Install and Configure Microsoft UDDI Services

UDDI Services provides Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) capabilities for sharing information about Web services within an organization’s intranet, between business partners on an extranet, or on the Internet. UDDI Services can help improve the productivity of developers and information technology (IT) professionals with more reliable and manageable applications. With UDDI Services you can prevent duplication of effort by promoting reuse of existing development work.

In a stand-alone installation, all default and optional components are installed on a single server. An instance of SQL Server must be installed before installing UDDI Services. When installing UDDI Services, the local instance of SQL Server is used to host the UDDI Services Database. UDDI Services Web Application and Notification Service are then configured to use the local UDDI Services Database.
