SAML 1.0 is Adopted - What Developers Can Expect

More than 200 security and web services vendor members of OASIS have approved specs for SAML 1.0 (Security Assertion Markup Language). The approval, with no dissenting vote, sets in motion a standards-based movement for providing a common framework for web services security.

This week, Integration Developer News takes a hard look what SAML 1.0 provides, what's missing, and the willingness of vendors to fill in the gaps.

SOAP Poised for "Clean" Royalty-Free Bill of Health

Momentum continues to build for widespread and royalty-free adoption of SOAP. Despite concerns that W3C's adoption of SOAP 1.2 specs may be bogged down by vendor claims of royalty or patent protection, analysts expect the situation will be resolved by yearend. Epicentric (one of the vendors thought to be holding IP claims on SOAP) has withdrawn those claims. While that still leaves WebMethods' claims, sources say behind-the-scenes negotiations are busily at work to put the issue to rest.

Failing that, the group wants to put in place work-around policies that will make sure work on web services standards doesn't drag. After more than a year of discussion and back-and-forth proposals, the W3C last week released its Last Call document lining out its Royalty-Free Patent Policy.
