ex machina

there's an interesting discussion regarding an open transport protocol for aysnc web services on the w3c web services list [note:the thread breaks and then continues in july] :
"One of the biggest holes to web service adoption inside the enterprise seems to be the lack of an open transport protocol for aysnc, reliable message delivery. By this I mean an equivalent of HTTP which provides for two-way async communication with decent performance. Ideally, this protocol should become a standard over time enabling "out of the box" web service interoperability between different vendors, products, systems, etc. What I'm envisioning is having different systems be able to communicate asynchronously inside the enterprise the way they might communicate outside the enterprise via HTTP.

"There are a few proprietary alternatives (that I know of) including Tibco's Rendezvous, IBM's MQ APIs, and JMS. But none of these is open and I don't think you would see widespread adoption as such. One cannot assume that every system is going to be able to talk Rendezvous the way one can assume about HTTP. JMS might be the closest thing to what I'm thinking about, but it seems tightly coupled to Java and it really is more of an API for driving messaging systems rather than a transport protocol."

"There's also a few open protocol possiblities (again that I know of) including the Jabber as Middleware effort ( which aims to provide a messaging transport over Jabber's XML on IM backbone. Anyone know of any (other?) efforts going on in this area?"

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
