Executable Name: sqlservr.exe –sUDDI
Log On As: LocalSystem
Description: The MSSQL$UDDI service is installed when you install the Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) feature of the Windows Server 2003 family, which provides UDDI capabilities within an enterprise. The SQL Server database engine is the core component of this feature.The MSSQL$UDDI service utilized by UDDI manages all of the files that comprise the databases owned by an instance of SQL Server. It is the component that processes all Transact-SQL statements sent from SQL Server client applications. The MSSQL$UDDI (SQLServer.exe) service allocates computer resources effectively among multiple concurrent users. It also enforces business rules defined in stored procedures and triggers, ensures the consistency of the data, and prevents logical problems such as allowing two people to try to update the same data at the same time.UDDI is an industry specification for the description and discovery of Web services. The UDDI specification builds on the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), XML, and HTTP/S protocol standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). UDDI services are standards-based XML Web Services designed for enterprise developers to efficiently publish, discover, share, and reuse Web Services directly through their development tools. Built on the Microsoft .NET Framework, UDDI services use proven SQL Server technology and tools to provide a scalable storage mechanism. IT managers can leverage UDDI services support for standard categorization schemes and Active Directory authentication, allowing for easy integration within an enterprise environment.
