   ANN: Distributed Registry for Web Services

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Folks,

You are invited to participate in the collaborative development of a
distributed registry technology.

We have created a list (distributed-registry) for discussion of this
topic.  To subscribe to the list send an empty email to:


Here is a description of the purpose of a distributed registry:

A Web service registry provides information about what services do, and
how they are used. Today's Web service registries (e.g., UDDI and ebXML)
are implemented as centralized repositories. That is, all services store
their service descriptions within a single, or a small number of
registries. The purpose of this effort is to develop a concrete,
implementable architecture for a highly distributed registry. The notion
is that each Web service defines their own registry - comprised of the
collection of documents that describes the service. 

We have created a Web page which 
   - lists the design goals for a distributed registry, and 
   - proposes an architecture

Here's the URL to the Web page:


We invite you to participate in the development of this technology. 

           Roger L. Costello and David B. Jacobs
