LDDI: Microformats for SOA Registries
Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) use service registries for advertising and discovering available services, increasing service reuse, and inventorying available services. The present standard for registries is Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI), but UDDI-based servers are complex to operate and expensive to purchase and maintain. This presentation describes a registry service, called Lightweight Description, Discovery, and Integration, or LDDI, that is based on HTTP and microformats. We demonstrate how services can be published and discovered using LDDI and how services so discovered can be used in the traditional manner.
