WS-Membership - Failure Management in a Web-Services World
An important factor in the successful deployment of federated web-services-based business activities will be the ability to guarantee reliable distributed operation and execution. Failure management is essential for any reliable distributed operation but especially for the target areas of web-services, where the activities can be constructed out of services located at different enterprises, and are accessed over heterogeneous networks topologies.
