Hi Alex,

Sounds pretty interesting. I'd love to read your thesis; do you have a 
pdf version you can send us?

How do your changes line up with JAXR?

UDDI never reached its potential at the 'internet' level, but it is sort 
of reborn at the company level. JBoss ships jUDDI with the SOA Platform 
where it is used as the central service repository.

The trick with adding these features will be to add them in a such a way 
that we can still be spec compliant; so they have to be 'on top of' the 
current infrastructure or will undermine the adoption of jUDDI itself. 
People like to be vendor neutral; which  why there is UDDI specification 
to begin with. On top of building on top of the spec if add these 
features we'd have to document how other vendors can implement these 

Looking forward to discussing this some more!
