Since this group has just started up, here are my suggestions for some
discussion topics...

1. webservices interoperability

One concern I have about webservices interoperability is the fact that
companies are already bringing out webservices enabled software that
although is based on SOAP, has proprietary standards included for data
exchange.  We need webservices to understand each other fully both at the
messaging layer (SOAP) and the data exchange layer (ebXML). Is there a need
to bring in a type of 'certification' procedure for webservices related
products to say that they conform to standards, and are interoperable? Will
they fact that they say they are ebXML compliant be enough?

2. quality of service

Registries such as UDDI which contains an organized collection of business
Web service descriptions to everyone. I expect there will be many
webservices in the future which offer a similar service. How will a
prospective customer differentiate on quality of service, will they then
need to go elsewhere to other registries which may offer this information.
Will there be special robots that may interface with the UDDI registry,
extract lists of suitable webservices and then conduct quality of service
investigations..

just some suggestions..all comments are welcome
