Re: Web Services and Quality


Re:  Web Services and Quality

Determining whose feedback to listen to, while still keeping consumers
free of legal or other retailiation from vendors seems like a bigger
problem than the technical issues.

Yes - it seems like there would need to be some sort of established and
respected ratings service (much like Arbitron rates TV stations here in
the US(?)). Another possibility is for an open standards consortium
(such as OASIS) to, through a TC, establish a framework for Web Services
rating with wide vendor participation. A large vendor backing would add
further legitimacy to such a framework. Then, the framework could be
adopted by a Web service and the various values provided by that Web
service. 

Of course, that leads to the question of how to get Web service
providers to honestly provide values for their services...
