THE QUEST FOR THE WEB SERVICES STACK

Flávio O. Silva, Pedro F. Rosa

Abstract

The strong use of distributed applications is due to the fact that Internet and the Web are based on common and widely accepted standards. Web services can be the basis of the next generation of applications. Unfortunately if someone asks for the layers of the Web Services protocol stack, the answer cannot be given right away. Considering that this technology is emerging and its bases are being defined, different companies and working groups propose standards that come and go with the same speed. Another problem is that these groups provide their own vision about the stack and, finally, the widely available standards proposals makes this environment a standard’s Babel. In this paper we will run a quest in order to find the Web Services protocol stack, by putting together different standards and visions and finally providing an independent Web Services protocol stack.
