A few months ago, I attended a meeting with a group of individuals discussing the idea of integrating a UDDI (universal description, discovery and integration) registry into the environment. Years ago, we built a Web Service Registry based the UDDI 2.0 specification utilizing, applications made available by HP, Microsoft and IBM. These UDDI registries are freely available to try out on the Web (links are provided at the end of this article). We eventually realized that the corporation just wasn't ready to utilize a UDDI standards registry, so we simple converted the registry to a repository.
