UDDI project has potential federal uses

The Universal Description, Discovery and Integration directory project, at www.uddi.org, has enlisted more than 200 vendors for its free directory of platform-independent electronic-commerce applications for the Web.

The Chief Information Officers Council's Extensible Markup Language Working Group is interested in exploring government use of UDDI, said Eliot Christian, a data and information systems manager at the Geological Survey.

Steve Holbrook of IBM Corp.'s emerging technologies software group said the directory would make it easier for agencies to automate the delivery of services.

The first version of UDDI went live early this month with a few entries. So far, IBM and Microsoft Corp. are mirroring the directory, and Hewlett-Packard Co. has agreed to host a third copy.

Several public discussions and mailing lists related to UDDI are available at www.yahoogroups.com.
