IBM Corp. on Thursday delivered to the open source community its UDDI4J technology, which is Java-based code that makes it possible for developers to more easily build applications that can populate UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration) registries with business data, as well as search those registries for potential partners. The significance of making the code available to open source, according to IBM officials, is that it enables developers to experiment with it and further enhance its usability. A coalition of vendors and consultants have been working on the UDDI business directory, which is intended to be an XML-based holding tank for what businesses do, the services they offer, and how they interface with their computing systems.
