Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Discovering useful web services, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Services.
When soap was first created the web services industry envisioned…a network of services that would be available world wide.…If you already knew where a service was hosted…and how to call it, you were in great shape.…But what about those services that might…serve a purpose, but didn't get much marketing?…How would developers look up and discover services they never knew existed.…The concept…of web service registries was created.…A web service registry would be a directory of available services.…
And each service would describe its capabilities in another…XML based language Called Universal Description Discovery and Integration.…Sometimes pronounced UDDI. UDDI was developed in 2000.…And was later included in another standard called Web…Services Interoperability, or WS-I.…And up until about 2006, there were a number of public UDDI-based registries.…That were managed by major web services players including Microsoft, IBM, and SAP.…
But, as publicly available RESTful services started…taking over in the mid-2000's, these public registries were mostly closed.…
