Stefan Tilkov,

Radovan writes about increased demand for UDDI, and interestingly enough suggests that Systinet is probably going to REST-enable their registry.

Ever since reading Paul Prescod’s REST article, where he took UDDI as an example case, I felt that this would be a great idea. With UDDI V3’s optional GET binding (which Systinet supports), it’s possible to get at every UDDI entity via a simple HTTP GET. Extending that to support PUT should be easy, and the publishing API is pretty REST-like, anyway.

I like UDDI — as long as we’re not talking about the Internet scale use case (the UBR). In a company-internal or extranet-style SOA, the registry is an essential component.
