      For your enjoyment here are three new Web Services specs [1] showing
      some ideas in the area of SOAP routing, message encapsulation, and
      process orchestration:

      1) SOAP Routing Protocol (SOAP-RP) is a simple SOAP-based protocol for
      routing SOAP messages over a variety of protocols like TCP, UDP, HTTP
      etc. It can be used for one-way messaging, two-way messaging like
      request/response as well as peer-to-peer conversations, and so on.

      2) Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a lightweight, binary
      encapsulation format that can be used to encapsulate multiple documents
      of arbitrary type and size into a single message construct. It is used
      by SOAP-RP as the encapsulation mechanism when exchanged directly over
      TCP or UDP in order to support encapsulation of attachments to the
      SOAP-RP message as well as to provide efficient message delimiting.

      3) Web Services for Business Process Design (XLANG) is the XML business
      process language used in BizTalk Server. It provides a way to
      orchestrate applications and XML Web services into larger-scale,
      federated applications by enabling developers to aggregate even the
      largest applications as components in a long-lived business process.

      You can find links to the specs at [1]. The relationship between these
      specs and Web Services in general were described in the Web Services
      Framework paper [2] presented at the recent W3C Web Services Workshop
      [3].

      DevelopMentor has started some discussion lists for this -- see [4], [5]
      and [6] for details. Sorry for the cross-posting - please don't respond
      to this mail on all aliases!

      Have fun,
