This document is a working list of possible enhancements which may be included in future versions of WS-Reliability specification.

 

Comments are solicited on this list of potential enhancements.

2         Potential Enhancements for Future Versions of WS-Reliability

2.1      Composition with new WS Specs

Next version should support composition with new WS specs.

 

2.2      Soap 1.2 Features and Modules

Next Version should take advantage of SOAP 1.2 Features and Modules.

 

2.3      Refinements of HTTP Soap Bindings

Next version should consider revising the HTTP binding section to rely more on the standard soap binding to HTTP.   The next spec could, instead of repeating all the HTTP Binding details, rely more on the standard soap 1.1 and soap 1.2 bindings to HTTP.

 

2.4      Non HTTP Soap Bindings

Next version should specify the use of transport bindings other than HTTP (e.g., smtp for oneway mep).

 

2.5      WSDL 2 Properties and Features

Next version should investigate taking advantage of WSDL 2.0 properties and Features.

 

2.6      Reliability Assurances for Synchronous Response

Next version of WS-Reliability should support, for the synchronous case - reliability assurances of request as well as reliability assurances of response

 

2.7      Removal of Asynchronous Poll

Next version of spec should consider removal of asynchronous  poll. What can it achieve that cannot be achieved by synch poll.

 

2.8      Schema style and Optimization

Next version of spec should consider various schema optimizations and style changes.
