On October 11th 2006 OASIS announced that its members had approved the WS-BaseNotification, WS-BrokeredNotification and WS-Topics specifications as OASIS standards. For more information see the announcement.
The purpose of the Web Services Notification (WSN) TC is to define a set of specifications that standardise the way Web services interact using "Notifications" or "Events". They form the foundation for Event Driven Architectures built using Web services.
These specifications provide a standardized way for a Web service, or other entity, to disseminate information to a set of other Web services, without having to have prior knowledge of these other Web Services. They can be thought of as defining "Publish/Subscribe for Web services".
These specifications have many applications, for example in the arenas of system or device management, or in commercial applications such as electronic trading.
WS-BaseNotification 1.3 OASIS Standard, approved October 1st 2006
WS-BrokeredNotification 1.3 OASIS Standard, approved October 1st 2006
