I followed a link from java.net to IBM's website for information on emerging web services-related standards like WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Security, WS-Addressing, among others. I started reading up on them when it became apparent that these "standards" are not really standards at all but rather, are proposals for standards from IBM, Microsoft and "their other partners".

Does anyone have any knowledge on the status of these proposals or what has actually become standardized and through which standards body? (Side question: how can we have "standards" with so many "standards bodies"? What a pain!).

I went to w3.org and perused their web services section and the only standard mentioned there (other than WSDL and SOAP) was WS-Addressing.

If anyone could shed some light on this, I would greatly appreciate it.

You would probably get better answers to this topic in the 'Web Services' forum. I'll go ahead and move it there...

The WS-* security standards are part of the OASIS web service security standards. See http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=wss

Here is an interesting article on these standards: http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2005/02/09/wssecurity.html
