The W3C XML Schema Patterns for Databinding Working Group have published updated Working Drafts for "Basic XML Schema Patterns for Databinding Version 1.0" and "Advanced XML Schema Patterns for Databinding Version 1.0"

XML Databinding Interop Report As I've mentioned before this is one of the only efforts who are looking at ways of working around the fact that XML Schema is inconsistently implemented across various web service Toolkits.

This is also the primary reason that I am moving away from databinding in general to consuming the XML directly which enables me to use native XML technologies such as XPath, XSLT etc.

What is even more interesting is that as part of the report they have come up with a Test Suite and have run it against a range of web service implementations (Axis, Axis2, .NET 2.0, WCF, XFire and more..) and documented it in an Interoperability Report. The results are interesting... to say the least!

Highly recommended reading if interested in web services interoperability.
