Web Services Publishing and Discovery


In Chapter 3, Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) is introduced as typical specification for Web services registries. In general, as illustrated in Fig. 4.1, a Web service can be published in one of two major ways: to a centralized services registry or to a distributed services registry. The UDDI registry is one typical example of a centralized services registry, whereas the Web services Inspection Language (WS-Inspection or WSIL) is an example of publishing a Web service as a distributed document.
