Web Services for Point of Service (WS-POS) is a technical document intended to provide retail devices, terminals and servers with the capabilities necessary to interoperate in a detached, dynamic network as well as more typical retail LANs by leveraging these W3C specifications.
Version 1.13 of the UnfiedPOS specification, released in July, 2009, includes updates that reflect feedback from device service developers and application development programmers as a result of using Version 1.12 and previous versions of this standard. Version 1.13 does not contain any new POS peripheral devices. Download version 1.13 here (13 mb file).
Extensive changes have also been made to the XMLPOS section which should be reviewed carefully by those planning on applications using XMLPOS.
