back to top   General Scope


Web Services promise to ease various of nowadays infrastructure challenges. Especially they are publicized to mark a step into a new era of integration. Integration of data, processes, and also whole enterprises on the basis of a set of loosely related lightweight approaches which transparently hide any technical implementation details except the Web serving as the basic transport and deployment mechanism.

Interoperability will surely prove itself as the critical success factor of the web service proliferation promised by some analysts. In order to accomplish these interoperability various standardization bodies such as the W3C, UN or OASIS founded activities working on specifications to work on building blocks of a web service architecture still to be defined. Nevertheless, a significant number of vendors offer first commercial solutions which have been implemented by early adopters creating some real world services.
