Re: Web Services and Quality
<Quote> 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. </Quote> 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...
