How many Reliable SOAP specs do we need? I have read them all, and I have come to the conclusion that they all seem different on the surface, but they are all pretty much the same underneath. Unfortunately, its the poor users who suffer from this fracture in the standards wars.

I have posted an objective, detailed article on the
WSJ site

I stress the word "objective" because I happen to be one of the authors of WS-Reliability, but I also think there are some pretty cool things in WS-ReliableMessaging.
