Thanks for your response Jeff.

If I understand WSDL properly, one could allow for QoS to be represented in a WSDL file by using extensibility options.
While it may not have been formally discussed on w3c.org, is this currently the preferred way for applying QoS descriptions to WSDL files?  (I assume there must be some discussion on this...)

Or am I just totally confused?  :)

Thanks,

Ryan

  Ryan, the following requirement has been accepted by the W3C Web Services Description Working Group (WG), but the WG hasn't as yet discussed any proposals for meeting that requirement.



  R117 

  The description language SHOULD allow specifying QoS-like policies and mechanisms of a Web Service. For instance, an indication of how long it is going to take a Web Service to process the request. (From WG discussion. Last discussed 12 April 2002.)

    Hi,



    Long time listener...but I don't post much.  I've got a question about QoS in WSDL 1.2.

    I've gone over the 1.2 specs and there doesn't seem to be any fucntionality offered by WSDL directly for describing the QoS for a web service.  Is there a practice for defining QoS within 1.2?  Does one have to use the extensibility options?



    Thanks,



    Ryan
