UDDI is used extensively in my environment for Web Services Discovery (Both for design and run-time use cases). Currently Windows 2003 provides a UDDI v 2.0 compliant implementation. But earlier this year UDDI v 3.0 was approved by OASIS. The leader in the field, Systinet, already has a v 3.0 implementation out there.  In addition, they have made a commitment to move away from using proprietary schemas for describing the Taxonomies to using OWL for future versions.

Does anyone out there know when we can expect an upgrade to v 3.0 from Microsoft and if there is any move to use OWL on the Taxonomy front?

Y'know UDDI is one of those all sound, no smell things. I mean, it is a great concept, but whatsup with the activity around it !!

I've found that Microsoft really does not place any emphasis on UDDI and the role that it plays in an SOA implemented via web services. As such, in the Microsoft-centric blog world, not a lot a people talk about it or if they do it is almost in passing as a technology that really did not go anywhere.

To be fair, in the normal business world, UDDI is much more prevalent inside the firewall than outside. It just so happens that my use cases just about require UDDI since we leverage dynamic discovery of services extensively.
