IBM OPEN SOURCES TECHNOLOGY FOR ACCESSING UDDI BUSINESS REGISTRY Monday 29 January 2001 PDF Print ...Continues Commitment to Open Source Implementations of Standards for Web Services... IBM today released the source code for its UDDI for Java (UDDI4J) technology, which allows e-business applications to communicate with the UDDI Business Registry. This code is freely available via IBM's online resource for developers, developerWorks. UDDI4J, the latest example of IBM's commitment to open standards, is a Java (TM) API that provides a client-side programmatic interface to easily access any UDDI registry. The UDDI4J package can be used to easily develop a Java application that can publish and find services in a UDDI registry. The client code from the Apache SOAP release is used to transport messages to and from a UDDI registry. The UDDI4J technology will be open sourced via IBM's Public License, which closely adheres to terms of many of the other popular open source licenses used by the developer community. The technology will be housed on IBM developerWorks Open Source Zone, a designated area for open source projects from both IBM and non-IBM sources. It can be found at http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource IBM is a founding member of the UDDI Project http://www.uddi.org an open industry initiative that will enable businesses to discover each other and define how they interact over the Internet. With the Internet quickly emerging as the new integration platform for e-business, UDDI is one of several technologies that is at the core of IBM's vision for Web services being delivered via the WebSphere Software Platform for e-business. Today, users can use UDDI4J to interface with the public UDDI test registry, which went live in November. It can be found at http://www-3.ibm.com/services/uddi/testregistry/ IBM is also driving the development of several other key standards for Web services including SOAP, WSDL, XAML and accompanying open source implementations of these technologies. Developers will find UDDI4J complementary to IBM's XML and Web Services Development Environment (WSDE), the first development environment which allows HTML, Java, SQL and XML developers to quickly extend existing e-business applications so that they can deliver business informational Web services. UDDI4J is also complementary with IBM's Web Services Toolkit (WSTK), which provides developers with a runtime environment as well as examples of how to design and execute Web Services. The WSTK, available since July 2000,can be downloaded at IBM's alphaWorks Web site at http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/webservicestoolkit Several industry leaders have committed to participate in the ongoing development of UDDI4J including: Bowstreet, Compaq, Crossgain, DataChannel, Intalio, XMethods and XMLGlobal.
