Hi!

This is a simple question that might result in a quite long answer. ;)

Since I started working with Web Services, the only tools, APIs and
platforms available are only focused on the standards presented by UDDI.
They use SOAP for communication, WSDL for integration and UDDI for
discovery (basically). Where will DAML-S fit in to all of this? I have
only found one Java API for DAML (Jena from HP) and none of the other
software vendors even mention the existance of DAML-S anywhere. Is
DAML-S supposed to be an alternative to the UDDI approach or is there
any work on integrating the two standards in progress? 

The reason I'm asking is that I am about to decide if I should use
DAML-S in my more advanced discovery mechanism or whether I should
focuson the once (less complex) presented by UDDI.

Regards,
Erik Hellman
