Simon Fell > Its just code > GXA IP

Monday, June 7, 2004

Been reading up on WS-Eventing (and WS-Events) recently, however the potential IP issues with both specs (the spec doesn't give you any IP license, nor indicate what terms any IP license might be on) would make me nervous about implementing either of them. I tend to agree with Steve Vinoski's post that this is hurting more than helping. Until the GXA folks detail the IP stance for all these specs, how is anyone outside of the GXA clan (not just people building tools, but people building services too) supposed to make any forward progress ?, or perhaps with my cynical bastard hat on, I'd say that was the point.
