Web Services Context (WS-Context)

January 2006


This document describes version 1.0 of the WS-Context namespace.

Namespace URI Versioning Policy

The pattern of the WS-Context v1.0 namespace URI shall be:


Where yyyymm is the century, year and month chosen by the TC for that version of the namespace URI.

It is the intent of the OASIS WS-CAF Technical Committee that the WS-Context v1.0 namespace URI will not change arbitrarily with each subsequent revision of the corresponding WSDL or XML Schema documents but rather change only when a subsequent revision, published in conjunction with a Committee Draft or Committee Specification results in non-backwardly compatible changes from a previously published Committee Draft or Specification.

Under this policy, the following are examples of backwards compatible changes that would not result in assignment of a new namespace URI:
