RE: Seeking lURNed advice on UDDI

I thought UDDI might be real usefull but I might be totally wrong here is
that there isn't mechanism to traverse the list and select by context. Don't
you need a schema reference to the list server that dictates this is my API.
And UDDI basically tranforms into a not to clever data mapping server.

I would much rather see a peer to peer method so that the AI guys can find a
method data negotiation based on the context of business process ontologies.
It would be dependent on the consise definition of individual process
ontologies positioned correctly amongst a large collection of processes. Now
I am just a dumb oakey but wouldn't the semantic part make it more accurate
as it grows as a collection.

Subject: Seeking lURNed advice on UDDI

I'm beginning to think that UDDI might be real useful.

If you check out the spec-ware (PDF, grrrrrrrrrr) at


it turns out that the UDDI tagset is in a namespace whose
name is "urn:uddi-org:api".  This makes me uncomfortable, but
maybe that's just because I don't understand URNs.  First off,
how unique is that?  It doesn't *look* very unique to a URN

Second, does this mean that you can't use RDDL or even an
ordinary web page to allow the eager-to-learn to discover
some things about the namespace?   Or are have URN resolvers
been quietly been springing up while I wasn't looking?
(Neither IE nor Mozilla do anything useful for me with this
particular URI).  -Tim
