The Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) standard (registry) is a sweeping industry initiative. The Standard creates a platform-independent, open framework for describing services, discovering businesses, and integrating business services using the Internet. UDDI is the first cross-industry effort driven by platform and software providers, marketplace operators and e-business leaders. These technology and business pioneers are acting as the initial catalysts to quickly develop the UDDI standard. The UDDI standard takes advantage of WorldWide Web Consortium (W3C) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards such as Extensible Markup Languare (XML), and HTTP and Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. Additionally, cross platform programming features are addressed by adopting early versions of the proposed Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messaging specifications found at the W3C Web site. The UDDI standard is the building block that will enable businesses to quickly, easily and dynamically find and transact with one another using their preferred applications.
