HP, IBM and SAP Ease Web Services Publication with UDDI and Java

(Palo Alto, CA, Somers, NY, Walldorf, Germany) – Hewlett-Packard Company, IBM, and SAP AG have committed to support UDDI4J, an open-source Java class library that supplies an application-programming interface (API) for interacting with Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) registries.

UDDI4J benefits Java developers by providing a common API for programmatically registering services as well as for querying and accessing information in UDDI-based registries. Agreement on UDDI4J also reduces hurdles associated with creating Web services tools. IBM originally made UDDI4J available as open source in January 2001. HP played an active role with IBM by enhancing the original UDDI4J API to meet the new UDDI V2 specifications. SAP contributed its experience and resources in deploying business-driven APIs to ensure rapid adoption of UDDI4J in the business community.

``As an advocate of both the UDDI and the open source movement, supporting UDDI4J makes sense for HP,'' said Jack Walicki, chief technology officer, HP Middleware Division. ``Industry agreement on a common Java API for UDDI registries is critical for the success of service-centric computing.” Bob Sutor, director of e-business standards strategy, IBM, said, ``UDDI4J is an excellent example of how the open source process can be used to create high-quality Java libraries to simplify application development around industry standards.'' ``Web services and UDDI provide essential building blocks to facilitate business on a global level through the Web. Easy development, publication and deployment driven out of heterogeneous environments are crucial for the success of Web services,'' added Willi Therre, senior vice president application integration, SAP AG.

In November of this year, HP, IBM, Microsoft, and SAP launched beta versions of public UDDI Business Registries that allow businesses to easily search, discover, and integrate Web services. Additional information can be found at the UDDI4JWeb site: www.uddi4j.org.
