UDDI

Stands for "Universal Description Discovery and Integration." UDDI is a protocol that allows businesses to promote, use, and share services over the Internet. It is an OASIS Standard, which is supported by several major technology companies. Members include Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Avaya, Sun Microsystems, and others.

The UDDI protocol serves as a foundational tool that allows businesses to find each other and complete transactions quickly and easily. Companies that use the UDDI protocol can extend their market reach and find new customers while also finding other businesses that offer useful services to them. Because UDDI uses a standard format for describing business services, it is easy to search and find useful services offered from other businesses.
