Towards dynamic integration: deployment of UDDI registries in a service-oriented architecture
The important premise of adopting service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the ability to increase enterprise agility through composition and reuse of coarsegrained services. However, without dynamic integration and alignment with business processes SOA would be nothing but yet another abstract architecture proposal. The response to that issue is Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) protocol and deployment of UDDI registries. Several years of building universal and publicly available business registry showed, that the global monolithic approach is not what the market is expecting.

A proposal of the enhanced Web services registry model has been presented.
