Check www.ws-i.org - they are doing some certification work for the basic
profile specs - SOAP 1.1, WSDL 1.1 and UDDI 2.0 - at this point a vendor's
assertion that they are WS-I compliant is probably your best bet.

For higher level specs there have been some vendor interop tests, see: 


This page provides a list of the public results to date of these private

Hi there,

Is there anywhere that people can go to "certify" their web services

What I mean is this...I am looking at a (great) product called
openadaptor as a way to link different data sources together.
openadaptor is able to read from files, databases, JMS queues....and web
services!  (It can read from loads of other types of sources as well :-)

But, saying that it can read "web services"...does that mean that I
could hook it up to any web service and it would work?

Now, before you all reply saying "it depends how they have written it."
- that's my point. Does it depend on how it's written? If I can connect
and read from one vendor's web service, can I connect and read from

So...my question is, are there any ways to "certify" some web services
software to say whether it conforms to any standard? or is it just "suck
it and see"?

Any thought?
