86 minutes - In this intermediate session, you will learn how UDDI is used as a directory and discovery service for XML Web Services. We’ll dig into how XML web services can be published and located through both the UDDI Web interface, and through the UDDI API in Windows Server 2003. We’ll explore some more advanced features of UDDI by registering multiple physical access points for a single logical web service. This session will teach you how to write a managed WinForms client application and programmatically query UDDI for a list of registered services. When the primary web service fails, our client will automatically recover and select a backup service with UDDI.
