UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration)

The Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) specification is an industry initiative lead by Ariba, IBM, and Microsoft that defines a platform-independent, open framework for describing services, discovering businesses and integrating business services over the Internet.

UDDI was designed to provide existing directories and search engines with a centralized source for programmatic descriptions of business Web services.

The UDDI Business Registry will allow Businesses to publish their preferred terms of conducting e-commerce or other transactions for other UDDI-enabled agents to "discover".
