What is WS-Splat anyway?

I just briefly gave an overview of the ten WS-* standards supported by WCF at my talk at NNUG a couple of weeks ago, as there are way too many topics there to cover in just one session. The ten supported standards are:
  • WS-Security
  • WS-Trust
  • WS-SecureConversation
  • WS-Policy
  • WS-SecurityPolicy
  • WS-Addressing
  • WS-ReliableMessaging
  • WS-AtomicTransaction
  • WS-Coordination
  • WS-MetadataExchange
Alas, Michele Leroux Bustamante has written an excellent introduction to all the different WS-* standards: Making Sense of all these Crazy Web Service Standards.

Definitely worth reading if you wonder whats the difference between WS-Security and WS-SecureConversation and other important issues. Then again, who wonders about such things...
