UDDI - SAP Developer Network (SDN)

Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI)

UDDI is the Web services standard for publication and discovery of Web services and their providers. Services can be categorized by means of well-known taxonomies for various purposes, for example, the interfaces they implement, the access protocols and policies they require or the application components that offer them.

SAP NetWeaver in general as well as the Enterprise Services Registry in particular support UDDI 3.0 in order to provide standardized access to Enterprise Services Definitions and to enable an Enterprise Services Lifecycle Management.
