UDDI Services overview

Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) is an industry specification for publishing and locating information about Web services. The Windows Server 2003 family includes UDDI Services, an optional component that provides UDDI capabilities for use within an enterprise or between business partners. UDDI Services is a standards-based XML Web service that enables enterprise developers to efficiently publish, discover, share, and reuse Web services directly through their development tools and business applications.

Built on the Microsoft .NET Framework, UDDI Services is a reliable and scalable solution that provides easy integration with enterprise technologies and tools. Information Technology (IT) managers can leverage native support for standard categorization schemes, Microsoft SQL Server, and Active Directory authentication. As a UDDI version 1.0 and 2.0 API-compliant service, UDDI Services also includes a Web interface that is translated into all of the languages that are supported by the Windows Server 2003 family.

UDDI Services product documentation is available in the UDDI Services Help. To view product documentation, install UDDI Services, and then see Windows Server 2003 Product Help. For information about installing UDDI Services, see Using UDDI Services.
