The Novell UDDI Server is a Web services foundation technology for use in an enterprise. The server provides visibility of Web services for enterprise end-users. It also contains Web services description metadata published by departments or groups within the organization. The Novell UDDI Server is built on eDirectory and supports the UDDI v3 specification. The development of the solution was triggered by the appearance of a new version of the UDDI (Universal Description Discovery and Integration) standard and thus the new product was requested by Novell’s clients.
