The emergence of Web services has promised to IT industry a technology that provides the ability to establish integration standards and therefore to evolve and integrate business-to-business (B2B) applications effectively in a platform-neutral and language-neutral fashion. Consequently, quality of service (QoS) has become a significant factor for this promising technology. The question is “How to provide accessible, reliable, secured, and trustworthy Web services?” Since the nature of communication of Web services is based on exchanging messages, therefore message-oriented middleware (MOM) is often seen to be the first solution to promote the quality of service for Web services. Web Services Message Queue (WSMQ), a MOM, has been designed at the University of New South Wales to answer some of the above questions. In this paper, we summarize WSMQ features and functionalities, and describe new extensions in order to further augment the quality of service support in WSMQ.
