WS-Addressing was submitted to W3C in August. The spec outlines a standard way for referencing and addressing network end points receiving Web services messages. The specification was submitted by Microsoft, Sun, IBM, Sun and BEA.

Mark Nottingham, principal technologist at BEA Systems, will chair the committee.
