webMethods, Inc., a business integration and optimization software company, announced successful demonstration of interoperability of the WS-Policy Candidate Recommendation specifications using the UDDI (universal description, discovery and integration) standard. The first-ever interoperability evaluation event for the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Services Policy 1.5 Framework and Attachment (WS-Policy) Candidate Recommendation specifications was hosted by webMethods.

During this recently concluded event, leading products that support the UDDI registry specification for lifecycle governance - the HP SOA Systinet Standard Edition and the webMethods Infravio X-Registry - were used to demonstrate interoperability with the Layer 7 SecureSpan XML Appliance, a widely deployed policy enforcement point, using the WS-Policy specifications. The development of a standards-based model for governance interoperability between policy enforcement points (PEP) and each policy's system-of-record represents a significant step towards enabling standards-based federated policy management for the enterprise.
