Services and Contracts


My panel on services and contracts went pretty well, I think. We went through many of the issues I identified earlier. A few new things came up that I hadn't thought through. First, we discussed WS-Policy and some of the identity issues surrounding service contracts. Second, we got into a discussion of directories (UDDI). The reason for discussing directories is that much of contracts has to do with exchanging metadata and one of the ways metadata is delivered is from the directory. I'm not sure we made that clear enough for the audience.
