Group releases open-source Web services messaging app

Three of Japan's largest IT companies have developed an open-source implementation of a standard from OASIS to ensure reliable messaging between Web services applications.

The software, released on Friday, was developed by Fujitsu, Hitachi and NEC and is compatible with version 1.1 the Web Services Reliability (WS-Reliability) standard, which became an OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) standard on Nov. 15.

WS-Reliability was developed to ensure messaging between Web services applications is done reliably. For example, it can help ensure a purchase order sent from one application to another is actually delivered, or ensure that only a single copy of the order is delivered.

The software was developed as part of the Japanese government's Business Grid Computing Project and can be downloaded from the Web site of the government's Information-technology Promotion Agency at http://businessgrid.ipa.go.jp/rm4gs/index-en.html.

In addition to the three Japanese companies, other backers of the WS-Reliability standard include Sun Microsystems, Oracle and Sonic Software. An alternative standard, called WS-ReliableMessaging, is being promoted by companies including IBM, Microsoft, BEA Systems and Tibco Software.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
