More on SSDL

In response to the renewed interest in SSDL prompted by the IEEE article, Jim Webber recently posted about how SSDL compares to the existing W3C/OASIS stack. I blogged about the article in my previous post, I like SSDL.

The post is worth checking out if you are interested in SSDL; however, I’m disappointed by the last comment:

Of course the practicalities of the situation with huge existing investments in the W3C/OASIS stack means that SSDL will most likely remain nothing more than a toolkit for academics and geeks.

Pragmatic and perhaps true, but I hope that doesn’t turn out to be the case.

I’m still hoping to see this in a future version of WCF — I’m counting on Savas to make this happen 😉

Hey Robert,

I would love for SSDL to take off too, I just see that lots of well-meaning organisations have put a serious amount of money into making WSDL and BPEL vaguely work, and it would be unpallitable to their shareholders to then switch horses.

But if there ever were to be an OASIS or W3C standards group on SSDL then I would be there, front and centre.

Thanks for the comment.

BTW, I’m not disappointed in you; I just hope that your work comes to more than a tool for the academics and geeks.
