Interesting perspective from Randy Heffner (Forrester) in the latest issue of Redmond Magazine:
The quote above seems to be inspired by current OASIS activities associated with SCA. Conflating multi-platform WS-* specifications and standards with what have traditionally been Java-oriented initiatives is, I think, somewhat misleading. (While SCA is not exclusively Java, the SCA initiative has been largely driven by Java vendors.)
Regardless of this confusion, I think movement of these initiatives to OASIS is a good one - although I would have preferred to see the specs become a series of OASIS Technical Committees instead of a separate Member Section (the governance difference between these types of groups is really unclear to me).
