Web services and XML groups join forces
Two organizations developing standards for XML and Web services are joining
larger standards bodies to advance their technology.
The Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) project announced
that with the new release of UDDI Version 3.0, it is turning the technology over
to the Boston-based Oasis business standards organization. Oasis said it will
take charge of further development of UDDI, which, along with SOAP and WSDL, is
one of the building blocks of Web services.
The Version 3.0 of UDDI includes enhancements for: XML-based digital
signatures, improved Web Services Description Language (WSDL) support, taking
Web services registrations from a local registry and promoting them to a private
or public region, and new subscription API and core information model
Further information on UDDI Version 3.0 is available at http://uddi.org/pubs/uddi_v3_features.htm
