Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration. How's that for a pretentious name?
Intro white paper: http://www.uddi.org/pubs/Iru_UDDI_Technical_White_Paper.pdf
UDDI refers to a spec and implementation of a "technical discovery layer". It's basically a web services yellow pages; a mechanism for businesses to publish information about the Web Services that they provide. The core component is an XML document called a "business registration" that contains (from a business perspective)
- "white pages" contact info
- "yellow pages" category info based on a standard taxonomy
- "green pages" tech info about the services themselves
From a technical perspective, the UDDI schema groups that information into:
businessEntity - business info, i.e. "white pages" and "yellow pages"
businessService - service info, binds a set of web services to a either a business process or category of services
bindingTemplate - binding info, each
bindingInfo points to a
tModel which is metadata that describes the formal spec for the binding
