Subject: Re: [regrep] UDDI as the registry for ebXML components: Typo?
The W3C Web Services Description Working Group (http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/desc/) is developing WSDL 1.2. And, by the way, WSDL 1.1 is not repetitious. It is modular. It describes an abstract service (<portType>), it maps that abstract service to concrete protocols (<binding>), and it defines a specific service implementation that implements specific bindings of an abstract service (<service>). The <portType> and <binding> elements are reusable resources and are usually defined in separate files. The <service> definition pertains to a single service implementation. Different service providers can implement the same service type. The new WSDL to UDDI mapping describes how to register <portType> and <binding> definitions as separate tModels, and it allows users to search for services that implement a standard <portType> and support a desired <binding>.
