Hi all,

UDDI TC is considering RDF to inlude semantic descriptions with UDDI
entities.
This proposal is at an early stage, but I'd like to start a wider discussion
on this option because it intersects with the general dicsussion on use of
semantics with WS.
I hope this mailing list is the right place to get the bigger picture of
what we are trying to do.

The idea is to include RDF statements as part of an UDDI entity so that the
statements can be linked to some external taxonomies or ontologies (see the
attached diagram).


In this case the role of UDDI does not include reasoning or parsing the
taxonomy - it provides purely registery and discovery services.

Your comments and ideas are very welcome.

Regards,
Max Voskob
member of UDDI TC
