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

See http://www.uddi.org/solutions.html for a list of real products. (I don't understand the distinction between Tools and Products -- all products listed in both sections are full UDDI server products.)

Most J2EE and Web services platform products include a UDDI server. A number of Web Services Management products also include a UDDI server. Systinet, Select, and Blazeworks (not listed on the solutions page) provide stand-alone UDDI server products. And then there are two open source projects: Novell Nsure UDDI and jUDDI.

From what I've seen, UDDI has much more traction than ebXML regrep.

I think UDDI is an excellent technology to support agent discovery and binding-on-the-fly.

Me, either, but I have a few questions for the group, just as starters:
1.  I do intelligent agent architectures, and I was looking to UDDI and UDDI servers as a way to do agent-agent discovery and 'binding on the fly'.  Is this a good use of it?  Anyone else doing this?
2.  Any upcoming commercial UDDI servers (other than the msoft promise)?  Even beta versions would do:  pointers?
3.  Any ebXML reg/reps (registry/repositories) that are evolving to UDDI servers, that anyone knows about?

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

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
