New ASAP standard takes programming out of the picture

Asynchronous Service Access Protocol (ASAP) is a new OASIS standard that enables Web services to be used in business processes where a response to a service request might take a long time, usually because there is human intervention required. When used in conjunction with the new version of Wf-XML, ASAP allows different companies to link up their business process management systems, regardless of the BPM vendor and without additional programming. In this interview, one of the standard's creators, Keith Swenson, chief architect of Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Fujitsu Software Corp., explains what ASAP is about and how it fits in with the myriad of standards available today. Swenson and his colleagues are scheduled to demonstrate ASAP/Wf-XML interoperability today at the Brainstorm Group Business Process Management Conference in San Francisco.
