To support Web services on devices, Microsoft has provided native support in Windows Vista for the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) standard. DPWS is an open networking standard that enables industry partners to confidently invest in Web services for devices. This provides a common networking solution that supports a wide range of connectivity and messaging options. Together with the other Microsoft Windows Rally technologies, DPWS gives network-connected device manufacturers an extensible architecture that reduces development costs and supports interoperability scenarios that have traditionally been beyond the reach of individual device types.
The paper discusses three scenarios that implement DPWS together with Windows Rally technologies. It introduces DPWS related concepts and recommends solutions, emphasizing pertinent design issues for consumer electronics, enterprise products, and vertical markets such as healthcare and fitness.
