Very interesting, Johannes. I can't wait to see implementations of this standard come out. This addresses some of the shortcomings of UDDI that we've seen.

Also, from the content it seems things are happening recently.
Is Web-service so new?

Yes, Web services are quite new and still evolving. However, do not mistake the current pace of new "languages/techniques" for a steady-state. I expect that the range of "new" Web services technologies (like WS-Inspection) will calm down within the next 6 months. The real work will begin with a new phase, already started, and most likely lasting for 12-18 months, in which we will see continued improvement of the implementations and tooling in this area.

Sometimes I wish- they will makeup thier mind and create a standard so that we can move and implment the business rather than going thru the learings of every new flavr of technology.
Webservices started with SOAP/WSDl/WDDI. There already new additions like WSCL/WSFl etc- they are useful but a lot of strain on developers.

It would be nice if MS did not feel it had to impose its own flavour on everything. SOAP is a great idea for protocol, but MS will not leave it at that. For that matter, why cannot MS accept w3c standard XML instead, having MSXML? Perhaps they may take a leaf from the book IBM is reading and support open source (even if only to fight MS) software like Linux

Sanjay:
If SOAP/WSDL and UDDI are sufficient for your needs, then great, you can stop there and be productive. The decision in the Web services community was to produce a collection of smaller, relatively complementary standards as opposed to a single monolithic approach. This allows a mix and match approach to designing and deploying applications and middleware. This makes it much easier from a standards perspective as well, as changes can be made locally to existing specs where appropriate and new specs can be added to the mix to serve special purpose.
I agree there is a lot of new technology coming down the pipes, but I assert that the rate of change will slow down over the next 6-12 months to everyone's relief.
