Enterprise Linux Today: IBM Open Sources Java API For Accessing UDDI Business Registry

Jan 26, 2001, 19:07 (0 Talkback[s])

"IBM has released the source code for its UDDI for Java (UDDI4J) technology, which allows e-business applications to communicate with the UDDI Business Registry. This code is freely available via IBM's online resource for developers, developerWorks."

"UDDI4J, the latest example of IBM's commitment to open standards, is a Java API that provides a client-side programmatic interface to easily access any UDDI registry. The UDDI4J package can be used to easily develop a Java application that can publish and find services in a UDDI registry. The client code from the Apache SOAP release is used to transport messages to and from a UDDI registry, using SOAP."

"The UDDI4J technology will be open sourced via IBM's Public License, which closely adheres to terms of many of the other popular open source licenses used by the developer community. The technology will be housed on IBM developerWorks Open Source Zone, a designated area for open source projects from both IBM and non-IBM sources. It can be found at http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource"
