Sun to join WS-I

The Register: Sun to join WS-I there had been a rist between MS, IBM and the others who set up the WS-I excluding Sun, but this may now be resolved as Sun joined this week, and will have a seat on the board. Part of the rumours of discord were linked to suggestions that IBM might charge royaly fees for use of some concepts in Web Services in particular ebXML (actually sponsored by Sun and the UN). The WS-I fast track the slower W3C processes for some standards relating to Web Services.
