Which WS-I Profiles have been completed?

The OASIS WS-I Member Section operated from Feb 2002 until Dec 2017. The Member Section championed Best Practices for web services interoperability by developing a comprehensive set of Web Services Profiles, Sample Applications and Testing Tools. Three of the Profiles became ISO Standards. The Web Services Basic Reliable and Secure Profiles (WS-BRSP) Technical Committee remains active and the archives of this work are publicly accessible.

The key WS-I Profiles are:

  • Basic Profile 1.0 and 1.1, which establishes core Web services specifications (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, XML Schema, HTTPS) that should be used together to develop interoperable Web services.
  • Attachments Profile 1.0, which complements the Basic Profile 1.1 to add support for interoperable SOAP Messages with attachments-based Web services.
  • Simple SOAP Binding Profile, which consists of those Basic Profile 1.0 requirements related to the serialization of the envelope and its representation in the message, incorporating any errata to date.
  • Basic Security Profile 1.0, an interoperability Profile that addresses transport security, SOAP message security and other security considerations, and composes with other WS-I Profiles. It references existing specifications and standards, including the OASIS Web Services Security 1.0 and SOAP Message Security 1.0 specifications, and provides clarification and guidance designed to promote interoperability of Web services created according to those specifications.
