OASIS, the international e-business standards consortium, today announced that its members have approved Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) version 1.1 as an OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification. WSDM continues to enable management applications to be built using Web services, allowing resources to be controlled by many managers through a single interface. WSDM 1.1 integrates the standard versions of its dependent specifications: W3C's WS-Addressing and OASIS' WS-Resource Framework and WS-Notification.

"WSDM 1.1 now provides a management stack that is completely standards-based. WSDM serves as the starting point for using Web services to solve the management integration challenge," said Heather Kreger of IBM, chair of the OASIS WSDM Technical Committee. "It addresses two primary functions - how to use Web services to perform management tasks and how to manage the Web services themselves."
