WS-Calendar standard out for Public Review

The OASIS Web Services Calendar (WS-Calendar) Technical Committee produced an Committee Specification Draft which is now out for Public Review.

The WS-Calendar specification describes how to specify a sequence of services, how to schedule them, and how to invoke them. The specification was developed to support use cases in smart grids and smart energy, but it supports any sort of coordinated activities between domains. The committee explicitly considered coordination between energy coordination, enterprise systems, building systems, and financial markets. The specification also defines a conforming model for inheritance to reduce duplication of expression when similar services are requested in a recurring schedule.

The specification adapts the existing specifications for calendaring and apply them to a new specification for how schedule and event information is passed between and within services. The standard adopts the semantics and vocabulary of iCalendar for application to the completion of web service contracts. WS Calendar builds on work done and ongoing in The Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium (CalConnect), which works to increase interoperation between calendaring systems, and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
