I’ll be honest, with a quick glance at WS-Enumeration and WS-Transfer I’m at what Don refers to as Stage 1. Especially WS-Transfer which appears at first glance to be CRUD for web services. Maarten talks about using CRUD only when you can afford it. My biggest issue with CRUD is that it assumes a trust relationship – that some other service is responsible for deciding when and how to CUD entities that I manage. I can’t imagine exposing an interface like that on any service I build.
But it is nice to see we’ve started publishing specs in easy to download PDF format.
