Further facilitating Web services

The Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) project reports that the UDDI Business Registry (UBR) is now compliant with Version 2 of the UDDI specification.

The UBR is now a multi-version UDDI registry with support for V1 and V2 of the specification. The number of public node operators has also increased from two to three, with a fourth operator expected to release its node shortly.

The UDDI Community describes itself as a group of more than 300 business and technology leaders working together to enable companies to quickly, easily and dynamically find and transact with one another. As a cornerstone of the emerging Web services architecture, UDDI benefits businesses of all sizes by creating an open platform-independent specification. As a part of the UDDI project, a global business registry has been established to allow businesses to publish and discover Web services.

The organization adds that with the availability of UDDI V2, enterprises will now benefit through improved programmatic access to UDDI data and stronger business relationship modeling. UDDI V2 enables more efficient access to UDDI registries, such as the UBR and private Web service registries, and bolsters users' confidence in the trustworthiness and legitimacy of businesses they find in the UDDI registries.
