Here's the most recent of a series of announcements since the agreement - announcement title is "Microsoft and Sun Publish Web Single Sign-On (SSO) Identity Specifications": http://xml.coverpages.org/ni2005-05-16-a.html Also see the following paragraph in the above: "The press conference marked the one-year anniversary of a 10-year technical collaboration agreement, first announced in April 2004, which outlined a framework for increased cooperation between Sun Microsystems and Microsoft Corp to enable their products to work better together. This press event updates information provided in the December 2004 progress report." The URL for the progress report is: http://xml.coverpages.org/ni2004-12-02-a.html Since the agreement, Microsoft and Sun have also begun collaboration on a series of specifications, including several that are on an open standards track, including WS-Addressing (W3C) and the recently announced OASIS WS-RX TC (not a prescription for Web Services, but a reliable messaging spec comprised of WS-ReliableMessaging and WS-RM Policy).  http://www.oasis-open.org/news/oasis_news_05_10_05.php Joe Kind Regards, Joseph Chiusano Booz Allen Hamilton Visit us online@ http://www.boozallen.com > Last I saw, the W3C is demanding more numbers and the big > vendors save Sun are fighting it publically.
