Defining an open framework for modeling and accessing stateful resources using Web services

Table of Contents


WSRF v1.2 is an OASIS standard - see Technical Work Produced by the Committee

The work of the WSRF TC is complete and no further meetings are scheduled.


The purpose of the OASIS WSRF TC is to define a generic and open framework for modeling and accessing stateful resources using Web services. This includes mechanisms to describe views on the state, to support management of the state through properties associated with the Web service, and to describe how these mechanisms are extensible to groups of Web services.

For more information, see the TC Charter and FAQ
