WS-Transaction under OASIS custody!

Rumors had been around for a while that this might happen, and it did: the WS-Transaction specs (proprietary work until recently) are now under the custody of the OASIS standards body: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=ws-tx

Vendors supporting the WS-TX initiative include BEA Systems, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and TIBCO. This sounds like the kind of industry momentum needed to push acceptance in the market:-)

The new standardization committee is open to anybody - I would participate too if it weren't for the strict IPR policies used by OASIS...
