Mark,

If A and B are two partners in a B2B interaction, B could maintain a private
UDDI registry and A could be given access to it. So A's best way to access B
services' interfaces could be through B's UDDI.

I am not saying that it's the only way for A to communicate with B. I am
just pointing out that the concept of UDDI as a third party dropped into an
otherwise pure P2P scenario is not that clearly cut in all cases.

Ugo

Ugo,

Maybe so, but it still suggests the three-party model; A wants to
communicate with B, but is required to go to C in order to get the
necessary information to do so.

We know how to enable communication without a registry.  It's not
difficult.  Let's promote that.

Thanks.
