary drafts.  Please note errors and
omissions, suggest terms (and definitions!) that should be in the glossary,
etc. Non-members of the WG are welcome to offer comments, suggested
improvements, and to propose text to add.

The Architecture of the World Wide Web draft from the TAG.  We have a
requirement to be "consistent with the architectural principles and design
goals of the Web" and this is the most authoritative statement of those

The "extensibility" section of the SOAP 1.2 spec.  We need to have a deep
understanding of the extensibility mechanisms built into SOAP and WSDL.

The XMLP issues list -- we are still in discussions with that group on some
aspects of the SOAP 1.2 spec.

The latest documents produced by the Web Services Description WG -- this is
not officially on the agenda, but is something we need to track so as to
help coordinate the architecture of the Web, SOAP, WSDL, and new web
services specifications.

Additional reading suggestions are solicited.  We are especially interested
in pointers to technical articles that try to organize the "extended
architecture" features such as security, management, choreography,
reliability, etc. in a larger context.  Also, I'm sure that some of you out
there are writing books, dissertations, or other detailed analyses of web
services architectural issues.  If you wish to make early drafts available
for our edification but do not want to expose them to the world as a whole
just yet, contact me offline and I will point the editors and/or WG to them
on a private list.
