Web Services Directory - UDDI?

I was tasked with creating a WCF Registry / Web Services directory in my organization. My first thought was using UDDI. That said, UDDI doesn't seem to be in particularly good press, with some claiming it's dead - see What are good alternatives to the UDDI registry?

Considering the following:

  • this registry is solely for business purposes, that is, we want to list web services and document their functional web services.
  • not required, i.e. clients will continue preconfigured and any changes to any service will be manually replicated
  • it should be possible to automate publishing to the registry, eg. as part of the service deployment process

Are there any good alternatives worth considering?

If you are in Java land JAXR is a different place



I would just use a custom SharePoint list.
