Understanding UDDI Services Categorization Scheme Editor

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

A UDDI Services categorization scheme is an XML document that contains two primary elements: a tModel that represents the categorization scheme and one or more associated categoryValues that represent the categories and subcategories of the scheme.

When you create a new categorization scheme by using UDDI Services Categorization Scheme Editor, a new tModel is created automatically and assigned a unique tModelKey. When you add or copy a category by using UDDI Services Categorization Scheme Editor, a new categoryValue is created automatically and assigned a unique keyValue.

When you add, move, or copy a subcategory, the parentKeyValue is automatically assigned the keyValue of the parent category. If you open a categorization scheme document that contains a category with a parentKeyValue that does not match any of the keyValues in that scheme, UDDICatSchemeEditor is not able to determine its parent category. When this happens, a parentKeyValue Mismatch dialog box appears that you can use to either make the category a top-level category or permanently remove the category and its subcategories from the scheme.

When you import a categorization scheme by using an existing tModel, the original categorization scheme that is associated with that tModel is overwritten.

If you are replacing an existing categorization scheme in a UDDI Services site, change the value of the new categorization scheme's referenceExistingTmodel property to true and change the value of the tModelKey property to match the tModelKey of the tModel of the existing categorization scheme.
