ANN: service specification language for SOAP (and others) available via alphaWorks

Following up on the previously released XIDL language, our research group
just released a full service specification language called NASSL (Network
Accessible Service Specification Language).

The document is avaialble at:
(go to the downloads page).

NASSL completes the job that XIDL started: XIDL was only about specifying
the interfaces of a service. NASSL allows you to define the types involved,
define the interfaces, bind interfaces to protocols and specify the access 
points where the services are actually available.

Comments / suggestions / criticisms are most welcome!
