Enterprise-class UDDIv3 Registry Delivers Exceptional Performance and
Scalability to Support SOA Initiatives

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 18, 2005- SOA Software(tm) (formerly Digital
Evolution), the leading provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services
management, security and governance solutions, today announced that, for
a limited time, it is offering its industry-leading Registry product for

SOA Software was the first company to ship a commercially available UDDI
version 3 registry with the release of version 2.1 of its Registry
product in May 2003. SOA Software's Registry is an enterprise-class
UDDIv3 compliant services registry and meta-data repository.  It
provides the exceptional performance and unparalleled scalability
required to support enterprise SOA initiatives. Far more than a simple
design-time discovery tool for developers, SOA Software's Registry
provides a comprehensive service policy meta-data repository that
facilitates run-time policy and endpoint discovery and binding.

By offering its Registry at no charge SOA Software expects to drive
customer adoption of Service Oriented Architecture solutions.  With this
reduced cost of entry more enterprises will adopt UDDI as a core service
meta-data repository bringing faster return on their investments in SOA
and Web services.

"Our Registry is one of the pillars of an enterprise SOA infrastructure
along with security and management," said Paul Gigg, CEO of SOA
Software.  "It offers the enterprise-class scalability, reliability and
performance required by large enterprises."

"Runtime discovery is a cornerstone of SOA," said Jason Bloomberg,
Senior Analyst at ZapThink LLC. "Other UDDI registry vendors typically
focus on design-time discovery and governance issues, assisting
developers in finding the appropriate Services for their projects. SOA
Software, however, sets itself apart from the pack with its focus on
runtime discovery as part of its overall SOA management and SOA
enablement product suite. SOA Software thus lives up to its new name,
providing the full gamut of runtime SOA enablement capabilities in its

To scale its Service Oriented Architecture projects, a large enterprise
must use a registry as a run-time discovery service to achieve true
loose coupling of applications and services.  This places considerable
load on the UDDI server and explains the need for an enterprise-class
product like SOA Software's Registry.  By using a UDDI registry as a
central store for security and management policies for its service, and
leveraging this with an award winning Web services management product
like SOA Software's Service Manager, enterprises can ensure the security
and reliability of applications and services and ensure that they
maintain compliance with internal and external governance standards.
Registry as a standalone design-time developer tool has limited value;
the true value comes with run-time enforcement of policies defined in
the Registry.

Availability and Pricing

SOA Software's Registry Version 2.4 is available now.
