Subject: Re: [regrep] UDDI FAQ entry on ebXML Registry


Your characterization of UDDI is inaccurate. UDDI is a general-purpose 
registry. (We have a technical note that explains how to use UDDI as a 
registry for ebXML services.) It can also be used to register Web sites, 
Non-Web applications, schemas, namespaces, software assets, non-electronic 
services, etc. I know a number of users that use UDDI as a software asset 
management system.

Obviously there is a tremendous amount of overlap between the capabilities 
of the two registries. The one significant difference between the two is 
that RegRep is both a registry and a repository, and UDDI is only a registry.
