Sanjiva Weerawarana on Open Source SOA Middleware

In this interview, Stefan Tilkov talks to Sanjiva Weerawarana about web services and REST, about core standards that are essential for web services standards, open source SOA tooling, scripting languages and web services, and the strategy of WSO2 in providing open source middleware.

Before he founded WSO2, Sanjiva Weerawarana was one of the fathers of the Web services platform while working at IBM Research. He has co-authored many WS-* specifications including WSDL, BPEL4WS, WS-Addressing, WS-RF and WS-Eventing, led the creation of IBM SOAP4J which later became Apache SOAP, and went on to architect and implement many other products, including Apache Axis, and Apache WSIF.
