WS-Discovery

Metadata Specifications Index Page

Call me jaded, but here's another attempt to solve the problem of link local discovery. You know, since Jini, JXTA, UPnP, Rendezvous, and others did it so horribly. Oh, I know... their downfall was that they didn't use bloated SOAP! Ah ha! Luckily, we now have a discovery protocol that uses XML and SOAP. Can't wait to try to fit all that XML into a single datagram.

I dig XML. But there might be a better way to ask "Is there a printer here?" than a huge SOAP message.
