HP, IBM, SAP team up on UDDI interface
Hewlett-Packard Company, IBM Corp., and SAP AG have announced that they have committed to support UDDI4J, an open-source Java class library that supplies an application-programming interface (API) for interacting with Universal Description Discovery and Integration (UDDI) registries.
With UDDI4J, Java developers gain a common API for programmatically registering services as well as for querying and accessing information in UDDI-based registries. The agreement is also intended to benefit the Web services industry as a whole by reducing hurdles associated with creating Web services tools. IBM originally made UDDI4J available as open source in January 2001.
