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 advances.

Further information on UDDI Version 3.0 is available at
