Description: The WS-Reliable Messaging specification describes a protocol that allows messages to be transferred reliably between nodes in the presence of software component, system, or network failures. The protocol is described in this specification in a transport-independent manner, allowing it to be implemented using different network technologies. To support interoperable Web services, a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) binding is defined within this specification. By using the Extensible Markup Language (XML), SOAP, and Web Services Description Language (WSDL) extensibility model, SOAP-based and WSDL-based specifications are designed to be composed with each other to define a rich Web services environment. As such, WS-Reliable Messaging by itself does not define all the features required for a complete messaging solution. WS-Reliable Messaging is a building block that is used in conjunction with other specifications and application-specific protocols to accommodate a wide variety of requirements and scenarios related to the operation of distributed Web services.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
