Here's a news item that is probably of general interest:

'Standards body OASIS on Tuesday will subsume UDDI.org, the consortium
driving the UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration)
technology that forms the foundation of Web services directories. OASIS on
Tuesday also will formally introduce the third iteration of UDDI, with a new
focus on internal corporate deployments.'

'"In the past two years, there has really been a shift in the way we think
about UDDI," said Chris Kurt, UDDI.org program manager and a group product
manager for Web services standards at Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft. "We're
seeing more and more internal adoptions of UDDI."

To that end, UDDI 3 includes several improvements that tune it for internal
deployments. Version 3 makes it easier for applications to exchange
information in clustered configurations, increases security, improves
searching capabilities, and includes a set of APIs that enable notifications
and updates to be sent out when changes occur.

Kurt said that OASIS, and the UDDI folks within, have not given up on the
idea of UDDI for dynamically discovering and connecting Web services to each
other. Instead, they have come to believe that the original vision will be
realized as consumer Web services emerge.'
