The TC has begun using two additional OASIS operated sites:
- http://docs.oasis-open.org/wsrp/ - A repository with stable URIs. Resources placed in this repository will not only have a direct URI, but might be referenced by the URI pointing to the most recent version of the resource.
- http://wiki.oasis-open.org/wsrp - Wiki pages TC members use to develop/track proposals and issues.
The TC has started producing a Technical FAQ.
The erratum items approved by the TC relative to the WSRP v1 specification are collected together in WSRP v1.0 Errata.
The WSRP v1.0 Primer has been approved by the Technical Committee.
A mailing list has been established to assist developers working on implementing WSRP. Subscription to such OASIS email lists can be managed at http://www.oasis-open.org/mlmanage/
WSRP defines a set of interfaces and related semantics which standardize interactions with components providing user-facing markup, including the processing of user interactions with that markup. This allows applications to consume such components as providing a portion of the overall user application without having to write unique code for interacting with each component.
The WSRP Technical Committee has the following subcommittees:
- Conformance SC: Chartered to define conformance assertions relative to the WSRP standard and support/oversee efforts to provide a conformance toolkit.
- Cross-Portlet Coordination SC: Chartered to define how portlets can react in a coordinated manner to user interactions with any portion of the overall application.
- Description and Transport Issues SC: Chartered to oversee casting the specification into WSDL in a manner that is usable with as many web stack tools as possible.
- Interfaces SC: Chartered to deal with all proposals not explicitly assigned to other subcommitees.
- Interoperability SC: Chartered to provide a forum for discussion of interoperability issues encountered when different implementations of the specification test against each other.
- Markup SC: Chartered to oversee definition of fragment rules for various markup languages (this is currently being requested of the various groups that standardize the markup languages) and useful CSS classes.
- Primer SC: Chartered with producing a primer for the WSRP standard.
- Publish/Find/Bind SC: Chartered to define standard mechanisms by which WSRP services can be published to registries and later discovered by interested parties.
- WSRP 2.0 specification; approved as an OASIS standard in April, 2008.
- WSRP 1.0 specification; approved as an OASIS standard in August, 2003.
