  • It refers to a binding - Web Service (WS) binding, but more importantly to a set of specifications.

    WS–* specifications such as WS–Reliable Messaging, WS–Transactions, WS–Security, and many more.

    wsHttpBinding= basicHttpBinding + WS-* specification

  • Hi,
    As a WCF fan, I don’t know the exact meaning of these terminology in the various of Microsoft documents. We could submit the issue if you want to get a response from Microsoft.
    https://github.com/dotnet/docs
    As far as I know, WS is a web specification, WCF implemented these standards by using WS-*binding, such as Wshttpbinding, ws2007Httpbinding, wsDualHttpBinding. In some cases, these services that conform to the web specification are capable of consumed by the web service client created with other languages.

    Feel free to let me know if there is anything I can help with.

  • Hi

    Thank you for letting me know there are some activities are proceeding even this moment.

    According to the wiki you gave me the link, "WS-*" is a prefix used to indicate specifications associated with web services.

    So I understand it is web service. :)

    Thank you.

  • Hi, 

    Thank you for letting me know importance of web service specifications.

    I found "Web Services Interoperability (WS-I) specification" as one of the web service specifications.

    The purpose of the specifications is promoting interoperability.

    I could confirm that WS is web service.

    Thanks. :)
