I just went to have a look at the UDDI specs. It sounds like they have
come up with a very similar solution to MOBY, though reading the API it is
obvious that it was specifically designed for B2B transactions (e.g.
findBusiness and findRelatedBusiness calls are part of the API).
I would worry about two things in particular:
(1) there is no obvious indication, as far as I could see, that UDDI
is true open-source... which makes me nervous!
(2) It might be limiting to use a foundation which has been so
strongly 'typed' to business activities
I admit, these are just my first impressions after a 15 minute browse
through the docs, so please correct me if I am wrong. Does anyone know
more about it?
