>By now most of you have seen the announcement about UDDI. Many of
>you have posted responses and questions to the announcement. The
>most pressing question is how does it relate to ebXML.
>Having spend the last 36 hours in talking to some of you, as well
>as getting guidance from my executive members and project team
>leads let me pass on what my view is in regard to UDDI.
>First, it is a very positive sign confirming that our efforts are
>on the right track. With many of our own participants joining the
>project, UDDI will hopefully move from the proprietary solution
>towards a open specification and at the same time ensure
>interoperability with ebXML.
>In regard how does it relate to our own work. Many of you may not
>be aware of it, but our Business Process and Register & Repository
>Team had right from the start in their work plan Trading Partner
>registration and discovery. Because of previous work done by
>CommerceNet in this area they did not spend much time on the
>topic. This created the impression that this was not an ebXML
>deliverable. You may recall that our main goal is not to reinvent
>the wheel and instead use work that fits our requirements and
>needs. Therefore the plan was to use the eCo specification
>(http://eco.commerce.net/rsrc/index.cfm) instead of developing our
>own. Having talked to the BP and RR team leads this was
>reconfirmed to me again today.
>So where does that leave UDDI and ebXML? In my view ebXML should
>continue with its plan to use the eCo specification since it is a
>open specification and fits our needs. Further, it never hurts to
>take a look at other work in order to reconfirm what one is
>currently doing. Adopting UDDI at this stage is premature since
>there has not been an offer to make this an open specification,
>this is planned for much later. Further, UDDI sits on top of SOAP
>and utilize 30 SOAP type messages for querying, requesting and
>receiving information. Yes, it is true that the services
>identified by the trading partner can be of any type, including
>ebXML. However, one needs to interface to the register in order to
>use it, and that will require to use SOAP and the UDDI SOAP type
>messages. Therefore, instead of ebXML changing its specification
>to be UDDI compliant I see a benefit for UDDI to ensure ebXML
>interoperability as their first step towards a truly open
>development effort.
>In closing, I don't see that with the UDDI announcement our game
>plan needs to change. There will always be initiatives that may
>create overlap because companies can't wait for standardization to
>finish. In a perfect world those efforts would ensure
>interoperability.  Knowing that many of our own participants have
>joint UDDI in an effort to ensure openness and interoperability, I
>am convinced that over time UDDI will be a tool ebXML implementers
>can utilize.
