A new OASIS technical committee is being formed. The OASIS UDDI
Specification Technical Committee (UDDI-spec) has been proposed by the

The proposal for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS TC
Process (see http://oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml), and is
appended to this message. The proposal, which includes a statement of
purpose, list of deliverables, and proposed schedule, will constitute

OASIS UDDI Specification Technical Committee (UDDI)

Statement of Purpose:

The purpose of the Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration
(UDDI) Specification TC is to continue work on the Web services
registry foundations developed and published by UDDI.org [1]. The UDDI
specifications form the necessary technical foundation for publication
and discovery of Web services implementations both within and between

services for such things as e-mail lists and archives, and also web
pages for tracking progress. E-mail archives will be visible to the

relationships and liaisons with other activities.

The scope of the UDDI Specification Technical Committee is the support
of Web services discovery mechanisms in the following areas:
a. Specifications for Web services registries and Web service
interfaces to the registries.
b. Replication or synchronization mechanisms across multiple
c. Security facilities for access or manipulation of the registry and
maintaining data integrity.

The UDDI specifications will use implementation and language neutral
XML formats defined in XML Schema where appropriate.

The OASIS UDDI Specification TC will:

1. Accept as input the UDDI version 2.0 and 3.0 specifications
published by the members of UDDI.org [1].

2. Produce as output a specification for Web Services Description,
Discovery, and Integration. This specification will reflect
refinements and changes made to the submitted version of UDDI that are
identified by the UDDI Specification TC members, and for additional
functionality within the scope of the TC charter.

3. Liaise and/or forge relationships with other Web services efforts
to assist in leveraging UDDI as a part of their specifications or

4. Coordinate with the chairs of the other related OASIS Technical
Committees via Joint Committees as appropriate.

5. Coordinate with the UDDI Business Registry operators in order to
get early feedback from their implementation experiences.
