Distributed Registry




Roger Costello and David Jacobs have announced a project to collaboratively develop a distributed registry technology for web services as an alternative to UDDI or ebXML’s centralized strategies.

The project has a home page that describes it more fully, including details of design goals and a mailing list.

All buzzwords aside, making sure that a web services directory/registry is distributed is good.  It means that nobody controls it, that it can’t easily be attacked, and it’s not going to put huge strains on any one set of resources.  Good stuff.  Here’s another thing to keep an eye on.
