Web Services Component Model (WSCM)
The Web Services Component Model (WSCM) is an XML and Web Services centric component model for interactive Web applications. The aims of the WSCM Technical Committee within OASIS are to
- Create an XML and Web Services centric component model for interactive web applications. The designs must achieve two main goals: enable businesses to distribute web applications through multiple revenue channels, and enable new services or applications to be created by leveraging existing applications across the Web.
- To harmonize WSCM as far as practical with existing Web application programming models (e.g. Portals, Macromedia Flash, etc.), with the work of the W3C (e.g.XForms, DOM, XML Events, XPath, XLink, XML Component API task force), emerging web services standards (e.g. SOAP, WSDL, WSFL), and with the work of other appropriate business information bodies.
- Ensure that WSCM applications can be deployed on any tier on the network and remain target device and output markup neutral.
- Ultimately, to promote WSCM to the status of an international standard for the conduct of XML and Web Services based web application development, deployment and management.
Note: Members of the OASIS Web Services Component Model (WSCM) Technical Committee voted to change the group's name to the OASIS Web Services for Interactive Applications (WSIA) Technical Committee, in order to better describe the purpose of their work.
