On 24 October 2011, the Web Services Quality Model TC published Web Services Quality Factors Version 1.0 as OASIS Committee Specification 01. See http://docs.oasis-open.org/wsqm/WS-Quality-Factors/v1.0/cs01/WS-Quality-Factors-v1.0-cs01.html for the Committee Specification itself. The announcement can be found at http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/wsqm/201110/msg00010.html


The OASIS WSQM TC will prepare a quality model (WSQM) in the context of contracting for Web services between associates conceptually, in order to secure Web services at a specific level of service quality. Probably as a second phase after the general model is described, the TC also will propose WS-QDL (Web Services Quality Description Language) to describe the WSQM in a standardized type of XML representation. Additionally, the TC will develop test guidelines for our quality model.
