OASIS announced its members have formed the OASIS Web Services for Remote Portals (WSRP) Technical Committee to create an XML and Web services standard that will allow the plug-n-play of visual, user-facing Web services with portals or other intermediary Web applications. These WSRP services will enable businesses to provide content or applications in a form that does not require any manual or application-specific adaptation by consuming portals and applications. WSRP will allow remote portlet Web services to be implemented in a variety of ways, including Java/J2EE and Microsoft’s .NET platform. WSRP services will be built on standard technologies including SOAP, UDDI, and WSDL. Members include: Bowstreet, Divine, Documentum, Epicentric, Factiva, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard Company, IBM, Interwoven, IONA, Oracle Corp., Plumtree Software, Reed Elsevier, Reuters, SilverStream Software. Participation remains open to all organizations and individuals. www.oasis-open.org
