Asynchronous delivery with WS-Addressing



WS-Addressing is a standard that enables flexible communication between web services.

Two of the major standards bodies, OASIS and the W3C, recently released a flurry of standards dealing with web services. Because most of these standards have names that start with WS, the standards are loosely known as WS-* or (less formally) WS-splat. In this article, I will examine one of the key pieces, WS-Addressing, and explain how it can enhance existing web service applications and ultimately bring powerful new messaging patterns into the web services world.
