RE: UDDI, uddi.org and an open source project at SourceForge
Umm... probably because this is a bit of a yawner. Glad to see it otherwise. It is good that the participants have decided to cooperate but nothing about this other than that is news. Registry-based description systems for services have been recognized as the way to do distributed operations cross-company since DICE (DARPA Initiative In Concurrent Engineering, K.I. Singh, et al) initiative. Let's see, AISS (Automated Information System Services, circa 1991) originally described as part of a synthetic engineering model (B2B didn't exist as a term then): o Specify - play a role on the definition of the AIS and the contractually negotiated specification of its services o Implement - design and procure the software for the AIS and encode the organization processes and enterprise knowledge required to execute missions contracted as system services o Administer - maintain and upgrade the system services in accordance with contractual requirements and requests for improvement or expansion of these services o Control - ensure that all system services are provided and are performed as specified with the contracts Interestingly, the Trust model was emphasized then too. The organization model idea came from "Beyond the Knowledge Level", M.S. Fox, Expert Data Base Systems Proceedings of the First International Conference Len Bullard http://fly.hiwaay.net/~cbullard/lensongs.ram Ekam sat.h, Vipraah bahudhaa vadanti. Daamyata. Datta. Dayadhvam.h From: James Tauber [mailto:JTauber@b...] I haven't seen any mention of the UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration) initiative for web services on this list. It was "officially" announced today by Ariba, IBM and Microsoft. See http://www.uddi.org/
