"Imagine clicking on a web service -- such as driving directions
on a web site -- but being unable to access the service because it
was built using a proprietary technology platform."
"While this seems ludicrous in today's connected Internet world,
the reality is that most of the web services, development
tools, and technologies that are being talked about today,

"In sharp contrast, Oracle9i Dynamic Services leverages
industry-standard Java and eXtensible Markup Language (XML)
specifications published by the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) such
as XML Schema and XSL stylesheets to create, catalog, manage, and
personalize platform-independent e-business web services."
