Subject: RE: [uddi-promo-discuss] Promotion of UDDI


I think we need something on Vendor committment / support also.

UDDI V 3 Implementations seem very slow to appear. Vendors seem to have gone a little quiet on UDDI in the past year, which is probably why the take up by their customers is not really happening. As one of my colleagues just said, it is as if vendors have implemented it to get a 'tick in the box', but aren't really interested.

I haven't seen any either, but thanks for the reminder to reply. If
possible, I would like to see us try to cover the first three of George's
suggestions at least initially, perhaps focusing on one or two depending on
our success and the response:

      *  UDDI User Experiences
      *  UDDI Best Practices
      *  UDDI User Education

I believe publishing useful information about any or all of these three
will automatically accomplish
*  UDDI promotion / evangelism

I think George's last item will be so much a part of these three as to
preclude the need for it's being explicit
*  Usage of UDDI as a component of Web Services

I would add

* Usage of UDDI Internal Registries to facilitate reuse

      Greetings to the subscribers to our new discussion list. Let begin by
      welcoming you to the list, and by providing some background. When
      UDDI.org brought the early UDDI specifications to OASIS, we were
      looking for a flexible way to manage the further development of the
      spec. The OASIS Member Section structure was ideal, as it mapped very
      closely to the UDDI.org management structure we had in place, and
      gave us great flexibility in terms of managing as many different work
      efforts as we might need. The Member Section Steering Committee is
      now proposing that we do more to leverage the structure and to expand
      the family of those who have an interest in the success of UDDI. The
      Spec TC has done a superb job in progressing the spec. But, having a
      good spec isn't of much value if people don't know about it, or know
      how to use the technology. To that end, we are hopeful that this
      discussion list will allow us to zero in on at least one area of
      common interest, where we can start up a TC to work on some aspect of
      promoting UDDI. I gave some examples of areas we have discussed at
      the Steering Committee in the discussion list description:

      *  UDDI User Experiences
      *  UDDI Best Practices
      *  UDDI User Education
      *  UDDI promotion / evangelism
      *  Usage of UDDI as a component of Web Services

      Some of this is pretty easy - pointers to exisiting customer
      references, or keeping current UDDI product descriptions out on
      UDDI.org. But, we could also go for a TC specifically focused on what
      users need. And, invite users to participate directly. We've
      purposely left the scope very broad, to see where we might get common
      interest. We'd be delighted to hear your thoughts, or answer any
      questions you might have. Thanks much.

      Regards, George
